More than one million out of the seven million over 70s in Spain have already received a booster shot of a Covid-19 vaccine.
Andalusia, Aragón and Murcia have begun administering booster shots to the over-70 population, and the rest of Spain’s regions are expected to do so in the coming days, coinciding with the start of the flu vaccination campaign.
78.6% of the entire population of Spain is fully vaccinated, while 80.2% has had at least one shot. This equates to 37.3 million and 38 million people, respectively.
The coronavirus incidence rate in Spain is holding steady. According to the figures released on Tuesday evening, the 14-day number of cases per 100,000 inhabitants now stands at 49.03, down 0.83 points from Friday. That compares favourably with the rate in England that currently stands at 416.9 per 100,000 down from a high of 488.4 in October.
