At the present time, it can be considered that the vaccination of the groups initially prioritized in the first stage is almost complete:

  • Residents and health and social health personnel who work in homes for the elderly and care for large dependents
  • Front-line personnel in the health and social-health field
  • Other health and social health personnel (not included in the previous group) who carry out activities that require close contact with people who may be infected by SARS-CoV-2. Hospital and Primary Care personnel not considered first line have been prioritized. Dentistry, dental hygiene and other health personnel who care for people without a mask have also been vaccinated for more than 15 minutes
  • People considered as highly dependent (degree III dependency, that is, in need of intense support measures) not institutionalized.

The following groups are currently being vaccinated:

  • People over 80 years old (born in 1941 and in previous years). They will be vaccinated with the mRNA vaccines made by Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna
  • People between 70 and 79 years old. They will be vaccinated with mRNA vaccines (Pfizer / BioNTech and Moderna) or with Janssen vaccine
  • People with very high risk conditionsfrom 16-18 years old. They will be vaccinated in parallel to the previous group: hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, solid organ transplant and waiting list for solid organ transplantation, renal replacement therapy (hemodialysis and peritoneal dialysis), oncohematological disease, solid organ cancer treated with cytotoxic chemotherapy , metastatic or with radiotherapy for tumors in the thoracic location with risk of pneumonitis, primary immunodeficiencies, HIV infection with less than 200 cells / ml despite effective ART and undetectable viral load and Down syndrome over 40 years of age. These people (dependents and professional caregivers) will be vaccinated with mRNA vaccines, Janssen or Vaxzevria, the AstraZeneca vaccine, depending on the person’s age and availability
  • People between 60 and 65 years old. They will be vaccinated starting with people 60 years of age in ascending order of age with the AstraZeneca vaccine
  • People between 66 and 69 years old. They will be vaccinated with the AstraZeneca vaccine although the vaccination of this group can be completed with the vaccine that is available

The next group to be vaccinated will be:
