Our Health District (Costa Tropical-Alpujarra) has commenced vaccinating those between the ages of 55 and 65 starting on the 15th of April.
They will start with those born in 1956, without any need of belonging to a front-line activity – you just need to be 65-years old to receive your AstraZeneca jab.
In other provinces they will start with the same age group once they have processed those working in essencial activities, such as teachers and police forces.
This comes about after the Ministry of Health has finally authorised AstraZeneca for this age group; something that the Regional Government of Andalucía has been requesting since this vaccine became available.
Meanwhile, as far as Pfizer and Moderna vaccines go, they’re still working their way through those of 80 or above, carers, nurse & doctors.
Andalucía received 99,450 Pfizer doses on Monday, 56.800 Moderna doses and 20,000 AstraZeneca ones.
