British Embassy Informs

The following was published by the British Embassy in Madrid concerning vaccinations for those who are not included within the Spanish National Health System.

SPN Vaccine Coronavirus“We know that some of you are concerned about how you will be able to get the Covid-19 vaccine in Spain – particularly those of you who don’t receive state healthcare.

The Spanish government has been very clear that they will provide the vaccine to everyone in Spain as a matter of public health, regardless of nationality or how you access healthcare in Spain.

If you are already registered for state healthcare you will be contacted by your regional health service to make an appointment when it is your turn to be vaccinated.

Because Spain operates its health system regionally, the way people access the vaccine will differ depending on where you live.

We have received the following information from the Spanish regional healthcare authorities for those who are not registered for state healthcare and we continue to seek information for all regions. Please be aware that this is information from the Spanish authorities and is subject to change.

Andalucíá: You can register for the vaccine here: More information is available at:

Balearic Islands: To register for the vaccine, please call 971 211 999. For more information see:

Cataluña: If you are already registered on the padrón, you can apply online here:…/programes-interes…/

Murcía: You can register online for the vaccine here:… or call: 900121212

Valencia Region (Comunidad Valenciana): You will need to go to your local health centre to register. You will be given a provisional health card to cover the vaccination and any other public health needs.
The Spanish authorities are asking insurance companies to coordinate with regional health services in order to provide vaccines to their customers.

UK nationals living in Spain with private insurance, who do not live in the areas listed in this post, can contact their local health centre or private insurance company for more information.

The full Spanish government vaccination strategy is available here:

    If not registered with the local doctor It is important to have the Empadramiento paper which you get quickly from local Civic center ..your residencia..the registration form which you can get on line and your passport. I went with that today and they have already called my husbamd for his Vaccination tomorrow!

    Register in the database of users for Covid vaccinations. Foreigners and Spaniards who have private insurance.

    The not mutualists refers to some people who have a hybrid kind of healthcare (autonomos etc.)

    Basically if you are not entitled to use the public healthcare system and have private healthcare then fill these forms and bring them to the healthcentre with your passport.

    Based on what I have heard from others I would also recommend you bring a proof of address and your card from the health insurance company
