More than 17,000 people from Almería immunized in just one week

More than 68,000 have already completed the guidelines after Janssen's arrival

The vaccination plan of the Junta de Andalucía advances in the province of Almería, where in the last seven days it has exceeded 17,000 immunized and there are already 68,390 Almerians who have the necessary doses to have immunity against the coronavirus.

This is how it is collected this Sunday by the epidemiological part of the province of Almería, in which, as is usual on Sundays, there are no positives or deaths in the last 24 hours, but the Ministry of Health does facilitate hospital pressure, which today presents an improvement compared to the day before after the departure of eight admitted, one of them who was in ICU. Thus, today there are 111 hospitalized, compared to 119 yesterday, and 42 who are in Intensive Care, one less than the day before.

Back to the statistics of vaccinated, the province has already added 228,240 doses administered since the beginning of the vaccination, on December 28, 2020. The distribution of these more than 200,000 doses has so far left 161,930 people with at least one doses until this Saturday, May 1.

Likewise, there are already 68,390 who have completed the vaccination after having been immunized in the last seven days to 17,439, an average of 2,500 each day and which is a direct consequence of the acceleration of the vaccination rate and the arrival of the vaccine from Janssen, with which a single dose is enough to immunize the person.

In this sense, it is worth noting the acceleration that the province has hit since the arrival of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, on April 23, because if in this last week almost 17,500 people from Almería have been immunized, an average of 2,491 per day In the previous two weeks, the rate of vaccinated was slightly less than 700 each day.

For its part, throughout the autonomous community of Andalusia 2,924,735 doses have been administered so far, which leaves 2,053,970 Andalusians with at least one dose, 24.26% of the general population, and 907,201 immunized, the 10.71% and still far from the desired 70% for the summer.
