Andalusia increases second dose of AstraZeneca to ten weeks
ANDALUSIA decided to bring forward the second dose of AstraZeneca at 10 weeks after the first vaccine, both in people over and under 60 years of age. People who already had an appointment assigned to complete the immunization schedule will receive an SMS or a call to change it, starting the appointment change for people over 60 and continuing with younger ones. The Department of Health and Families made the decision due to the uncontrolled expansion of the Delta variant of Covid-19 in the UK, which is already producing community transmission in other autonomies.
As reported by Information about Andalusia, indicated by the ministry in a press release, Andalusia continues to gradually lower the coronavirus vaccination cup for those under 40 this week with the opening of self-meeting agendas for people born from 1981 to 1985. to availability of doses and to the programming carried out by the districts and health areas themselves, which also call or summon the population awaiting vaccination by SMS. Opening the agendas by age groups is a way of streamlining the vaccination process which is proving to give good results, so patience and understanding are required from the population of these ages.
The appointment request for the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine can be made directly on the Andalusian Health Service (SAS) website via ClicSalud + (www.lajunta.es), via the mobile application and the Salud Responde phone number (955 545 060) and also in your health center, preferably by telephone. Regarding the appointment for the administration of the second dose, it cannot be requested by these routes and it will be provided in most cases at the time of vaccination or will be communicated later by your health center.
