Marbella has enabled this week four days of mass vaccination without prior appointment and has lowered the age to over 16 years. This was explained today by the mayor, Ángeles Muñoz, who has once again appealed to the population to go to the centers authorized by the City Council and the Health District to inoculate the serums against Covid-19 “because it is an essential measure ”. “All health professionals are working morning and afternoon in the infrastructures that we have provided with all the guarantees for the peace of mind of the users”, highlighted the first mayor, who has reported that the Health District is currently injecting 10,000 weekly doses “but we are in a position to reach 15,000 units ”. Likewise, he indicated that “the idea is to continue lowering the age” and, at this point, he has hoped that this week the range of between 12 and 16 years can be opened “so that they start the school year with the guarantee of having the minus one dose ”.
Specifically, the councilor has detailed that both tomorrow, Tuesday and Wednesday, August 4, from 2.30 p.m. to 7.00 p.m., users of the Leganitos, Las Albarizas and Las Chapas outpatient clinics with ages between 16 and 39 years will be able to travel to the Palacio de Ferias y Congresos Adolfo Suárez to receive the first dose of Pfizer or Moderna, while those over 40 will be injected with the single dose of Janssen. In San Pedro Alcántara, users of the Sampedreño and Nueva Andalucía health centers will be able to go both today, Monday and Thursday, August 5, to the Tent of the old fairgrounds from 2.30 p.m. to 7.30 p.m., with the same age criteria. “The objective is to vaccinate as many people as possible,” he said, adding that “although people with the full schedule are not totally safe from the virus, the effects if they become infected are much milder ”.
