The General Director of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom, congratulated Spain on his Twitter account. The message of congratulations is for the vaccination campaign against the coronavirus carried out by Spain, where there are almost 89.5% of the target population with the complete guideline.

“Thank you, Minister of Health, Carolina Darias and Spain for their strong leadership and walking with the #VaccinEquity speech! I hope the rest of the world will follow suit. We must accelerate our actions to save lives, “he wrote on Twitter in response to another tweet published by the official account of the Ministry of Health, in which Darias said that Europe “can and should contribute to the WHO target of vaccinating 70% of the global population by 2022. Solidarity is not a word. It is a matter of political will”.

The latest Health report indicates that a total of 37,677,168 people have already received the full guideline in Spain, which is 89.5% of those over 12 years of age. On the other hand, 91.3% have at least one dose.

By age bracket, the over-12s account for 89.5 per cent; the 12-19 age bracket for 84.8 per cent; the 20-29 age bracket for 79.3 per cent; the 30-39 age bracket for 77.6 per cent; and the over-40s for 94.7 per cent.

The third doses of the Covid-19 vaccine are also being given to people over 60 and people vaccinated with the Janssen single-dose vaccine. Already 5.8 million third doses have been administered, 4,554,665 of Pfizer and 1,264,457 of Moderna.
