Will Spain’s high vaccination help survive the new variant?

A month ago, Spain made great strides in the fight against Covid-19. The number of cases in the country was one of the lowest in Europe, and nearly 80 percent of the country has been vaccinated, so few eligible people can get vaccinated.

Then Omicron came along, and success gave way to uncertainty.

So far, three cases of this variant have been identified in Spain as the number of Covid-19 infections rose steadily throughout November. The emergence of the option now prompted local governments to promptly implement the new measures they were considering. Catalonia for the first time in Spain introduces a “passport” for Covid-19. In the Basque region, emergency measures are being prepared to restrict the use of bars and restaurants, which look like a return to the past.

The new moves show how fragile advances against the virus can be. But widespread acceptance of vaccinations in a country could prove crucial.

“When it comes to vaccines, in Spain there is just a broad consensus among citizens – they are following the recommendations of scientists,” said Salvador Illa, a former Spanish health minister who oversaw the country’s response during the first year of the pandemic.

As much of Europe is experiencing a wave of infections, experts attribute the vaccine’s success in Spain in part to its widely trusted public health system, which has spearheaded the effort. Politicians also played a big role, starting with fanfare to take doses and avoiding politicized debates about the vaccine. Most Spaniards followed the advice of their health leaders when it came to vaccines, masks and other precautions.
