The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands reports that 19.39% of the target population has received at least one dose of one of the three vaccines against COVID-19 authorized by the European Medicines Agency.
In addition, until Sunday, the immunization of 124,687 people who have already received the two doses of the vaccine was achieved, representing 6.66% of the target population (1,871,033 people).
In this sense, the Ministry recalls that scientific evidence has shown that the inoculation of the first dose, although it does not completely immunize against disease, does protect against developing COVID-19 with serious symptoms.
Likewise, in the Canary Islands, 487,177 doses of vaccines against COVID-19 have been administered, out of the 512,410 received, which represents 95.08%. Of the total doses administered so far in the Archipelago, 328,360 were from Pfizer, 26,520 from Moderna and 132,297 from AstraZeneca.
Development of the vaccination schedule
The Ministry of Health informs that it has already begun to vaccinate people between 70 and 79 years old, who make up Group 5B, in the health centers of the Canary Islands. This group is being vaccinated with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccine.
After immunization with two doses of groups 1 and 2 (those corresponding to residents and workers of social health centers and first-line health professionals), vaccination continues with the rest of the groups established following the criteria of vulnerability and exposure.
It should be noted that group 4, that of large household dependents, is 90.20% immunized with the two doses.
As for group 5, there are already 30,645 people who have received the two doses, that is, 10.75%, while 168,282 have received at least one dose, 59.05%.
Group 3 is already 100% with one dose and 26.04% with two doses; and group 6, at 28.52% with one dose.
Of group 7, there are 4,780 people since they have been vaccinated with one dose, 26.95% of the target population.
More than 38,000 calls to 012
Between last Friday and Sunday, the service for requesting an appointment for the vaccination against COVID-19 was activated for those people born between 1952 and 1955 who had not received the SMS with the appointment and the service has received a total of 38,669 calls.
