The president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has sent a reassuring message to the people of Madrid assuring them that there are enough vaccines to puncture second doses to the population.
In a public letter sent to the PSOE spokesperson in the Madrid Assembly, Hana Jalloul, Ayuso assures that there are more than 450,000 vaccines from different commercial houses to puncture second doses.
Specifically, Ayuso has 300,256 doses of Pfizer for second doses this week and next, along with 102,480 of Modern and 144,491 of Janssen. In addition, he adds that there are stock of 25,256 vaccinations AstraZeneca for second doses over 60.
At this time, 57.7% of those over 18 years of age have the full agenda; and 76.5% have at least one dose of the vaccine.
Ayuso thus comes out in the face of comments that Madrid was delaying the second dose due to lack of planning. The Minister of Health herself, Carolina Darias, let him fall in groups with the press in the Congress of Deputies,
This Monday, the Minister of Health, Enrique Ruiz Escudero, assured that the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine could be delayed “until 42 days.” “I ask for a little patience to those who pass the 21st, but we are within what the European Medicines Agency says, and we could extend it up to 42 days, but the objective is to do it as close as possible to day 21, “he said.
Now, the Madrid president goes further and ensures that all those second doses pending from Pfizer They are “guaranteed” and will be received “within the period set in the technical sheet; always trying to get closer to 21 than 28 days”.
At this time, and according to the letter that the president has sent to the leader of the Madrid PSOE, the Madrid’s community As of July 20, he received 7,651,935 doses and administered 7,079,452.
Therefore, at the moment, the stock that the Community of Madrid has is 572,483
dose. A figure lower than that of Catalonia and similar to that of Andalusia, according to the latest data published by the Ministry of Health.
The president of the Community of Madrid reiterates in the letter some of its great claims in the Interterritorial Council such as that Health reduces the age of administration of the Janssen vaccine (only one guideline). Right now, there are 144,491 dose of the Janssen.
In the same way, he asks the socialist for help to lift the veto on the vaccine of AstraZeneca to those under 60, “with which we could get a million more vaccines.” “But the decision of the Ministry of Health without technical endorsement, plus the lack of vaccines of the rest, prevents us from achieving a higher rate of vaccination,” he concludes.
