The new vaccines against Covid-19 variants will arrive in Spain this week
Supplies of the new vaccines against the variants of Covid-19 are due to arrive in Spain this week, and they will begin to be administered in late September and early October.
The vaccines will be given first to the most vulnerable members of the population, such as the over-80s and care home residents, as confirmed by Spanish prime minister, Pedro Sánchez, who said yesterday that the country is now overcoming “one of the greatest calamities of the past 100 years”.
Sanchez said that Spain has played an exemplary role in vaccinating its own population, and donating supplies of the vaccine to other countries.
Currently, over 40 million people in Spain (85%), have been fully vaccinated, with over 108 million doses administered in total.
