Numbers updated 17th April 2021.

The objective here is to give you information about Covid vaccinations in The Canaries, to show which groups residents of Lanzarote fall into, and the relative progress on Covid vaccinations for each group. We’ll update regularly.

The government has said all residents will receive the vaccination and the aim is to have at least 70% of the population of the island vaccinated by summer 2021.

Spain is following the “two jabs within three weeks protocol,” and therefore the numbers published are for people fully vaccinated with both jabs. Numbers are for The Canaries as a whole.

474,665 doses have been administered in the islands. The daily total is around 18,000 per day currently.

A total of 124,296 people have received both Covid vaccinations, meaning 8,28% of the adult population are fully immunised with both jabs.

There have been no cases so far of allergic reaction.

The process is that residents will be contacted by the local health centre at which they are registered when it’s time for their vaccination.

Lanzarote Progress

These are specific numbers that were issued for Lanzarote on 17th April 2021.

A total of 41,886 doses have been administered in Lanzarote, and so far 11.752 people have received both doses and are fully immunised. That represents 9% of the target population.
