SAS asks the public to note that at some of these points, and during certain days, the days without an appointment will also be focusing on the administration of second doses to people.

The appointment request can be made directly on the website of the Andalusian Health Service (SAS) through ClicSalud + by clicking: http://lajunta.es/2a5ny,

As a novelty, through these applications, people aged between 40 and 59, who have not yet been vaccinated, will be able to request an appointment for the administration of their first dose and will be offered messenger RNA vaccines (Pfizer or Moderna) instead of Janssen, as in the past, as reported by juntadeandalucia.es.
