Spain, with 57.61%, is the country with the most people vaccinated with a complete schedule against the coronavirus in the European Union, in addition to the United Kingdom and those that make up the European Free Trade Association (EFTA), according to data from the University British Oxford. The report was presented this Tuesday by the BIOCOMSC research group of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia.
With these data, Spain, with 47.3 million inhabitants, is ahead of Belgium, with 57.21%, and even the United Kingdom (56.49%) and Germany (52.58%).
However, we do not lead the vaccines that are injected daily, since Italy, with 477,000, and Germany, with 409,000, surpass the 391,000 in Spain, according to the same sources.
Nor do we top the data for partially vaccinated people, with 10.51%, since other countries, such as Norway (32.5%), Sweden (21.9%), the Netherlands (18.6%) and Denmark (17 , 4%) have this more advanced segment, although they have much less population than Spain.
Bulgaria and Romania are the ‘lanterns’ of vaccination against covid-19 in Europe, with 14.4% and 25.2% of its population vaccinated with the full schedule, while Hungary claims to have 56.3% of its inhabitants fully vaccinated and only 1.87% partially.
BIOCOMSC has recalled that the vaccine coverage data “in the face of winter are key to establish the type of sociability that can be had without registering strong growth in cases and in the pressure of care.”
