This is how the vaccination groups in Spain remain after the arrival of the AstraZeneca vaccine


This week, Spain has begun to immunize with a third vaccine, that of AstraZeneca. With this and those of Pfizer and Moderna, more than 700,000 doses have already been disposed of. But the limitations of the Oxford vaccine have forced a reordering of priorities in the vaccination groups. The Public Health Commission has introduced a new category: that of workers at risk of exposure due to their work activity who will be vaccinated before the elderly.

The first to be vaccinated were the residents of the senior centers and their workers. They made up group 1 of vaccination priority. The 2 is made up of first-line toilets. Both groups have been receiving the vaccine from Pfizer and Moderna. The next to be vaccinated, group 3 were initially non-first-line health workers and later, in group four, the large dependents would go. They would be followed in five by those over 80 years of age, and then those aged 70 and over.

Nevertheless, AstraZeneca vaccine limitations have touched these plans. Health will only administer this vaccine to those under 55 years of age, at least until there are more trials in people above that age. This circumstance has led the Health Commission to modify group 3 and divide it into 2. The 3A already established and 3B, which includes health service managers, forensic doctors, private medical consultations, physiotherapists, pharmacists, psychologists or correctional institution workers. This same week they began to be vaccinated, before the older ones.

Then group 6 will go, that of essential workers such as firefighters, police, military, civil guards, emergency services. Also teachers, both early childhood, primary and secondary education or students with special needs. Of course, both those in group 3B and 6 will have to be under 55 years old. Which leaves a good part of these groups out.

For now, those over 55 for now will have to wait their turn for the other vaccines. On the other hand, those under 55 who have already passed the disease are excluded from vaccination for the next 6 months.
