The Department of Universal Health and Public Health continues with the vaccination campaign against COVID-19 across the Comunidad Valenciana this week.

The second dose of vaccine will be administered in residences to people who were vaccinated with the first dose during the week beginning February 15th. Likewise, in these same centres, people who could not be vaccinated previously, either due to active infection or due to new admissions, will be vaccinated with the first dose. All of them will be administered with the Pfizer vaccine.

Another group in which vaccination continues this week are people from the functional diversity day centres, for whom 4,800 doses of Pfizer are planned this week.

As for the professionals of the health system, those who received the first dose during the week beginning February 15th and those who could not be vaccinated at that time will be vaccinated this week.

In addition, 18,500 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine have been allocated this week for vaccination of non-professional caregivers. In addition, this vaccine will also be administered to day centre professionals.

Some 35,000 doses of Pfizer are also planned to continue with the vaccination of people over 80 years of age and highly dependent, in addition to about 2,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine.

Finally, second doses of the Moderna vaccine will continue to be administered to the staff of public hospitals and the Comunidad Valenciana Transfusion Centre.
