Araceli Hidalgo placeholder image, the first woman vaccinated against the coronavirus on December 27, has once again written a page in the history of the fight against the virus by being the first resident of a center for the elderly in Castilla-La Mancha to receive the third dose of the coronavirus vaccine, taking advantage of this milestone to send a message to the youngest: “Respect the pandemic.”
This has been pronounced during a public act at the Los Olmos Residence in Guadalajara in which she has been accompanied by the mayor of the city, Alberto Rojo, the Minister of Health, Jesus Fernandez Sanz, and the minister of the branch, Carolina Darias.
“I want to thank everyone for sacrifice we are making to save this epidemic “, has asserted Araceli Hidalgo.
The Minister of Health has started her speech by recalling the “shared emotion” when Araceli received the first dose. “Today we are here to finish what is started and achieve that goal of reaching one hundred percent vaccinated.”
This objective is the one that “continues to move” the Government to work “hard and hard in each of the autonomous communities” and with the collaboration of the regional governments.
The data is now approaching 77% of the population with complete regimen and 90% in those over 12 years of age with at least one dose, according to the data provided by Darias.
“But we have to continue. I want to thank Araceli, who was so brave and put her arm on December 27. You opened the way, and you are a reference and an example“, has affirmed Darias.
But, he said, “you have to keep vaccinating” despite these data and the hope generated by a vaccine that has been “a turning point.” “I make a call to continue vaccinating. We continue with the objective of one hundred percent with determination and commitment from the Government of Spain and all the autonomous communities. We will continue working.”
An example to follow
The Minister of Health of the Government of Castilla-La Mancha, Jesus Fernandez Sanz, has been in charge of premiering the event with an intervention where he wanted to thank the work of the Los Olmos Residential toilets on a day that is once again “an example to follow” with Araceli’s vaccination.
As he recalled, the vaccination of Group 7 patients -immunosuppressed or residents in centers for the elderly- is now being started, thus complying with the premise of the health authorities.
Vaccination “is going very well at the Castilla-La Mancha level and at the national level” in a country “role model” within a context in which all countries “have had the same opportunities.”
In addition, it is vaccinated in Spain without neglecting solidarity with other countries, with the donation of 7.5 million doses, as he recalled.
“We are living in a country that understands well what needs to be done for others, and that is a sign that we will always carry with us. That is why it is important to value the millions of vaccinated, which has allowed the virus to bend its arm “, Jesús Fernández Sanz has celebrated.
