The region gave 157,245 vaccines from Sunday, October 24 to this Saturday, October 30, 38,761 more than those administered last week. In part, because on Friday October 15, the third dose of the Andalucia Covid vaccine regime began to be administered to the over-70s.

People are being notified by text or phone call as to when they are to receive their third booster Covid jab. The Andalucian health service has asked that people do not make appointments to their GP to book a booster jab as the system is functioning in the same way as for the initial immunisation. However, if you have any symptoms, please do not hesitate to seek medical assistance.
