Answering the question of how many coronavirus vaccines have been given in Spain from then until today, in percentage terms the figure stands at 2%, with huge differences between some autonomous communities and others.

As stated at the time by the Minister of Health, Salvador Illa, the initial plan of the Government stated that by the summer 70% of the Spanish population would be vaccinated against Covid-19. However, if we continue at the current rate, this objective would not be met until in more than six years, in late 2027.
