Spain has reached 10 million citizens this Friday immunized with vaccines against COVID-19. They are about 22% of those that make up the total for the country. Achieving this figure this week was one of the objectives set in the President of the Government’s calendar, on the way to the –for now– final goal: reaching 70%. It is a chain with many links. The European Union sends doses; the central government distributes them among the communities and coordinates the strategy; the communities, with competences in health, design their final planning and execute; nursing professionals take care of the work; and the population comes to the call. Regarding the latter: 100% of those over 80 years old already have a dose, and more than 95% of those over 60. Those who have said ‘no’ represent a practically anecdotal number.
