The Spanish Health Minister told a local TV channel that “What we will have is a registry, that will also be shared with our European partners … of those who have been offered it and rejected it,”

Currently, the vaccine is free and a voluntary process in Spain. 

Speaking about the registry, the Health mInister said “It is not a document to be made public and it will be done with the utmost respect for data protection.”

Yahoo News reported that in April 2018 The European Commission proposed a wide set of measures for cooperation and data-sharing around vaccinations. 

The first COVID-19 vaccine in Spain was administered on Sunday, December 27.
