The Ministry of Health of the Government of the Canary Islands informs that as of today, Friday, April 16, 2021, people born between 1952 and 1955 who have not been summoned to be vaccinated against COVID-19 They can call 012 or 928 301 012 0 922 470 012 to make an appointment, as is usually done for the flu vaccination. This citation system with which the Canary Islands Health Service aims to speed up the process of inoculation of the vaccine between the target population between 66 and 69 years, is added to the sending of sms and calls that are made as a regular protocol of notification to the target population.
Who should not call
People who are not between 66 and 69 years old and those who already have an appointment to be vaccinated do not have to call 012 since they are already scheduled by sms or through a phone call by the SCS.
Opening of lines for the following age groups
The objective is to vaccinate as soon as possible the group of 60 to 69 years who receive the drug in the massive vaccination points with the capacity to vaccinate more than 1,000 people a day in most of each of them. For this, the system of requesting an appointment by users for the age group of 66 to 69 years is started and as the inoculation progresses in this age group, the opening of lines for another age group will be communicated.
The arrival of more vaccines in the last week and the new massive vaccination points launched between yesterday and today will make it possible to increase the percentage of the population to be vaccinated and to continue advancing in the vaccination calendar. Thus, in Gran Canaria, the population over 60 years of age may be summoned to vaccinate in any of the two hospitals of the Canary Health Service (Insular and Dr. Negrín), in the Primary Care Management of Gran Canaria, in Canalejas or in Expomeloneras or in Infecar. In addition, the population of Artenara and La Aldea de San Nicolás can be vaccinated in health centers in their area.
Likewise, in Tenerife As of today, the mass vaccination points of the Annex to the Guajara Lecture Hall of the ULL, the Ctcan and the Garachico Clinic are available, in addition to those already existing in the HUC, in the Ntra. Sra. de Candelaria, in the Hospital del Sur, in the Primary Care Management and in the Casa del Emprendedor Fairgrounds, in Los Realejos.
30,000 doses per day
In total, the new vaccination points, together with those in health centers, for people over 70 years of age, will offer a vaccination capacity of 30,000 doses per day as long as the fluid supply of vaccines continues.
