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 12 and over. 

Authorities aimed to administer vaccines to 70% of the population by the end of August to help ensure group immunity, but fell short of that goal, fully immunizing only 67%.

As of December 8, 2021, 6,093,577 residents have been given the first dose of the vaccine, 76.9% of the total population. Out of those, 5,302,675 have also been administered a second dose (67% of the total population). 5,982,230 residents are considered to be fully immunized (75.3%). 

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.

Third doses have also been approved for some population groups, and Catalonia has been giving them to elderly care home residents since September 17.

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

Booster shots will be given to those between 60 and 69, those 70 and overimmunocompromised people, care home residents, and anyone who received the Janssen vaccine.

As of December 7, 2021, Catalonia has administered 871,300 booster shots to these groups.

The following graphs show how the rollout has evolved in Catalonia since the first dose. All figures are provided by the Catalan health department and are updated daily.

The health department informed that the vaccination data for the June 26 and June 27 could not be updated, and the most up-to-date numbers were included in the June 28 update.
