The figure, on the other hand, falls in the range of 40 to 49 years: 85% of the people that make up this group are immunized, only 72% of those from 30 to 39 and 70% of those from 20 to 29 Adolescents between 12 and 19 are still in the full stage of vaccination, but the first doses already alert young people over 20 years of age to a possible surprise in the numbers.

Vaccines about to expire
The slowdown in the vaccination rate in recent weeks has led some communities to admit to being at the limit of the expiration of the serums.
Catalonia has already admitted that the region accumulates doses about to expire, and even already expired, although they refuse to provide an exact number. The Ministry of Health has explained to laSexta that it is a failure of the supply logistics, and they have admitted that they expected a greater influx in the vaccination centers at the beginning of September. A figure that, finally, has been “lower than expected”.
In this sense, they have urged the Catalan population to be vaccinated in order to release these batches. A problem that could spread to other communities, since the vaccination rate has slowed down in most of them.
