The Junta de Andalucía has decided to ask the region’s top court, the TSJA, to make it mandatory that Covid vaccination certificate must be presented to access health and social care centres (care homes for the elderly).

The president of the regional government, Juanma Moreno, speaking in Marbella, said that he hopes that the court will approve the request, since it is something reasonable, so that it can be applied as soon as possible in order to protect against the coronavirus.

The measure was agreed at the meeting held by the region’s High Impact Public Health Alerts Advisory Council, better known as the ‘committee of experts’ during a session held at the Palacio de San Telmo in Seville.

Juanma Moreno made it clear, during his visit to the extension works of the Costa del Sol Hospital, that "we are still in a pandemic" and has emphasised that the virus has not gone away, but continues to spread, causing hospital admissions and deaths.

Moreno added that he regretted that the central government has not created a common ruling about the ‘Covid passport’ for the whole of Spain to avoid the disparity of judgements in all the regions.
