Another user of the care home who was vaccinated last week has also tested positive for coronavirus. In this case, it is an elderly person, who is in good health.
The Galicia Health Department has confirmed that 65 per cent of the vaccines sent by the central government in the first batch have now been administered. That is 12,000 people vaccinated in the first week in 152 social health centres.
The aim is to continue this rate of vaccination and provide the coronavirus vaccine to about 12,200 people a week.
