Pfizer, along with its partner company BioNTech successfully developed a vaccine that is proved to be 90% effective against the novel Coronavirus. Since the world is fighting the deadly pandemic for almost a year now, the development of a 50% effective dose would have been a blessing as well. Luckily, we got a 90% effective dose. The world will be desperately waiting for the vaccine doses to be delivered to them as soon as possible, and without any surprise, there are already pre-orders for millions of doses from countries around the globe.
However, Spain's hope to receive the vaccine, first of all, is extremely high because that is what the health minister stated on Tuesday while negotiating a deal with the European Union. The country is likely to get 20 million doses initially, which are more than enough to immunize around 10 million people. Spain's health minister, Salvador Illa, said that the vaccine shots for Covid-19 would be free of cost for the people. Further, he added that by April-May, most of the people in Spain would be immunized against the disease. According to Pfizer, the vaccine is needed to be stored somewhere deep-frozen in order to stay effective.
No wonder Spain has been devastated by the disease in terms of everything, including life, economy, business, and education. Around 39,756 people in Spain alone have lost their battle against the deadly disease.
To prioritize who should first get the vaccination done in Spain, the country's regional and central governments will have a meeting soon to make a final decision as soon as possible. The vaccine doses will be delivered to countries, including Spain, by the start of 2021.
