Guide to know if you have to get vaccinated again, when and why
The number of vaccinates for whom a booster dose has been prescribed is increasing. The last group to join the list is those immunized with the Janssen single-dose. In this case, it is not a third dose but a second prick, although the effect is the same. The autonomous communities have also begun this Monday to vaccinate again those over 70 years of age, some seven million people. The scenario is very different from when the first injection was given: Spain has reached vaccination coverage far superior to the surrounding territories –although there are 4.2 million citizens who have escaped the ordinary procedure for various reasons – and the country has reserves of injections that occasionally have even expired because they are not delivered on time. We solve the doubts that have been generated around the extra dose: who should use it, when and why.
