Spain’s Valencia To Administer A Record 351,000 Vaccine Jabs In The First Week Of June.
The president of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, announced today, Sunday, May 30, that 351,000 vaccines will be administered next week, a record number since the vaccination process in the Valencian Community began at the end of December last year.
The president has insisted that June is the “key month” for vaccinations in order to achieve as soon as possible a degree of immunity between Valencians which it is hoped will allow them to face the economic recovery safely.
“This increased pace will allow us to reach the end of the week a total of three million doses administered in the Valencian Community,” said Puig in a statement.
The head of the Valencian Executive has appealed to the public not to relax and keep up their prudence and compliance with the protection regulations because “the virus is still there and in recent days we have noticed a slight increase in infections that we have to stop.”
The president of the Valencia region is to meet Britain’s ambassador to Spain next week to press for the region to be added to the UK’s green list of acceptable travel destinations.
Valencia, which includes the resorts of Benidorm and Alicante on the Costa Blanca, claims to be the safest place in Europe, with a Covid infection rate of 29 cases per 100,000 inhabitants compared with Spain’s overall rate of 140 per 100,000.

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.
