The Department of Health will begin administering the 3rd dose in old people’s homes this Tuesday.

The Regional Ministry of Health and Families will begin administering the third dose of the vaccine against COVID-19 in old people’s homes from next Tuesday. This was announced today by the Regional Minister for Health and Families, Jesús Aguirre, during his participation in the National Congress of Hospitals in Malaga.

Aguirre stressed the need to protect this vulnerable group as soon as possible and, to this end, the nursing teams will travel to nursing homes from Tuesday next week. In Andalusia, 49,360 people are registered as institutionalised in old people’s homes.

In addition, the Andalusian Health Service is organising new walk-in vaccination days next week to continue making progress in the immunisation of the population and to facilitate the administration of both first and second doses to people over 12 years of age as well as to those people (aged 12 to 65) infected with COVID-19 more than four weeks ago and who have overcome the infection.

In these more than 150 vaccination points, messenger RNA vaccines (Moderna or Pfizer) will be administered for the first doses and the other two types of vaccines (AstraZeneca and Janssen) will also be available for those who require them. Pregnant women who have not started their vaccination schedule will also be able to attend.

In addition to the usual map of vaccination resources, mobile units will be installed at strategic points to facilitate vaccination for certain sectors such as university students. Both first and second doses will also be administered in these mobile units.
