Looks like El Ejido might be completing first vaccinations for 60 years olds (and people born in 1961) sometime soon
Two friends of mine who were born in 1961 have both been called with details of appointments this week for the first AZ jab. With the second one scheduled for between 12 and 13 weeks from the first one.
Weekday stats for the area
El Ejido now has 278.2 cases (approximately 7 more than yesterday) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
Poniente Region now has 269.9 cases (approximately 1 more than yesterday) per 100,000 inhabitants based on the 14 day average (red for increase; blue for decrease)
Published a short while earlier today - vaccination stats from 20 April 2021 - with data going up to 19 April for most regions (for some reason Andalucía is only up to 18 April for vaccinations)
A big delivery of Pfizer vaccines from yesterday is in the count now - with over another 300,000 AZ ones delivered today to be added tomorrow I think
