The news comes after politicians at the Junta de Andalucia announced plans for mass vaccinations.
Spokesperson Elias Bendodo said: “Vaccination is synonymous with the beginning of the end of the crisis and Andalucia wants to be the first on board the train of recovery.
“Mass vaccination in large spaces has already begun. Once again we are looking ahead and Andalucia is prepared to vaccinate 7 days a week, 24 hours a day in all provinces.
“We only need the Government of Spain to assume its responsibility, send us more vaccines and pitch in to give direct aid to sectors such as hotels and tourism that have been the most affected.”
Bendodo also called on Spain’s central government to, “stand firm before the European Union to demand that the pharmaceutical companies comply with the delivery of the vaccines.”
