Citizens who need extra protection can get a coronavirus jab with a new vaccine in November. The shot is recommended for those over 60 and those 18 to 60 years of age who have to get the flu shot every year. The new vaccine is also intended for use in pregnant women and for people with e. g. high blood pressure, diabetes, lung/ kidney problems, and healthcare workers. The new coronavirus is needed because the previous vaccines do not protect enough against new types of corona.
The new vaccine protects people with vulnerable health from hospitalization due to infection with the new variants of the coronavirus. This will reduce the chance of these people dying from corona. The coronavirus is still rearing its head.
Therefore, it is particularly important for vulnerable people to protect themselves against the virus. And it’s also important that healthy people with a vulnerable person in the vicinity get a shot, too. In this way, healthy people can protect the vulnerable people around them.
From 30 October 2023 to 3 November 2023, healthcare workers who wish to be vaccinated will be the first to be vaccinated. From 6 November 2023 to 1 December 2023, citizens who wish to can get the corona inyeccion. You can do so at the district centres in Antriol, Nort Saliña, Rincon and Tera Kòrá.
The days and times will be announced. Citizens who get a shot in the neighborhood don’t have to make an appointment for this. A team from the Department of Public Health can also inject people at home if they have difficulty getting to the community centers.
