Read More for details.
National vaccination stats published yesterday - up to Friday 2 April for most regions - as yet does not include the delivery of over 1 million AZ doses that arrived on Thursday 1 April. Plus there is another deliver due tomorrow of around 1.2 million Pfizer doses
Not a massive change in the figures as I think some vaccination centres closed for Thursday and Friday due to Easter holidays. I know from the experiences of a friend that this was the case with the centre in El Ejido. Around 206,000 more vaccinations - around 44,000 more people vaccinated fully.

Young woman from the Almería district, profile most affected by the covid
The rate in men of the same age is more than a hundred points lower in the last 14 days
Adolescent or young woman, 15 to 29 years old and a neighbor of the Almería Health District. This is the profile most affected in relative terms by the coronavirus in the Almeria province in the last two weeks, according to the latest data collected at the Andalusian Institute of Statistics and Cartography.
The cumulative incidence in young women of these ages reaches the highest provincial rate in the Almería district, of 352.3 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days. It is striking that this index is more than 100 points higher than that of young people of the same age group in the same district, which is 229.5. In this period, 88 positives have been confirmed in this area of the province in adolescents and women aged 15 to 29 years, and 63 in men.
It should be noted that although men from 95 to 99 years old have a rate of 392.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days in the province, in reality there has only been one positive in this period, so it is a fact which can be considered merely anecdotal.
Also in the province In the province as a whole, women between the ages of 15 and 29 are also the most affected by infections, although the rate drops to 292 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days, after they have been confirmed in this period 171 positive among young women. In the same age group, the rate among men in the province is also lower, at 229.1, (with 152 positives) but there is not as much difference as in the Almería district.
In the Levante Health District, where, although the differences are smaller, the profile with the highest relative incidence in the last two weeks is also that of young women between 15 and 29 years old. In these regions, the rate of this population group is 253.3 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days (29 cases detected), while that of men of the same age is 215.9 (27 positives in two weeks ).
Finally, the Poniente Health District is the only one in the province in which there are other profiles more affected, although also women. The highest current rate there is that of women between 80 and 84 years old, with an incidence of 328.2 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days, although only seven infections have been confirmed in this period. Next are women from 45 to 64 years old, with 322.6; and women from 30 to 44 years old, with 295.2. In the Poniente, women between the ages of 15 and 29 are the eighth group with the highest rate, with 247.1 cases per 100,000 inhabitants.
Lower incidence in men but more mortality Both in the province and in the Almería and Poniente districts, the cumulative incidence in 14 days is higher in women than in men, which does not happen in the Levant, although the rate is very similar there. In the province as a whole, the rate for men is 209.1 and 227.8 for women. In the West of 240.4 in men and 278.6 in women; and in the Levante-Alto Almanzora of 147.7 in women and 151.2 in men.
Of the 48,993 confirmed cases in Almería since the start of the pandemic, 23,614 have been in men and 25,378 in women. Although more women have been infected, the mortality rate is much higher among men, since it has been 120.3 deaths per 100,000 inhabitants, while in women it has been 83.1. In the province, a total of 743 people have died since March 2020, 447 men and 296 women.
