The Andalucian Government also informed of its vaccination process, specifying that in Andalucia as of June 19, 6,498,033 doses have been administered, using 97.50 per cent of the doses received. This figure represents vaccine doses that has been discarded or unused – after a certain time out of the fridge, it becomes unfit for use or accidental damage.
As for the province of Malaga, the regional Executive has reported the vaccination process, which has advanced to 1,235,441 doses administered (+5,150). This means a total of 792,983 have at least one dose and 467,202 people have received the complete schedule.
The Minister of Health and Families of the Junta de Andalucía, Jesús Aguirre, announced on Sunday that they plan to have the population from 12 to 18 years old by the last half of August “at least with a vaccine” against the coronavirus. “For the last half of August we want to have that moderately vaccinated band, that is to say well before the school starts,” said Aguirre in an interview in La Sexta, after being asked about the announcement this Saturday of the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, to vaccinate eso and bachillerato students two weeks before the start of the course.
Of course, this will be the case “if the flow of vaccines is correct, the one we think and the one they are telling us,” Aguirre said.

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.
