There are already 140 vaccinated in Almería after joining 50 health workers from the West

The vaccination at the El Zapillo residence announced for tomorrow is postponed to Tuesday

Reme has kicked off vaccination in the province of Almería but it has not been the only one to receive it, since in total there have been 140 doses of the vaccine that have arrived today and that have already been administered to approximately 90 residents and workers from the Ciudad de El Ejido Geriatric Residence and fifty health workers from Poniente.

In the ejidense hospital, the honor of inaugurating the vaccination campaign has been held by Ana and Enrique, ICU nurse and Emergency Physician, respectively, who have received the first punctures of the Pfizer doses that have arrived today in Almería so that, act followed, other health workers from the Hospital de Poniente were also vaccinated until they reached 50, which leaves a total of 90 doses available at this time and that will arrive next Tuesday at the residence of El Zapillo and not this Monday as had been announced in a first moment,.

Before the start of the vaccination campaign, the president of the Junta de Andalucía, Juanma Moreno, this Sunday was excited and hopeful, which he considered the first step to recover the normality lost due to the pandemic. In this sense, he has assured that the objective of his Government is to achieve not a new normality, but a “complete” normality that is what the Andalusians as a whole want.

In this sense, he explained that the symbolic amount of 1,900 vaccines will begin to be administered today. Starting this Monday, as the Government of the Nation has promised through the Ministry of Health, a total of 70,000 doses will reach the community weekly, which will be distributed strictly under the protocol that has been marked with Health.
