VACCINES continue in Almuñecar in its municipal stadium.
According to Almuñecar Council, the move has seen those aged between 73 and 79 receiving their vaccines at the Francisco Boney stadium.
Councillor for Security, Francisco Robles, visited the centre alongside the head of Civil Protection to see the vaccine rollout.
According to the council: “The rate of vaccination means that every day almost 300 people receive the dose, which, for now, are from Pfizer.”
It added: “Each vaccinated person receives an appointment for the second dose and an information note about the vaccine they receive from the health professionals themselves.”
The news comes after Almuñecar Council opened the municipal Francisco Bonet stadium to carry out vaccinations.
Almuñecar Council and the Southern Sanitary District of Granada of the Andalucian Health Service said they have worked to make sure the Francisco Bonet stadium can be used to administer large amounts of vaccines to the residents of Almuñecar, as well as Jete, Otivar and Lentegi in the Rio Verde region, aged between 74 and 79.
Last Wednesday, almost a hundred residents were called for a vaccination at the stadium, while the local health centre also called another 200 people, with both centres offering the Pfizer vaccine.
Vaccinations were also carried out on Thursday and Friday at the Almuñecar stadium.
The council said: “This means that up to three people will be summoned at the same time, for which the health personnel who have been transferred for the occasion will be doubled.
“The computer systems have been equipped by an Almuñecar technical manager… since as the vaccination is carried out, the history of the recipient is consulted to confirm all the data.”
The council said it has been helped by Civil Protection officers, as well as Local Police.
