Friday 2nd July 2021 – XÀBIA AL DÍA with Mike Smith
The Ministry of Universal Health and Public Health in the Comunidad Valenciana has launched an Agenda Vacacional on their website so that citizens of the region can adapt their vaccination against COVID-19 to their summer holidays.
Regional health secretary Ana Barceló explained that “the purpose is to make it easier for citizens to enjoy their holidays and to vaccinate them when they are available“.
Thus, on the website LINK HERE, those aged between 18 and 39 years old who are waiting for an appointment for their first dose can use an online in which they can indicate when they will be unavailable to receive the vaccine due to their holidays. This will mean that the call to be vaccinated will be postponed until such time as the person is available, always respecting the order of vaccination by age groups being followed by the Comunidad Valenciana. In addition, those in this age group who are expected to be called over the summer will also receive an SMS with the web link.
Barceló explained that “this measure has been launched by Health in order to efficiently plan the vaccination process during this summer, and thus maintain the good pace of immunization in the Comunidad Valenciana“.
It should be noted that this measure is aimed as those people who are waiting to receive the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine; those who are waiting to receive their second dose already have a prior appointment which was made at the time they receive the call for the initial jab.
Thus, the requirements to be able to postpone your vaccination due to holidays are: be between 18 and 39 years of age (born between 1982 and 2003 inclusive), not to have receive any dose of vaccine against COVID-19, and not to have any scheduled appointment for vaccination.
