Hola! 

Does anyone know if as non-residents staying in our holiday home we can get a covid booster vaccination the new one that’s being launched in the UK from next week, preferably the Pfizer one that has far fewer side effects.

Look on Facebook  "they died suddenly"and ask yourself do you really need a booster. As far as I'm aware you can travel with just a PCR or other such test. On the Facebook page there are over 100, 000 accounts of people dying suddenly.

I think the vaccines have had their day, they don't stop you getting covid and from spreading it.

It's your choice.

Why would you want a booster, it’s been proven that it’s a mild case now and the vaccines have a dubious history to say the least

Hi Rusty, sorry but your statement above is ambiguous, it may have been proven that the variant most commonly circulating at present is having less serious effects on healthy people, I agree. But it most definitely has not been proven that the approved vaccines have a dubious history. Can you update me on this so called (proof) to back up your opinion, not hearsay, but the actual proof. Additionally it hasn’t gone any way toward answering the OP’s question. You have just used their question as an opportunity to put forward your anti vaccination opinions.

Hi,

   I don't know if Spain has announced a autumn booster program yet or even if they will decide to have one.

  You will be able to get a booster when you go back to the UK, assuming you are on the maximum 90 day visit rule?  I will have to have mine in November as we are in Spain from next week until end of October. 

 Ignore the posts from the doubters, the vaccines are safe and effective.

Aitch.

Many thanks. Much appreciated, positivity and community support is essential and having known too many people lost to COVID whatever we can do to protect ourselves and others too at our young age is essential.

Most people have had 3, so it will be the 4th. If you lose count by 3 then perhaps there is some other underlying health issue in play? Or you may be thinking of this German guy...............

This time the UK will be using the Moderna vaccine specifically designed against the two most common variants of Covid.
