The PSOE spokesperson in the Community of Madrid, Hana Jalloul, charged this Wednesday morning against Isabel Diaz Ayuso for the “very worrying delays” in vaccination. The president has replied to the socialist spokesperson with a letter reminding her that “Madrid has administered 92.5% of the vaccines and its stock is less than that of Catalonia.”
The socialist Hana Jalloul jumped on the networks to affirm that she had asked Ayuso to hold a meeting “urgently.” The reason: “The news about the delays in the vaccination process.” “Very worrying” news. Because, according to the socialist, you cannot “continue like this.” And Díaz Ayuso has answered the Madrid leader of the PSOE.
In the first place, he points out that he has received “the letter in which he shows his concern about the vaccination process in the Community of Madrid”. And he clarifies: “It surprises me because we are one of the communities that is recording the best data, thanks to the 50 vaccination points that we have arranged, in public and private centers -which if we add the Health centers exceed 200- with a rhythm of almost 100,000 doses administered every day”.
The Madrid president clarifies the situation as of today: “The Community of Madrid has received, on July 20, 7,651,935 doses and has managed 7.079.452, therefore, 92.5% of those received. Regarding the stock that the Community of Madrid has, say that it is 572,483 doses. A figure lower than the one that Catalonia had yesterday and similar to that of Andalusia, according to the latest data published by the Ministry of Health ”.
In detail, “the stock of the Community of Madrid is distributed as follows: 300,256 doses are from Pfizer for second doses this week and next. 102,480 are from Moderna and 144,491 are from Janssen. For second doses and self-appointment, taking into account that Moderna can only be administered to those over 18 years of age and Janssen to those over 40 years of age. And 25,256 are from AstraZeneca for second doses over 60 ”.
Therefore, Ayuso denies any problem in vaccination in Madrid, but does return a demand to the socialist: “The Community of Madrid needs more vaccines both to continue administering first doses and to complete second doses that we hope will arrive in the coming weeks.” And Ayuso remarks: “That is why, yesterday, we requested in the Interterritorial Council to the Ministry of Health to reduce the age of administration of the Janssen vaccine so that minors can access it.”
Isabel Díaz Ayuso also highlights the false accusation from Hana Jalloul regarding the second pending doses from Pfizer: “The doses are guaranteed and you will receive them within the deadline set in the SmPC; always trying to get closer to 21 than 28 days. Right now, the 57.7% of the target population of the Community has the complete guideline; and 76.5% have at least one dose of the vaccine. Both percentages are above the national average ”.
The letter closes with a new beating: “I think it is convenient to inform you that the Accumulated Incidence of the Community of Madrid is 567 and that the national average is 622. On the other hand, I cannot help but comment that it surprises me that from the PSOE offer us your help since there are 5 autonomous communities governed by your party with a Cumulative Incidence higher than that of our region (Navarra, Aragon, Asturias, Balearic Islands and Cantabria) and another four (Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, La Rioja and Valencian Community) with a lower percentage of vaccination.
Given his recent political ties to the government, perhaps he could be of great help to us when it comes to lifting the veto on the AstraZeneca vaccine for those under 60 years of age, with which we could get a million more vaccines. But the decision of the Ministry of Health without technical endorsement, plus the lack of vaccines of the rest, prevents us from achieving a higher rate of vaccination ”.
And Ayuso concludes with a message: “I send your letter and my response to the Ministry of Health, where they will attend the explanations that you require either by mail, or in a meeting. For my part, to talk about this matter and any general policy, it is my intention to hold individual meetings with the parliamentary groups of the Madrid Assembly in the month of September, for which I will convene in the near future ”.
