In the latest tally of booster doses released this week, it was revealed that a total of 2,128,463 people have already received a booster dose of the coronavirus vaccine in the Valencian Community.

By province, there are 772,647 people in Alicante, 276,800 in Castellón and 1,079,016 in Valencia, according to sources from the Department of Health.

These extra doses, part of the national vaccination strategy, are being offered to all people of legal age, in an orderly manner by age cohorts and prioritising people with risk conditions and those who have received the initial vaccination schedule for a longer time.

By groups, the Valencian Community has already administered additional doses to 47,016 people with a pathology at risk for Covid; 26,759 people living in residences; 181,911 people who once received the Janssen monodose; 146,633 socio-health professionals; 399,450 people who were vaccinated with AstraZeneca; 658,636 people aged 70 and over; 494,828 people aged 60 to 69; 445,908 people from 50 to 59 years old and 248,745 people from 40 to 49 years old.

The department of health clarifies that the sum of the figures disaggregated by groups is higher than the absolute value of people with an extra dose in the Valencian Community because there is duplicate accounting for those who end up in more than one group.

In addition, almost a dozen health departments, especially areas with low population density or a small young population, have already started vaccinating people between the ages of 39 and 30.
