Anti-vaccine graffiti and car damage investigated at health centres in Mijas and Marbella

Attacks on health workers’ private vehicles are being probed by police


Attacks on the private vehicles of workers parked at a health centre on the Costa del Sol are being investigated by the National Police. The force is also investigating the appearance of anti-vaccine and Covid-denier graffiti in the vicinity of the Las Lagunas (Mijas) and Las Albarizas (Marbella) health centres.

The incidents have been reported by the UGT union which claims that some of these attacks are connected with the health workers administration of coronavirus vaccines.

Staff at the Las Lagunas health centre arrived at work on Tuesday with messages such as "murdering health workers" and "vaccine = death" daubed on some of the walls of the building. In addition, several cars that were parked in the Las Albarizas primary care centre suffered damage to the windows or bodywork. Both episodes have already been reported, and police are investigating the incidents.

"Enough is enough"

The UGT has said "enough is enough" in the face of attacks on workers in the region’s health centres. "We demand more security measures from the Andalusian health authorities before something more serious happens.”
