GOOD GOING: Spain beats COVID vaccination target

SPAIN has exceeded its initial vaccination target.

Some 79.4% of the adult population has been vaccinated with two doses, meaning more than 37.6 million people.

Also, 38.4 million people have had at least one dose – accounting for 81% of the population. 

More than 77 million doses from Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Janssen have been injected nationwide since the vaccination campaign began 10 months ago.

Despite this, the pace of vaccination has been slowing down for weeks and most of the doses currently being given are additional doses for at-risk groups. 

Data shows that 91.3% of the target population – over 12 years of age – have received at least one dose while 89.5% have received both. 

Asturias was the first autonomous community to reach the initial vaccination target in mid-August. 

Spain is approaching the figures achieved some time ago in the UK, which has given two doses to 81% of the population. Another 36.4% of the population in the UK has had a booster jab as well.
