3.4 million additional Pfizer vaccines to arrive in coming weeks

Written by on August 2, 2021

Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has announced the planned arrival of a further 3.4 million Pfizer vaccines this month.

In a statement issued on Friday afternoon, the PSOE leader said that the latest batch of vaccines would mean Spain would hit it’s planned target of 70% of the population being vaccinated against the coronavirus by the end of the Summer.

The announcement was made during the latest Conference of Presidents, which saw regional leaders from across the country meet to discuss the latest on the coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile the Spanish Medicines Agency has said it is yet to approve clinical trials of a coronavirus vaccine produced in Spain. In a statement issued over the weekend, the regulator said it had yet to be formally asked to approve clinical trials in humans.
