Spanish official resigns on vaccination rules breach

Chief of the Spanish Defense Staff Miguel Angel Villarroya resigned on Saturday amid the allegations he and several other officials broke the rules of mass vaccination and received shots of the jab before priority groups.

The statement read Villaroya "never intended to take advantage of unjustifiable privileges" and "took decisions which he thought to be correct" but "damaged the public image of the Armed Forces" instead.

Spain began inoculating its population against COVID-19 on December 27.
