The Castilla y León Ministry of Health works on a self-appointment system to get vaccinated against Covid, similar to that of the Community of Madrid. The goal is for it to be up and running in August and would mainly affect the population under 40 years of age, since the majority of those older than this age are already called to vaccinate.
This was explained yesterday by the Minister of Health, Verónica Casado, at a press conference to inform about the evolution of the pandemic in Castilla y León, where she called on the population to wait a few weeks to be able to learn more details of this project that, in In part, it arises from the different profile of the population that has yet to be immunized.
In addition, he specified that the Community could reach two milestones this week: reach 1.5 million people vaccinated with one dose and one million with the full schedule. To this he added that 87.3 percent of the population aged 40 and over already have the first serum, and 55.5 percent are fully immunized.
On the other hand, after having announced the priority vaccination of Erasmus students, the details arrived about it: «Their dates of incorporation are very different, but thanks to the lists that the universities have given us, they will contact them to give them a date, “said the general director of Public Health, Carmen Pacheco, who calculated that the former could be vaccinated in mid-July. He maintained that they would try to use two-shot vaccines except for “very tight outings.” In this way, they will discard Janssen from the outset, thus reserving the fewest single doses for the “vulnerable” population.
Meanwhile, with some provinces ahead and others more lagging, lThe Community is focused on the 40-49 age group, but Casado assured that “a very great effort will also be made to cover second doses for those over 60 years old.” And it is that for the Astrazeneca guidelines, the authorities are considering reducing the time between punctures, to avoid setbacks such as those already facing Portugal and the United Kingdom, who find among their patients infected with the delta (Indian) mutation that they had received their first vaccine. In Spain it is already cited with between 10 and 12 weeks of difference to shield the user. Although it is pending discussion, “it is proposed that it may be up to between four and eight weeks,” specified Casado, without anticipating a problem due to the “time adjustment.”
Despite the fact that the alpha or British variant continues to be the most widespread (89.2% during the last week), the rest of the virus modifications are gaining ground in the Community and 50 delta cases have already been sequenced. Finally, Casado clarified that the certificate or ‘covid passport’ will also reflect people who have received a single dose for having passed the disease.
