BENIDORM’S mayor, Toni Perez, received his first dose of anti-Covid vaccine last week.
Like everybody else, he received a text message with the date and time when he should arrive for his jabs at the Pilota Court ordinarily used for the Valencian ballgame in the Palau d’Esports l’Illa sports complex.
“Not only can we save our own lives with the vaccine, but we are also protecting others,” Perez wrote on his social media account minutes after receiving the first Pfizer injection just one day after his 53rd birthday.
“After recently receiving my first dose, I’m encouraging you all to do the same when the time comes.”
Perez also drew attention to the health workers involved in the vaccination campaign and the nurse who gave him the first jab.
“A million thanks to all the nurses at the ‘Vaccine-drome’ and especially to Gema Quiles Gamez for her professionality and kindness (I didn’t even notice it),” the mayor declared.
