MADRID, July 23 — Spain’s vaccine rollout has begun to slow the spread of Covid-19 infections and the country is getting ready for a booster third dose, Health Minister Carolina Darias said today.

“We are starting to see a slowdown of the rise (in cases),” Darias said in an interview with radio station Onda Cero.

Spain had registered a major growth in the number of diagnosed cases per 100,000 people over the past few weeks. The number jumped five-fold between mid-June and mid-July.

The vaccination rollout has gathered speed and Spain now has the third-highest Covid-19 vaccination rate in the world, with 64 per cent of its population having had one or two doses, setting it behind only Canada and the United Kingdom.

Darias reaffirmed that the target was for 70 per cent of the population to be vaccinated by late August. “We’ll need to keep vaccinating until we reach 100 per cent or be close to it,” she said.

A third dose will then be offered to Spaniards, she said. “What we still have to determine is when.” — Reuters
