The fourth vaccination, or second booster dose, against Covid-19 has been opened to people under 60 years of age in Andalucía, according to the regional Ministry of Health.

In contrast to the previous campaigns, those who wish to receive the injection must request it at their health centre - they will not be notified by telephone as occurred previously for each age bracket.

The Andalusian Director General of Public Health, Jorge del Diego, told SUR this is being done in a similar way to the flu vaccination campaigns. Citizens aged between 18 and 59 who want to be vaccinated with the fourth dose can do so at their health centre (with an advance appointment) or at the walk-in vaccination points.

How to make an appointment at the health centre:

This can be done in person at the primary care centre itself and through the usual channels for online appointments: ClicSalud+, the Salud Andalucía App ( Android - for iOS - for Huawei), the Salud Responde App ( Android - iOS - Huawei) and through the Salud Responde telephone number 955 54 50 50 60.
