Spain has received another 400,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine and 52,000 does of the Moderna jab, its health ministry has announced. These shots were administered last week. The country will receive a combined total of 2.3 million doses of the jabs in February.
BioNTech and Pfizer will ramp up their vaccine deliveries to the European Union from this week after improvements in production capabilities. They have also pledged to send up to 75 million further doses to the bloc in the spring.
AstraZeneca will increase its vaccine deliveries to the European Union by 30 percent, as the bloc seeks to claw back time lost rolling out the jabs. Deliveries will begin from this week after the European Commission President and the UK Prime Minister reached an agreement that factories in both regions would deliver doses to each region.
As the lockdown continues across Britain, COVID-19 vaccines have been offered to every eligible care home in England.
