Just read on the TalkQuesada forum that a colleague who is 64 with no underlying medical condition, taking no medication and she has been scheduled for her first vaccine on  6 April in Torrevieja and an appt. for her follow up already given to her. 

I know of residents in Catral over 60 and 70 with lung and heart conditions and having monthly injections to help them. 

Yes their details have been updated. 

Personally I feel their doesn’t  seem to be a system in place, regardless of what some people say.

Yes, some people have been out forward for this batch with Astrazenica, and my guess is that, until today, it was only to be given to under 65s, so their name would have been put forward for it a couple of days ago. Maybe they've received a supply of the vac and need to use it up before it goes off. Just saying it may be the reason, and is only a guess.

There was an article in the Daily mail saying that Spain niw plans to vaccinate all 60 to 65’d immediately using the Oxford Astra Zeneca vaccine. All older people will receive theirs soon starting after the 80’s have received theirs and working back.  My guess is that it’s all this controversy about the AZ being safe so giving to under 65’s. I’m over 70 as is my husband and we’ve had it with no repercussions, second vaccine in 10 days time.   In all truth, it’s good to see some movement in Spain finally. Fingers crossed for you oldies!

I’m 63 and also have my appointments for AZ vaccines. They’re only giving it to people born between 1956 and 2003 (inclusive dates). They’re also waiting three months between doses. 


It’s a shame that older people are missing out but I don’t think we should feel guilty about it. I’ll be protecting myself and others. 

Older people will continue to be given other vaccines. Check out vacunacovid dot gob dot es for details of delivered and administered vaccinations in Spain.

The messages people are getting to their phones about the AstraZeneca vaccine is for the UNDER 65’s. If you are 66, 67, 68 or any older whatsoever you will not be receiving this jab. Vaccines are being given due to supply and at the moment the available vaccines are the AstraZeneca ones.

If you are over 65 you will get your appointment as soon as they have vaccines available, you will also receive a call from your medical centre which is where your jab is most likely to be given to you to stop unnecessary travel for vulnerable people.

Hi Denver,

After completing the vaccination of teachers with the AZ jabs, Spain is using up its remaining supplies on the general population under 65 years old.  The remaining groups between 65 and 79 years old will start the week after.

On 19 April, Spain is scheduled to start receiving the Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) single dose jab - 1.3m doses in April, 2.9m doses in May and 3.5m in June 🤞

Kind regards,

Kim

This is surprising as Spain has decided to only give AZ to people born between 1956 and 2003.

Hi Johnsrcherfam. We didn’t receive a call from the medical centre. We got a txt. We are 63, 64 next month and my husband is 64. We live in Villena. My appointment is in Elche and my Husbands is in Elder. So not at our medical centre. We are both have the A Z vaccine and both have our second appointments in June. We are very very grateful and can’t wait until this Tuesday. Have a good weekend 😎
