Spain for its part, takes the step of vaccination of 5-11 year olds, following the advice of the European health regulator … The children will therefore receive their first injection on December 13.. Spain, but also Portugal, thus join Germany, Italy or the Czech Republic in the train of the vaccination of the youngest.
