Spanish PM Announcies a Jump in the Number of COVID-19 Vaccines Available

MADRID — Spain’s prime minister is announcing a jump in the number of COVID-19 vaccines available in his country, ensuring that the national target for herd immunity of 33 million inoculated people can be reached by mid-August.

Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez said Thursday that Spain will receive 13 million doses from Pfizer next month. That allows authorities to ramp up their vaccination campaign to 2.7 million people a week from 1.7 million.

Sánchez said Spain has 97 days to hit its target “and overcome the pandemic we’ve lived and suffered through for more than 12 months.”
