MALAGA – Vaccination continues at a rapid pace in Spain. More than 30% of the Spanish population is fully vaccinated. In the past weekend, more than 950,000 shots were taken. This means almost half of all Spanish adults have now been vaccinated at least once.
The Ministry of Health of Spain published the latest report of the vaccination campaign on 21 June. Specifically, 23,200,566 Spaniards have received at least 1 dose, representing 48.9% of the population. 14,431,683 Spaniards (30.4%) have already been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
80% of people over 40 have already received their first injection
For all Spaniards aged 40 and older, more than 80% of them have already received the first shot. This includes 100% of the over-80s. Furthermore, around 55% of Spaniards between the ages of 40 and 80 will receive the second shot in the coming period.
The epidemiological situation for the whole of Spain is looking more favourable every week. The average incidence – the number of positive cases per 100,000 inhabitants – has decreased by 3.9 compared to a week ago. There are currently an average of 92 corona cases per 100,000 inhabitants across Spain over the past 14 days. However, although the incidence is decreasing each week, this decrease has slowed down slightly.
Epidemiological situation by Spanish region
Only one autonomous region exceeds the limit of 150 cases per 100,000 inhabitants; Andalucia registers an average of 173 corona cases per 100,000 inhabitants, making this region the only one in Spain to fall under ‘high risk’.
In three regions – the Basque Country, Navarra and La Rioja – the average incidence is still above 100 cases per 100,000 inhabitants. The Spanish regions of Galicia, Valencia, the Balearic Islands and Murcia even register an average incidence of below 50 cases per 100,000 inhabitants, which makes them officially regarded as ‘low risk’.
