The Xunta proposes to the Government to redistribute the surplus vaccines of Madrid among the rest of the communities

The government of Alberto Núñez Feijóo wants the vaccines that Isabel Díaz Ayuso has stored in a warehouse. The vice president of the Xunta, Alfonso Rueda, has proposed this Thursday the possibility of undertaking a redistribution that benefits the most effective communities in the distribution of the drug.

The number two of Feijóo, Alfonso Rueda, has appealed to the central government to manage a possible reorganization of the stocks: “The only responsibility that the central government has in this regard is to guarantee the supply of vaccines to the autonomous communities. Therefore, whoever has this supply capacity, make the best distribution. ”

Madrid is at the bottom of the ranking in terms of vaccination rate. It has only administered 85.6% of the 7.5 million doses it has received, which means that it has inoculated 6.4 million and keeps 1.15 million from Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Jannsen in storage. The Community chaired by Ayuso focuses on Pfizer and Moderna vaccines. It asks the Government for more injections of these brands while it has more than half a million stored. This same Thursday, Madrid has suspended the summons for the first dose of Pfizer at all vaccination points in the region despite acknowledging that it has not administered 380,000 doses of this brand and ensures that they are reserved for first doses.

Meanwhile, Feijóo’s team insists on its ability to administer all the doses that arrive. More than 62.6 percent of the target population to be vaccinated against Covid-19 in Galicia already has the complete guideline, at the end of the process 1,538,171 people, 22,379 more than the previous day.

The community led by Alberto Núñez Feijóo has long defended the exchange of resources between autonomous communities. At the end of March 2020, Galicia sent respiratory assistance units when Madrid registered the highest increase in infections and its ICUs were approaching collapse. Then, Núñez Feijóo described the decision as an act of solidarity. Now, a similar gesture is being requested from the administration that stores tens of thousands of unadministered vaccines in its warehouses.
