The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands has already administered 274,777 doses of vaccines against Covid-19, of which 11,516 were inoculated yesterday, the highest number recorded in a single day. Of the doses used yesterday, 4,548 were from Pfizer, 2,340 from Moderna and 4,628 from Astrazéneca; the three laboratories approved by the European Medicines Agency to vaccinate in Europe.
Until yesterday, the immunization of 98,718 people had already received in the Canary Islands the two doses of the vaccine, which represents 7.32 percent of the target population.
The vaccination calendar will continue to advance every day of the week including weekends and Easter holidays with the aim of vaccinating as many people as possible. In this sense, it will continue to inoculate large household dependents who are already being applied a second dose, those over 80 years of age, and the group between 60 and 65 years old. In addition, groups 3 and 6 are continued, which are made up of health and social health workers not previously vaccinated, workers of penitentiary institutions or others essential for society such as teachers and personnel of special, infant, primary and secondary education or who belong to the Security Forces and Bodies, Emergencies and Armed Forces.
After immunization with two doses of groups 1 and 2 (those corresponding to residents and workers of social health centers and first-line health professionals), vaccination continues with the rest of the groups established following the criteria of vulnerability and exposure.
By groups, once the immunization of 1 and 2 with the two doses is completed, the vaccination continues with the rest, among which group 4 stands out, that of large household dependents, of which 69.8 percent are already immunized with the two doses; an advance that is also notable in group 5, those over 80 years of age who are vaccinated at 60.5 percent with one dose and 18.73 percent with two.
Group 3 is already 100 percent complete with one dose and at 22.33 percent with two doses; and group 6, 26.3% with one dose.
