  • About three million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine will arrive within two months if they pass all security tests, says Health minister Salvador Illa

Spain will have 31.5 million vaccinations against Covid-19, approximately 10 per cent of the 300 million doses which the European Commission, representing the member states, agreed to buy from AstraZeneca for 870 million euros on 27 August.

The Commission has already paid 336 million.

The vaccine will be distributed between December and June.

About three million doses will arrive within two months if they pass all security tests, says Health minister Salvador Illa.
