Spain to give Pfizer jab as 2nd dose after AZ vaccine

Tuesday, 18. May 2021 20:46

The Spanish Health Ministry proposed on Tuesday that all people younger than 60 who have received the first dose of AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine should receive the Pfizer/BioNTech jab as a second dose.

The statement, reported by El Pais, comes hours after the country's Carlos III Health Institute released preliminary results saying that combining the two vaccines is safe and effective.

Spain has inoculated more than 22.3 million people so far, while around 33% of its population received at least one vaccine dose.
