Andalucía's Vaccination Plan is advancing so fast that, from the end of next week, the Junta plans to start calling under-40s for their coronavirus jabs.
This was announced this Tuesday, 8 June, by the regional government’s spokesman, Elías Bendodo, during a press conference after the weekly meeting of the Junta cabinet.
"At the end of this week we will begin to call those born in 1980 for vaccination," he said. "At the end of next week we will begin to call people under 40 years old, something that was initially scheduled for the first week of July."
The spokesman said that Andalucía is "at the forefront of the vaccination rate of all the regions in Spain" and the Vaccination Plan has been advanced three weeks as "we are going at a very good pace".
Bendodo said that, currently, "half of population of Andalucía over 16 years of age have already had a dose" of the Covid-19 vaccine. In addition, almost two million people are fully vaccinated.
“The vaccines work and we intend to reach the end of June or the beginning of July with 70 per cent of the target population vaccinated, which was the objective set by the Junta.”
