Catalonia opens Covid vaccination for people aged 16 to 29
Vaccine appointments available on the official website
Health authorities in Catalonia have opened Covid-19 vaccination for people aged 16 to 29 from Wednesday.
A recent spike in coronavirus contagion, especially among young people, has prompted authorities to make vaccine appointments available to all age groups, excluding only children under 16.
Nearly 6,000 cases were reported over the last two days, almost as many as those recorded over the previous week.
As of June 29, 2021, 4,118,125 residents have been given the first dose of the vaccine, 52.5% of the total population. Out of those, 2,541,000 have also been administered a second dose (32.4% of the total population). 2,816,724 residents are considered to be fully immunized (35.9%).
