After more than nine months of waiting, the Pfizer / BioNtech vaccine against COVID-19, a virus that has left 1.66 million deaths in the world and more than 80 million cases, arrives in Spain. The Spanish Government’s vaccination plan involves 2,295,638 people, with an average of 350,000 weekly doses to be distributed among the communities.
The first vaccination in the country has taken place in Los Olmos, Guadalajara, because it is a public residence in which there are currently no COVID-19 positives and because of its geographical location, since the doses are being received at the logistics center that Pfizer has in Guadalajara.
Araceli Hidalgo, born in 1924, became the first Spanish woman to receive the dose at nine in the morning on Sunday. In addition to being the longest-lived user of the residence, Araceli hails from Guadix, Granada, although she has been registered in Guadalajara for 25 years.
The second person to be vaccinated against COVID-19 is Mónica Tapias, a nursing assistant who has worked at the Los Olmos residence for ten years.
