Mass vaccination against covid in Gran Canaria, Tenerife, La Palma and Fuerteventura this weekend
For their part, La Gomera, El Hierro and Lanzarote continue this weekend with their vaccination system according to the schedules of previous appointments, the Ministry reported in a statement.
In Gran Canaria and Tenerife, vaccination will be aimed at people over 18 years of age, while the days on the islands of Fuerteventura and La Palma will focus on vaccinating residents over 16 years of age.
Each of the authorized sites will reserve a specific schedule and 21,712 doses of vaccines against CoviD-19 that will be administered on Saturday and Sunday to the first people who come, in that time slot, to these vaccination points and until the end of reserved stocks.
This system of vaccination without an appointment will be combined with the administration of doses by appointment according to the schedules established for the different age groups that are in the process of vaccination on each of the islands.
In Gran Canaria, on Saturday and Sunday you will be vaccinated without an appointment from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Expomeloneras and there will be 2,500 doses available each day.
On Saturday, at the Dr. Negrín University Hospital of Gran Canaria, the vaccination will take place between 9 a.m. and 4.30 p.m. and the vaccine quota is 2,500.
For its part, Pedro Hidalgo's wrestling field will vaccinate without an appointment on Sunday from 09:00 to 16:30 to a maximum of 2,500 people.
In Tenerife, those over 18 will be vaccinated without prior appointment on Saturday and Sunday from 09:00 to 19:00 both in the Santiago Martín Pavilion, whose vaccine quota will be 4,000 each day, and in the Hospital del Sur, which will have 1,000 available vaccinations up to date.
In addition, on Saturday and Sunday between 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m., vaccines will be administered without an appointment at the Fairgrounds (200 doses each day), in the Annex to the Guajara Classroom of the ULL (150 doses each day), at the University Hospital de Canarias (150 doses every day), in Magma (100 doses every day), in the Candelaria Technological Center (Ctcan) (100 doses every day) and in the Casa del Emprendedor de Los Realejos (100 doses every day).
Residents in Fuerteventura over 16 years of age who have not yet been vaccinated may go without an appointment this Saturday from 09:00 to 13:30 at the Puerto del Rosario Conference Center, accessing the building through the side entrance, in front of the Municipal Swimming Pool. At this point, 700 doses of the vaccine will be available.
Likewise, residents in any municipality of La Palma over 16 years of age who have not yet been vaccinated may receive the first dose of the vaccine without having to make an appointment by going between 09:00 and 17:00 at the Municipal Pavilion of El Paso, where the quota will be 1,000 doses.
Vaccine according to age group
At these vaccination points they must present the health card and DNI / NIE, and the corresponding vaccine will be administered according to their age group, in accordance with the provisions of the Vaccination Strategy against coronavirus.
With this vaccination action both without an appointment and by appointment, the SCS seeks to speed up the inoculation of vaccines among the younger population to then continue to advance on the established schedule and achieve the goal of having 70 percent of the target population of the islands vaccinated against covid-19 as soon as possible.
This massive appeal responds to the availability of weekly vaccines and the positive response to this walk-in vaccination system that was launched this week in certain time slots.
Likewise, it is necessary to facilitate vaccination as much as possible to the population due to the increase in the Accumulated Incidence at 7 days, which has experienced a growth of 40 percent in the last week and, in the case of the population under 40 years of age, this rate is at very high risk.
For this reason, the Ministry is working intensively to promote vaccination among the younger population, the one that has more mobility and social interactions and, therefore, more risk of contracting and transmitting the virus, putting their contacts at risk.
In this regard, the Ministry of Health thanks the Nursing teams of all the managements of all the islands for their effort and involvement in this process, contributing with their dedication to the organization, preparation, logistics and inoculation of vaccines against covid-19.
The Ministry of Health reminds that people over 18 years of age can continue to make an appointment through the usual channels: in the SCS miCitaPrevia app or on the website www.canariassevacuna.com.
In addition, those 18 years of age or older may request their prior appointment from tomorrow, Wednesday, July 21, through 012 (or 928 301 012 or 922 470 012) to attend with the date and time at their point assigned to receive your dose of the vaccine.
