Revilla asks young people to wait a month and a half to get vaccinated before going out and then heading home to their parents and grandparents.
Miguel Angel Revilla, the president of Cantabria, has called on young people to wait a month and a half to be vaccinated before going out as they have “a very long life ahead of them”. He explained that he knows that young people want to get out and about in the world but he also said that “I don’t think we are asking for so much.”
He was speaking at the Cabezon de la Sal for the Day of Cantabria, and explained how young people are getting infected with the potentially deadly coronavirus as they go out and enjoy themselves.
He highlighted that there is no Judge or Doctor or politician demanding that the young people wait, but explained that he hopes that young people will assume the responsibility and stay safe in a bid to protect everyone.
“The vaccines are the solution and the aim is to reach 80% of people vaccinated with two doses in September, then we could start to talk about a certain collective immunity,” said Revilla, and added “there is nothing else”.
Revilla, also explained that he hopes that no more closures will be needed and businesses will remain open. He said: “the economic pandemic can take more people with it than the health pandemic”.
“That is the first battle, which depends on us and on trying to make those who are not clear about it aware of it, and that is what we have to do for a month and a bit, which is what remains,” said Revilla as reported 20 minutes.
