All bar four regions now vaccinating the under-50s, with 30-somethings due for jabs by July

THREE more regions in Spain are about to start vaccinating the under-50s now that at least 70% of the 50-59 age group in their health service catchment areas have had one or both doses.

Galicia starts today on residents aged 40-49 inclusive, whilst Navarra will begin tomorrow (Monday, June 7) on those aged 51, 50 and 49.

Gran Canaria and Tenerife were among the latter, starting on June 1, although the smaller Canarian islands of Lanzarote and El Hierro have already administered at least the first dose to their 39-year-olds and are now immunising residents aged 38.

Castilla-La Mancha has announced it will start vaccinating its residents aged 30-39 inclusive from the last week in June, in descending order of age, meaning the only people living in the central region who have not had any doses at all by July will be children, teenagers and those in their 20s.

Andalucía has just started vaccinating its 49-year-olds – and a few areas with a low population density have started on those a year or two younger – and plan to begin immunising residents aged 46, 47 and 48 this coming week.
