Numbers updated 1st August 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. Scroll to the bottom of the page for Lanzarote specific numbers.

2,528,968 doses have been administered in the islands. The daily total is over 30,000 currently.

A total of 1,197,089 people have received both Covid vaccinations, meaning 61.10% of the population aged 12 years and over are fully immunised with both jabs.

A total of 1,491,034 people have received at least one dose, which is 77.44% of the population.

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