According to senior health official Silvia Calzon, the data seen is indeed positive, she explained: “This shows the confidence that the entire Spanish society has in vaccination.” 


So far, 1.2 million people in Spain have received two doses of the vaccine. As of Wednesday, 2.1 million people among priority groups including frontline medical staff, over 80s and nursing home residents and staff have received the first dose of the vaccine. In addition, only about 45,000 people refuse to be vaccinated.
