In addition, this Thursday the barrier of 30 million vaccinated with at least one dose was also crossed: 30,217,311 people received at least one injection, or 63.7% of the Spanish population.
If they are calculated on the population to be vaccinated, the proportion of citizens with at least one dose and with the complete regimen amounts to 71.7 and 59.5% respectively. In addition, 84.1% of people over 40 have already received the full regimen and 91.6% of this age group have at least one dose.
