After this past Tuesday, the Public Health Commission Diese Green Light to the administration of a reinforcement dose of the VACCO-19 vaccine to those over 70 years of October 25, and those over 65 when they have He turned six months from the complete guideline, the communities begin to finalize their different vaccination strategies to carry out this new milestone. Most regions have already finished practically to inoculate this third dose in the elderly residences, there is something more lagging behind the group of immunosuppressed people.
Both Asturias and Castilla y León refer that the process of vaccination of the third dose is being given without any problem. And this is demonstrated by the new data that provides the Ministry of Health in its daily immunization report, where it now details how many people have received an additional dose against the sera against the COVID-19.
This update is very recent, it was given on Thursday for the first time, remaining in a certain way eclipsed by the return at low risk of Spain after more than a year. But this fact is so novel that some communities, as Baleares, are still finalizing the technological modifications necessary to automate the sending of that data to the ministry and right now it appears as if they had not vaccinated anyone with the third dose.
Andalusia Yes he has reported that a total of 43,990 team registered in his territory have already received the additional dose, which agrees with what his Health and Families counselor, Jesús Aguirre Muñoz, transferred at a press conference: "In more residences 90% of the doses are already set, there are only, for example, institutions where there were positive and could not be vaccinated when it was touched. As for the group of immunosuppressed, the rate is around 75-80%. " Likewise, Cantabria and Canarias are in a situation very similar to that described by the Andalusian Director, since from the Cantabria Health Communication Cabinet they explain that they are about to end the Administration of the additional dose in residences and, now, Through the network of public hospitals, it will be vaccinated to other groups that need a reinforcement dose.
So what are the plans of the different regions to initiate vaccination of reinforcement to people born from 1951 and who have completed their vaccine guideline at least six months ago? The majority aims to accompany this campaign with the annual and usual influenza, although some are still studying the optimal strategy with its technicians and experts.
In this last situation there is Asturias and La Rioja, also still defining the definitive operation. However, the Balearic archipelago already has a fully elaborated strategy: from November 4 to 21, the combined vaccination against influenza will be carried out and the third anticovid dose for people over 70 years, and from November 22 to December 17 will only be launched the flu vaccination strategy.
In the case of Andalusia, whose influenza campaign begins next Thursday, October 14, it is also scheduled to announce the strategy of the third dose from mid-week, but from its communication cabinet it is indicated that it goes To coincide with the flu campaign, and that will be vaccinated to the population over 70 years at a time with the two vaccines.
For its part, the Community of Madrid, despite being obliged to follow the vaccination strategy agreed upon by the Public Health Commission and established by the Central Government, has expressed its disagreement with this decision, since it defends that the administration of the Third Dosage of Vaccine against Covid-19 to those over 70 is not urgent and progress that it will prioritize the vaccination campaign against the flu, which expects to start during the last week of October, although it works to reorganize it to adapt the joint application . The same situation is given with the Autonomous Community of Galicia, which also voted against the decision.Updated Date: 09 October 2021, 19:45
