National Vaccination plan for Spain 

6th October - Just a week ago it was planned to shut all of the mass covid vaccination centres in our region, but following the news yesterday that the European medicine agency has approved the idea of a third booster jab for all above 18 years old (using the Pfizer vaccine for all, irrespective of type given for first 2 doses) The deconstruction of the mass centres has been put on hold. Depending on the final decision taken by Spain, they could be in use again.

29th September - The "vacunódromo" of Benidorm is now CLOSED 

Health centers will continue to vaccinate against covid-19 and will carry out an "active search" for the people who remain to be immunized, anyone who is not yet immunized and wants to be vaccinated should contact their health centre.


Sanidad makes the 'Patient Portal' available to citizens on its website - 

With a single click you can access services that will avoid travel and waiting - Pending appointments can be consulted not only in Primary Care, but also with each specialist

The Department of Universal Health and Public Health has developed a section on the website called 'Patient Portal', which collects, on a single page, the sections most consulted by citizens  that have to do with the health care they receive .

The 'Patient Portal' offers a much more visible and accessible usability experience. With a single click you can access from the home page of san.gva.es (see here: http://www.san.gva.es/web_estatica/index_va.html) to information and services that will avoid travel or waiting.

In the portal you can find different sections such as, for example, consult a medical appointment at the health center. In addition, this new version incorporates two outstanding novelties in the service through the web. For the first time, pending appointments can be consulted not only in Primary Care, but also with each specialist. A section with information on video consultations has also been incorporated: the temporary solution that the Ministry is implementing to improve communication with the patient, above all, with the reduction of presence due to COVID-19.

You have direct access to the 'SIP Health Card' section, where there will be the different procedures that will allow, in an agile and simple way, to register and also request the renewal of the health card or the modification of the contact information, as well such as the recording of communication preferences dependent on hearing ability.

Other functionalities are to be able to access the Electronic Health History or to solve the most frequent doubts through 'Your SAIP responds'. The general director of Planning, Technological Efficiency and Patient Care, Llanos Cuenca, stressed that "we continue working to simplify the procedures that citizens carry out with those issues related to their health, while we bring them closer to health by eliminating all kinds of barriers , even those that come to us due to circumstances such as the pandemic.

COVID Digital certificate of the European Union - COVID passport: how to apply, deadlines and certificate types

The so-called ‘coronavirus passport’ will come into force across the 27-country bloc on July 1st, and aims to standardize documents such as proof of vaccination or PCR test results

The Ministry of Health issues from 6th June the digital green certificate in its three variants to speed up travel in the EU. The certificate is a proposal by the European Union to safely facilitate the free movement of citizens in the EU during the pandemic. It aims to function as a fast track in order to speed up entry and exit procedures between the countries of the Union. Countries can now start issuing and using it and it will be available in all EU Member States from 1st July 2021.

The certificates will be issued free of charge in electronic or paper version, at the request of the citizen with his SIP card. You can request it from the coronavirus portal, the GVA+ Health App or the patient portal. All of them meet the security criteria required by the Spanish Data Protection Agency. In addition, the possibility of obtaining a face-to-face certificate through the request for an appointment at the counter agendas of your health center is contemplated.

Three types of COVID passport

There are three types of certificate in which the QR accreditation is collected digitally and which will contain the essential information and the digital signature that gives it validity.

Digital Covid Vaccination Certificate: allows you to prove that the person has received one or two doses of one of the COVID vaccines approved by the EU. The validity of this certificate is 365 days after the date of vaccination.

Digital Covid Certificate of Recovery: certifies that the person has recovered from the disease after having confirmed the presence of the virus by means of a positive PCR test. This certificate will be valid from the end of the isolation period, day 11 of the positive PCR test until 180 days later.

Digital Covid Certificate of Tests: offers the accreditation that the person has a negative result of a diagnostic test, which can be PCR or antigen test. In the case of the PCR test the result will be valid for 72 hours and the validity of the antigen test will be 48 hours. In order to be able to prove the results of antigen tests, any type of test is not valid, but must have been carried out with one of the commercial kits approved by the EU.

When travelling, the holder should, in principle, be exempted from restrictions on free movement: Member States should refrain from imposing additional travel restrictions on persons holding an EU Digital Covid Certificate, unless such restrictions are necessary and proportionate to safeguard public health. In any case, it is important that all people are sure of the requirements that each country has to travel.

Vaccination in the COVID passport

The document will set out when, where and how many doses the traveller has received and will be binding on vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), which has so far validated drugs from Pfizer-BionTech, Moderna, Astrazeneca and Jannsen. However, the certificate will also contain information on whether the traveller has received any other vaccine approved by a Member State but not by the EMA, as is the case in Hungary with the Russian Sputnik V vaccine and the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine, although it will be up to each Member State to decide whether it considers them valid or not.

A useful guide to vaccines, how safe are they, what side effects you might suffer, etc...it tells you many of the pros and cons THE VACCINE AGAINST COVID-19

What are MRNA vaccines, such as the one used for COVID-19?

The function of vaccines is to generate immunity against a certain disease in the body, stimulating it to produce antibodies which will then act to protect itself against future infections.

MRNA vaccines, such as the one for COVID-19, are a fairly new type of vaccine, and they can be developed in a laboratory with readily available materials, in a short space of time.

How do MRNA vaccines, such as the one for COVID-19 work?

MRNA vaccines give instructions to our cells to make a harmless piece of what is called the “spike protein.” The spike protein is found on the surface of the virus that causes COVID-19.

Once the instructions (MRNA) are inside the immune cells, the cells use them to make the protein piece. After the protein piece is made, the cell breaks down the instructions and gets rid of them.

Next, the cell displays the protein piece on its surface. Our immune system recognises that the protein doesn’t belong there and begins building an immune response and making antibodies, like what happens in a natural infection against COVID-19.

At the end of the process, our bodies have learned how to protect against future infection. The benefit of MRNA vaccines, like all vaccines, is those vaccinated gain this protection without ever having to risk the serious consequences of getting sick with COVID-19.

What are the BENEFITS of vaccination?

Vaccinated people are PROTECTED AGAINST AN INFECTION BY COVID-19. There is no absolute evidence yet on whether the vaccine can prevent the TRANSMISSION of the virus.

Is the vaccine SAFE?

The clinical evaluation of this vaccine for the EU has been carried out by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), analysing preclinical information, vaccine quality and clinical trials, in which 44,000 volunteers have participated in 150 centres in six countries.

What are the SIDE EFFECTS of the vaccine?

6%: local reactions to the injection, swelling and pain.
17%: fever
59%: fatigue
51.7% headache
35%: cold
1.9% vomiting
10.4% diarrhoea
37.3%: muscle pain
21%: joint pain

Side effects were less frequent in people over the age of 56.

Is the vaccine effective against new variants of the virus?

Viruses constantly mutate. Antibodies generated by the current vaccines also recognise and neutralise new variants of the virus, such as those from the United Kingdom and South Africa.
