ANA BARCELO, who heads the regional government’s Department of Health, has received her first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

As a 62-year-old, this is the vaccine currently administered to Barcelo’s age group, and she emphasised that it was safe and reliable with benefits “far outweighing” possible adverse reactions.

The Health chief lives in Sax and was vaccinated at Elda’s Pabellon Azul sports centre which has been converted into a mass vaccination centre.


“Vaccination is the beginning of the end of the pandemic,” Barcelo said.

“It is the only way out of the health crisis,” she declared.

Shortly afterwards, referring to the Costa Blanca, Generalitat president Ximo Puig, told a Cadena Ser radio interviewer that Covid passports were the answer to reactivating tourism.

“What is important is that in June the possibility will exist of travelling throughout Europe,” Puig said, while conceding that it was likely that the passports might need to be renewed annually.

Referring to the European travel, the regional president also raised the likelihood of Covid-safe travel corridors with, inevitably, special emphasis on the UK.

“Obviously, if this option were to exist it would contribute enormously our economic recovery,” Puig said.
