Today, August 31, the Junta de Andalucia has advanced its roadmap for vaccinations in children from ages 0 to 11 years old. The approximate date that has already been established is between October and November of this year.
This date has been assured by the Councillor for Education and Sports of the Board, Javier Imbroda, however, more details have not yet been provided on how this phase of vaccination will develop.
“96.4 per cent of education professionals have at least one dose, and 94.2 per cent complete the regimen,” he assured.
According to current data being considered by the Andalucian Government up until August 30, 88.1 per cent of Andalucians over 12 years of age are vaccinated with at least one dose (in total there are 6,569,577 people) and 80.6 per cent have been fully vaccinated (which translates into 6,009,578 people).
The percentage of doses administered with respect to the number of doses received is 93.49 per cent. The total doses administered in the region are close to twelve million (11,980,271 in total), according to SUR.
Imbroda also pointed out that “Andalucia is ready to face a 100 per cent face-to-face course. We were already prepared for the previous course last year, which classified as the most difficult in history in the midst of absolute uncertainty that we faced in the middle of the rise of the second wave.”
