Do you have private health insurance and are you still waiting for the vaccine?
FOR anyone with private health insurance, this is the form (below) from the Junta de Andalucia to take to your local health centre then register for the Covid vaccine. Remember to take a copy of your Passport, Padron and TIE/Residencia with you. Most of the health centres in the region are fortunate enough to have a group of volunteers that will help you fill in the form and hand it in for registration if your Spanish is not good enough.
To be included in the vaccination process, you must be registered in the BDU (user database). Some people – in general foreigners – may not be registered in the system when using private healthcare providers and have not received prior care in the Andalucian Public Health System.
In this case, it is necessary to register in the BDU in order to join the vaccination process against Covid-19, without this implying any right to other public health benefits.
To facilitate registration, it is necessary to complete this simple form and deliver it to a health centre. Click on the Junta de Andalucia link to take you directly to the site. Junta de Andalucía

Private Insurance Holders – Why you should get the vaccine
The vice president of the Board and Minister of Tourism, Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration, Juan Marín, has said that with the arrival of the fourth wave in Andalucia, it may force the Board to once again tighten the restrictions in the community back to where they were before the Easter holidays.
“If we have to return to old schedules, we will,” stressed Marín, although he pointed out that, for the moment, “the projection” of the pandemic curve “is not excessively bad.”
Angela Hodges, a British expat from Malaga, was overjoyed by the news, she said: “Brilliant news! My husband and i have been asking everyone about this and was very worried, I were even thinking of flying back to the UK to get the jab.”

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
Hmm, well I tried this, filled out the form correctly, took all copies of the documents with me including TIE, passport, Padron etc. My local health center looked at the registration form like it was an alien and told me to go to my private health care people. Did that, same look and answer. I have a feeling that this is going to take a lot more research to get a jab when you only have private health insurance?
