Spain's 'official vaccine plan': Over 13,000 immunisation points, 10,000 extra health workers and 'fair and equal access'
24 November 2020 @ 18:50

EARLY details of a vaccination plan have been revealed and more information will be released tomorrow (Tuesday, November 24) – but Spain's president Pedro Sánchez says the strategy will be the same for the whole country and will not vary by region.

Spain and Germany will be the first two countries to present a 'complete' vaccination plan, although inoculations will not be compulsory by law as no legal instrument exists to require the whole population to receive one.

About 10% of all the vaccine doses the European Union is set to receive will go to Spain, where 13,000 'vaccine points' will be set up nationwide.

Sánchez has promised 'fair and equal access' to the inoculation, and will 'guarantee' that 'priority' groups will all be able to have it.

This means anyone with chronic physical health problems that would make catching SARS-CoV-2 even more of a serious risk, plus anyone aged 65 and over, medical workers, care staff and others who are constantly and necessarily facing far greater chances of contagion or for whom the viral load would be much higher – such as nurses exposed to Covid-19 patients.
