End July Jab Target Date

The province of Granada is looking at the end of July to complete its jab programme within all of its health districts, obtaining 70% herd immunity.

GRA FermasaThe accelerated pace of vaccination roll out in Andalucía and the new accords with the Pfizer/BioNTech starting next week have changed the July target date from a possibility to a an elevated probability.

It remains within the ‘probability’ bracket because nobody knows what new tricks the virus may have up its sleeve – India comes to mind.

Around mid month (May) the quantity of available doses in Andalucía is set to double and by June this quantity will grow again. Having said that, whilst Pfizer supplies have grown, AstraZeneca availability has diminished, otherwise we would be looking at the beginning of summer instead of at the doors of August.

Since the beginning of last month, on average, 40,000 doses a week have been administered in the province. The Granada/Metropolitan health district has been using Fermasa (exhibition hall) as a drive-in location for mass vaccinations but they are now looking at incorporating the Nuevo Los Cármenes football stadium and the Coliseo in Atarfe for the same purpose.

According to vaccination record, those in the 80s+ group have all received their two doses and the 70s group will finish next week the first jabs, most of which have also had the second jab.

The main push over the next two weeks will be to concentrate of those aged between 65 and 75, whilst at the same time conclude the first jab for the 60 to 65.

Editorial note: don’t forget, make sure that your local medical centre or doctors surgery (small villages) have your contact details.

    Vaccine certs are available on line. Via the link below you can download your vaccine certificate once you are fully vaccinated. You will need a digital certificate or Clave PIN for government services to access the certificate.

    My mistake, Sandra, the link was for downloading a form to apply for being included within the jab roll out if you only had private insurance.

    You don’t need to download anything; you just need to go round to your local medical centre with your ID to obtain a certificate once you have received the second dose.

    Does anyone know if we get some sort of paperwork confirming that we have had the two vaccinations.
    My second jab is due 12th May and no one seems to know the answer.
