Tiny number of people refuse covid vaccine

Written by on February 25, 2021

Just over 2% of those offered the coronavirus vaccine in Spain have refused it, according to data released yesterday by the Ministry of Health.

In a news conference, senior health official Silvia Calzon said that the volume of those who wished to receive the jab showed that the population had “confidence” in the vaccines.

As of Wednesday, just over 45,000 had refused innoculation, whilst 2.1 million had received the injection.

The news came as the incidence rate for the virus fell to 206 cases per 100,000 people – down from nearly 900 at the end of January.
