Marbella aims for 10,000 vaccinations per week

The vaccination campaign has moved up a level as Marbella Town Hall has established Covid vaccination centres in Marbella and San Pedro Alcántara that will allow for the immunisation of more than 10,000 people a week.

Marbella Mayor, Ángeles Muñoz; Provincial Delegate of Health, Carlos Bautista, and the Director of the Sanitary District of the Costa del Sol, Aurora López, visited one of the facilities located in Palacio de Congresos, in which six clinics have been established, In total 3,500 square metress have been set aside in Marbella and another 2,500 square metres in the Carpa Municipal San Pedro Alcántara

“These infrastructures will allow us to vaccinate more than 10,000 people a week… when the doses promised by the Ministry of Health arrive” commented Muñoz.

“It is true that the city’s health centres have become too small to face the challenge of large-scale vaccination… hence we have opted for these two important public infrastructures,” said Muñoz who als stressed that “Marbella is turning into a safe municipality and which will prioritise the vaccination of the largest number of the population in the shortest time possible.”

“The objective is to immunise 500,000 people a week so that, by the beginning of summer, we have an important herd immunity in Andalusia”, Bautista added, although he noted that “our guard should not be lowered, even with the vaccines, and we should maintain the hygienic and sanitary measures recommended for the pandemic ”.
