Spain should achieve herd immunity from COVID-19 by the end of summer 2021 if enough people are vaccinated by then, the health minister said. Salvador Illa said a vaccination programme will start in January and by the end of the summer, more than two-thirds of the population of 47 million should be vaccinated.
Illa cautioned Spaniards against dropping their guard during the Christmas period. Spain has been one of the worst-hit countries in Europe by coronavirus.
