Andalusia begins to vaccinate schoolchildren between 12 and 16 years old before the
Andalusia has started vaccination appointments for schoolchildren aged 12 to 16.
The Andalusian vice-president, Juan Marín, announced that the objective of the postponement of the appointments is “to resume classes on September 15 with everyone vaccinated and minimizing the risk of contagion”.
“Andalusia will have collective immunity by the beginning of September because at the end of August all young people between the ages of 12 and 16 will be vaccinated,” said the vice-president confidently.
“Despite the fact that there are fewer vaccines, the vaccination rate, especially in the Diana population, now that they are the youngest between 16 and 29 years old, is done quite quickly because everything that comes in is used” , he said, statements he made to journalists during his visit to Jerez de la Frontera for the signing of an agreement for the international dissemination of Andalusian equestrian art.
“The safest way is to resume classes on September 15 with everyone vaccinated and to minimize the risk of contagion,” he said.
Marín also explained that workers in nursing homes “must have CRP or have the vaccine in place (everyone is fully immunized) because it is necessary to protect the elderly”.
Asked about the need for a possible third dose of the Pfizer vaccine, Marín explained that “we do not know what will happen and it is still pending, in Spain we will wait for the WHO and the European Agency drugs indicate whether we should do it or not and, even if we had to do it, it would be next year. “
