The Junta de Andalucía plans to start the vaccination of infant, primary and secondary education teachers against the coronavirus next week, along with members of the National Police, Guardia Civil and Local Police forces.

This has been announced by the regional government’s director of the Strategic Vaccination Plan of Andalucía, David Moreno Pérez, speaking to Canal Sur Televisión, who also admitted that only 2.4 per cent of the Andalusian population have, so far, been given the two doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

Next week, he said, it is planned to start the vaccination campaign for the education professionals and security forces personnel with the AstraZeneca vaccine, which could take a month.

According to Moreno, the campaign will be carried out in parallel with the one already running for the elderly in the community who will be supplied with either the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
