27 million people in Spain have now received both of their vaccines, giving them full protection against the Covid virus.
The vaccination programme continues to be rolled out steadily across the country, with the total number of people being fully vaccinated reaching 27,262,062, with 32,169,472 having received at least one dose.
The total figures equate to 57.5 per cent of the Spanish population being double dosed and 67.8 per cent having had a single dose. 64.7 per cent are over the age of 12.
In total, 42 million people in Spain over the age of 12 will be vaccinated according to data published on Tuesday from the country’s Ministry of Health.
18,557,019 of those that have received full immunity, have been vaccinated with the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine. 4.5 million have received the Oxford-AstraZeneca, 2.2 million the Moderna and 1.8 million have had the Janssen vaccine, which requires only a single dose to achieve full immunity.
So far 100 per cent of those aged 80 and over have been fully vaccinated, with those in the 70 to 79 age bracket following closely at 98.1 per cent.
At the other end of the age groups, 3.2 per cent of those aged between 12 and 19 have been given both vaccines, as have 17.7 per cent of young people between the ages of 20-29.
In regards to those who have received only a single vaccine so far, 14.1 per cent are aged between 12 and 19, 49.8 per cent are aged between 20 and 29 and 99.0 per cent are in the 70 to 79 age bracket.
As the younger age groups receive their vaccinations, it has become very noticeable that the number of new cases amongst the younger population is dropping. There has however been an increase in reported new cases from those in the older age groups.
This comes as the Centro de Coordinación de Alertas y Emergencias Sanitarias released the latest numbers of hospital admissions for Covid patients.
The top three regions for Covid admissions is currently Catalunya with 3,156, followed by Madrid with 1,753 and Andalucia with 1,342.
Of those admitted into hospital, the region of Catalunya sees 642 patients being treated in the ICU department, in Madrid it’s 274 and in Andalucia, there are currently 238 patients receiving intensive treatment.
