Numbers updated 15th May 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.
823,671 doses have been administered in the islands. The daily total is around 20,000 per day currently.
A total of 273,691 people have received both Covid vaccinations, meaning 14.63% of the adult population are fully immunised with both jabs.
A total of 561,132 people have received at least one dose, which is 30.00% of the target population.
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.
