    Hi, Malcolm: go to the health centre where you received your jabs – they will give you a certificate there 😉

    Hi Martin,

    Anyone know how to get an online Covid Certificate of Vaccination from Clic Salud without a “numero de tarjeta sanitaria” ?
    I followed the British Embassy Advice for private healthcare registration with the local Health Centre for the jab only. I now have had both jabs and need a certificate to travel. However to download a certificate, you need a “numero de tarjeta sanitaria” which is not provided by this “jab only” service. Any ideas??

    Bueno. My Partner and I really enjoy the seafront at La Guardia.

    Last summer there were works going on in the small car park area by the sea front. Now we find that there is only one designated disabled parking bay. Where there were two before. Very odd and not good for those with any disability.

    This will of course affect those wishing to visit for a meal nearby, Such a shame a decision taken by non-disabled dummy.

    Are toilets provided for people on the beaches ?

    Elizabeth: Yes, you can obtain a certificate after your second jab, which you can request at your local medical centre. It can also be done online, but you will need an electronic signature.

    Is there a vaccine certificate available after you have had both jabs? How and where do you get it?

    Hello Robert

    The ship in La Herradura Bay belongs to the State Tax Administration Agency. It is a customs surveillance vessel

    Do you think it is to remind people to pay their taxes?

    Andrea: Have you tried an Ouija Board?

    Just joking of course – it’s the Gazette, after all 😉 Now for something more helpful:

    Have you checked with your neighbours to see if they have the same problem? Silly question but one that has to be ruled out.

    You say Cotobro but is the house you’re in part of Urbanización Cotobro, which is managed by Asinex, I believe. That won’t be of much help this time round, given the time, but if you find yourself in this situation again, the staff there speak English, French and German 958 631 855.

    If there has been a burst pipe then they will working on it until it is fixed so expect you’re water back on later this evening. Their website says that they have no scheduled maintenance works that requires turning the supply off anywhere, so it is more than likely a fault.

    Sorry that we couldn’t be of more help.

    aguas y servicios mystery
    As I am the new kid on the block here in Almuñécar-Cotobro I would like to ask for some advice from those with more experience: We have no water since six hours and have had no pre- nor any information since by aguas y servicios. There is nothing on their website, when I call the 24 hours emergency number nobody picks up.

    What is one supposed to do in order to obtain information?

    Sandra: Yes there is. The decision is made on a Thursday and comes into effect on a Friday. At this very moment there is a meeting going on in Madrid to decide what Easter restrictions there will be. We’re holding onto the 16.00h article to include the announcement made afterwards.

    Trevor…some news about vaccinations. There was an article in El Pais where the British embassy said it was being co ordinated via health insurance companies. I contacted the Granada Sur health district on behalf of my guiri wife and after 3 weeks they came back and told me exactly the same. Both sources said that you should contact your health insurer and they will get you put on the vaccine list.

    We have received information that we could register with the local medical centre for the COVID vaccination. We have S1 status but still not registered. The information around states that everyone regardless of status is entitled to be vaccinated.
    Unfortunately nobody seems to have told the Salobreña medical centre. We spoke to two people separately in the centre today and explained we have Residencia, Padron & our S1 form. Neither wanted to listen. Both stated categorically that without the Andalusian medical card nobody would be vaccinated. They were not interested if the S1 submission had been made or not. I went through the government decree from December and all the subsequent statements I could remember. The response was the same ‘No tarjeta, no vacuna’.

    Hi, I am a keen cyclist and I am researching stay/cycle providers in the Costa Tropical area for a post pandemic trip. Can any of your readers recommend any provider? Many thanks.
