  • When the last figures were issued, on 23 July, a total of 9.6 million doses had been administered in the region and there were 4.6 million people fully vaccinated

More than half of the population in Andalucía has received at least one of the two doses of one of the approved coronavirus vaccines. But the data has been stalled for 48 hours, since Friday, due to "technical problems updating the database".

The Junta de Andalucía has not updated the number of people vaccinated, as all Spanish regions do, since 23 July and, in theory, the Ministry of Health should communicate the number of doses administered on Friday, Saturday and Sunday today, Monday 26 July.

According to the Friday's data a total of some 9.6 million doses had been given in the region and there were 4.6 million people with the complete regimen, that is, with the two doses required by the Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca vaccines or with the Janssen single-dose formula.

In Malaga province 1,845,027 doses have been given and the number of people fully vaccinated is 882,235. It is the second highest figure in Andalucía, as it is also the second most populated province, but a percentage analysis reveals that Malaga is still the province least covered by the campaign. Some 60.7 percent of Malaga residents have received at least one dose, far from the 67.6 percent of Cordoba or 66.6 per cent of Jaén. Malaga is, in fact, the only province in Andalucía that on Friday had not exceeded 61 per cent. This lower coverage of the vaccination campaign compared to other provinces coincides with the outbreak of the fifth wave.

Malaga also loses out in the fully vaccinated statistics. It is the only Andalusian province that has not exceeded 53 per cent of its population jabbed with the two necessary doses or the Janssen single dose. Again, Cordoba once again takes up to seven points ahead and is already close to 60 per cent.
