Spain Begins To Immunise The Most Populated Age Groups.
VACCINATION against the Covid pandemic in Spain has entered a decisive stage. The communities have just started or are preparing to immunise those between 50 and 59 years old and already have a date, June, when they will continue with the 40 to 49-year-olds.
Those two groups bring together almost 15 million people, more than those who have been the target population until now are who are the ‘bulk remainers’.
When the immunisation of those between 59 and 40 years of age ends, there will only be vaccines that need to be administered to another 11.8 million inhabitants over 16 years of age. The bulk of the population in Spain is aged between 59 and 40 years old, and totals almost 15 million people.
An important milestone will be reached when the immunisation of those over 60 years of age is completed – currently, only 7.2 per cent have completed the schedule – because they are considered the most vulnerable to complications by the Covid, the immunisation of 40s and 50s is seen to be a true turning point, because from then on there will be much less vulnerable population to protect.
The Community of Madrid will begin to vaccinate 50 to 55 years in public hospitals against the coronavirus from today, Monday, May 17, as well as in the multipurpose Wizink Centre and in the Wanda Metropolitano stadium. At the mass vaccination points of the Wizink Centre and the Wanda Metropolitano stadium, doses of AstraZeneca will continue to be administered to the general population aged between 60 to 67 years also, the regional government said in a press release today.
The Euro Weekly News is running a campaign to help reunite Brits in Spain with their family and friends by capping the costs of PCR tests for travel.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
