The Ministry of Health of the Canary Islands Government informs that as of this weekend those people between 60 and 69 years old who have not received any doses of the vaccine against Covid-19 They can be vaccinated without an appointment at the designated points and they will be able to receive one of the messenger RNA vaccines: Pfizer or Moderna, depending on the availability of each of the vaccination points without an appointment.

This vaccination system will be available this Saturday and Sunday in Tenerife and Gran Canaria and from Monday, August 9, it will be extended to the rest of the vaccination points of the non-capital islands to promote the inoculation of doses to this age group.

Each of the vaccination points will have a maximum quota of vaccines reserved for this age group, which will be administered while stocks last. You can also make an appointment at canariassevacuna.com Either by calling 012 or through 928 301 012 or 922 470 012 or through the SCS appointment app.

Walk-in vaccinations this weekend for ages 12 and up

In addition, the Ministry organizes this Saturday and Sunday two new vaccination days without prior appointment at various mass vaccination points in Tenerife, Gran Canaria and Lanzarote aimed at the population that has already reached 12 years of age and older.

It is recalled that minors under 16 years of age must go to these vaccination points accompanied by their mother, father or legal guardian.

Each of the authorized sites will reserve a specific time during the weekend to vaccinate without an appointment in the time slots established at each vaccination point and until the end of the reserved stock.

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.

Streamline the vaccination process

With this vaccination action both without an appointment and by appointment, the SCS seeks to speed up the inoculation of vaccines among the youngest population to continue advancing in the campaign and reach 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 system of vaccination without an appointment that was launched this week in certain time slots for groups of young people over 12 years of age.
