Spain will have a “single” vaccination strategy against the coronavirus that will have 13,000 points distributed throughout the national territory and will have the objective that in the first half of 2021 “a very substantial part of the population” is vaccinated.
“Our country will be, together with Germany, the first in the European Union to have a complete vaccination plan against Covid-19,” said the President of the Government himself, Pedro Sanchez, at the press conference after the G20 Summit.
According to the president, the plan, “designed by a multidisciplinary group of experts”, will be presented next Tuesday in the Council of Ministers and will be launched in January with 13,000 vaccination points that will guarantee “equitable access to vaccines”.
Sánchez has considered that “there are hard months left” but that the country is “prepared to achieve the objective.” “We have one absolute faith in our abilities. We are bending the curve, “he said, asking at the same time to” make a further effort “in the coming dates.
With an eye on the Christmas, the Government of Spain is “working on specific planning” for a celebration that “It will be different, but safe”, has assured Sánchez. And although he has not advanced details of this strategy, he has specified that “this year we will have to remain at a distance with our loved ones instead of hugging them.”

The President of the Government has also advanced that Spain will communicate this Monday a cumulative incidence “below” 400 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days, a figure that in his opinion demonstrates the effectiveness of the state of alarm and co-governance.
“Just four weeks ago the Government decreed a state of alarm throughout the country for six months with the goal of saving lives by avoiding collapse of hospitals, “Sánchez recalled.” Four weeks later, we can say with all prudence that state of alarm and co-governance are working“, has sentenced.
The president has confirmed that the country “has been progressively reducing the incidence of the virus for two weeks” and has advanced the data that, presumably, the department of Salvador Illa will publish tomorrow, a figure that “it is still a very high incidence“but they confirm that “the measures are taking effect”.
“We are on the right track to round the curve, but far from target: 25 infections per 100,000 inhabitants, which will tell us that the pandemic is under control “, he specified.
