Spain will receive just over 1.8 million doses of AstraZeneca's recently approved COVID-19 vaccine in February, Health Minister Carolina Darias told a news conference on Wednesday.

A technical committee is set to decide on Thursday whether or not to recommend the AstraZeneca shot be administered to elderly people, Darias added.

We can see why Vaccination is Spain is in such disarray. This vaccine has already been administered in UK, USA to the older population and now Spain has to have to committee to decide whether a vaccine is suited to the Spanish Seniors or not! are the old Spaniard's physiology different from those of Brits and American??? or is it that at every step of the way there has to be some pointless bureaucracy to prove that those on government deserve their fat pay cheques.
