* From March 25, 2022, the Catalan public health system is only updating these figures every Tuesday and Friday.

 

The Covid-19 vaccine rollout began on December 27, 2020, with a Pfizer-BioNTech dose given to 89-year-old care home resident Josefa Pérez.

That got the ball rolling on a scheme that initially prioritized care home users and workers, healthcare staff, and people with severe disabilities living at home before eventually being offered to the general population 5 and over. 

As of May 23, 2022, 6,502,431 residents have been given the first dose of the vaccine, 81.2% of the total population. Out of those, 5,952,934 have also had a second dose administered (74.4% of the total population). 6,416,278 residents are considered to be fully immunized (79.5%).

Under 65s who have already had the virus are only required to have the first dose, and others have received a single-dose jab. Therefore, the % of two doses administered and % fully immunized do not match.

Who has a right to a Covid-19 booster shot?

Boosters have also been approved for some population groups, and Catalonia has been giving them since September 17.

Booster shots are currently being given to people aged 18 to 29 whose second dose was 5 months ago or more30 to 3940 to 4950 to 5960 to 6970 and overimmunocompromised peoplecare home residents, and anyone who received the Janssen vaccine. On December 16, authorities also approved them for those who had AstraZeneca at least three months ago, regardless of their age.

As of May 23, 2022, Catalonia has administered 3,379,990 third doses (42.4%). Official data show that 47.8% of residents have received a booster shot (which includes those who had a third jab plus people who only got one jab in the initial vaccination series and then received a booster, their second shot). 

How can I get vaccinated in Catalonia if I do not have public health coverage?

Anyone who is registered in a municipal 'padró' census is entitled to at least basic CatSalut public health coverage, which includes Covid care and vaccinations.

You can apply for a health card here. Once you have received a CIP number, you can request access to La Meva Salut, the website and app from which medical records – including vaccination certificates – can be downloaded and health queries can be made. You will also be able to book vaccination appointments online. Vaccinations are only administered through the public health system.

Covid-19 data errors and changes

On June 27, 2021 the health department informed that the vaccination data for the previous day could not be updated, and would be added to the June 28 update in the June 27 figures. 

The Catalan health department did not update data on November 13, 2021 due to "technical issues."

Data shared on January 24, 2022, shows that health authorities recorded up to 111,111 vaccines administered on January 23, 2022. However, the figure represents doses given during the two days of the weekend, and not only just for Sunday.

On March 17, 2022, the graph on Covid-19 vaccination progress in top priority groups showed 0% of primary care, hospital workers, and essential workers vaccinated. This is due to a change by health authorities grouping several priority groups together.

As of May 23, 2022, 6,502,431 residents have been given the first dose of the vaccine, 81.2% of the total population. Out of those, 5,952,934 have also had a second dose administered (74.4% of the total population). 6,416,278 residents are considered to be fully immunized (79.5%).
