The data of the Ministry of Health last Friday (the last available) show an upward trend in vaccination this week after the daily record of punctures registered on Tuesday (680,540) and Wednesday (733,245), so that the 33.5% of the population with the complete pattern. In this way, 1 in 3 citizens has vaccine immunity, while the total of people protected with at least one dose increases to 24,325,902, 51.3% of the population.
Health collects the vaccination data until Thursday, so that since Monday the communities have come to click 2,450,745 doses. The data of these four days is higher than that of previous weeks in the same period, pending the data of the inoculations carried out until this Sunday.
To date, the maximum weekly limit has been just over 3.2 million punctures, a figure that will foreseeably be exceeded this week given that vaccination has maintained an upward trend since the beginning of the week. In this sense, the Government estimates that Spain has the capacity to inoculate between 3.5 and 4 million doses weekly. What’s more, more than six million doses of vaccines are expected to arrive this week, as announced by the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, last Friday.
This is how vaccination goes by age
With the vaccination already active in the strip of 30 to 39 years in almost all the Communities (Cantabria, Comunitat Valenciana and Comunidad de Madrid have only to start with this group, although the latter has already announced that it plans to start with thirty-something in the first week of July) some territories such as Ceuta, Melilla, the Canary Islands and Cuenca are already entering the decade of 20 to 29 years.
Health has published the eighth update of the vaccination strategy, which opens it from 12 years and fixes that vaccination should be done in descending order based on age (30-39 years; 20-29 and 12-19), although it allows groups to overlap due to operational and organizational issues of each community.
In this sense, the Health data indicate that the vaccination coverage of those over 40 years of age is advancing since 83.3% have inoculated at least one serum and 49.2% the complete vaccine. The advance of vaccination in the group of 40 to 49 years, which started a few weeks ago, and is now reaching the 58.8% with at least one dose, while almost 18% have the complete guideline.
From 50 to 59 years old, just over 86% have some protection and 65% are immunized, while 60 to 69 years they have some serum punctured the 93,5% and the vaccine is 37.5% complete. Those over 70 are already almost entirely immunized, according to data from the Ministry of Health.
