Germany and Spain set a date for the start of vaccination programs, uproar of Corona
Yesterday, Sunday, Germany, and Spain set dates for the start of their vaccination programs against Virus and Corona, which causes the Covid-19 epidemic, to be the first two countries in the European Union, and perhaps in the world, to set a date for the vaccination process against the virus that infected more than 58 million people and caused the death of about 1.4 million people.
The German Minister of Health, Jens Spahn, said that his country might start administering Covid-19 vaccines next December.
“There is reason to be optimistic that there will be an approval for a vaccine in Europe this year … and after that, we can start immediately,” Spahn said in an interview.
Spahn indicated that he would ask the German federal states to have the vaccination centers ready by mid-December, noting that “this is going well.”
The German minister confirmed that his country had received more than 300 million doses of vaccine through the European Commission, contracts, and binary options.
Also, Spain announced, yesterday, Sunday, that it will start a comprehensive vaccination process against the Coronavirus, which causes the Covid-19 epidemic, in January.
On Sunday, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said that Madrid would start a comprehensive vaccination program against the Coronavirus in January. It is expected that a large sector of the population will be covered within 6 months.
According to Reuters, he added that Spain and Germany are the first two countries in the European Union to have a complete vaccination plan.
“The campaign will start in January and will have 13,000 vaccination points,” Sanchez told a news conference after a hypothetical two-day summit of G20 leaders.
“A huge sector of the population will be able to receive the vaccination, with all guarantees, in the first half of the year,” he said.
Sanchez said his country would implement one general strategy that begins with “priority groups,” adding that he will present the plan to the cabinet on Tuesday.
However, he indicated that “we will have some difficult months ahead, but the road map has been drawn.”
It is noteworthy that Spain ranks second in Western Europe, after France, in terms of the number of confirmed Coronavirus cases, as it recorded about 1.5 million cases and 46,619 deaths.
