Weekly deliveries of Pfizer-BioNTech corona vaccines have been delayed by one day for eight European countries.
Spanish Health Minister Salvador Illa said during a press conference on Monday that the delivery will arrive on Tuesday instead of Monday.
All EU countries have already received vaccinations from the pharmaceutical company last week, which means that the vaccination program’s start is not in danger.
According to Illa, the doses that arrive on Tuesday can also be used immediately.
Pfizer / BioNTech provides new doses of vaccinations every week. Spain receives 350,000 doses every week. The drug is transported from Puurs in Belgium through Europe.
During his press conference, Illa also said that he expects 70 percent of the Spanish population to be vaccinated against the coronavirus by August.
