As the Andalusian Minister of the Presidency, Public Administration and Interior, and the PP’s general coordinator, Elías Bendodo, stated at a press conference after the Governor’s Council, there are now two million Andalusians over the age of 18 who, “for also that. reason “, they did not take the third dose. “When we relax, the covid advances and the covid hits us,” he stated.
In this context, Bendodo put on the table three “important reasons” for taking all the doses: first, because “the virus does not end”, second, because immunity decreases with time after the vaccine or the infection and, the third and the most important reason of all: because the new variant of the virus that is coming needs more immunity to avoid infection.
The Presidency Minister stressed, however, that it is not yet possible to speak of a seventh wave of the coronavirus in Andalusia and has once again insisted on the central government on the need to promote the fourth dose among the most vulnerable groups.
