Vaccination campaign continues
The Andalucían Regional Government has announced it will begin to vaccinate- using the AstraZeneca vaccine- from next week the nearly 260,000 essential professionals under the age of 60 who have already received the first dose of this vaccine, according to the Regional Ministry of Health and Families.
This second vaccination with AstraZeneca will begin with those people who have been waiting for more than twelve weeks after the drugs use was suspended due to some isolated cases of blood clots were reported.
In the event that these people already have an appointment for a second dose because they already received it at the time of the first injection, this appointment will remain valid and they will therefore be able to attend at the time and date they have already been assigned. In the meantime, those professionals who have already missed their appointment will receive an SMS or phone call to arrange a new appointment.
