Do you have private health insurance and are you still waiting for the vaccine?
FOR anyone with private health insurance, this is the form (below) from the Junta de Andalucia to take to your local health centre then register for the Covid vaccine. Remember to take a copy of your Passport, Padron and TIE/Residencia with you. Most of the health centres in the region are fortunate enough to have a group of volunteers that will help you fill in the form and hand it in for registration if your Spanish is not good enough.
To be included in the vaccination process, you must be registered in the BDU (user database). Some people – in general foreigners – may not be registered in the system when using private healthcare providers and have not received prior care in the Andalucian Public Health System.
In this case, it is necessary to register in the BDU in order to join the vaccination process against Covid-19, without this implying any right to other public health benefits.
To facilitate registration, it is necessary to complete this simple form and deliver it to a health centre. Click on the Junta de Andalucia link to take you directly to the site. Junta de Andalucía
