More than 14,000 people in the Vigo health area who are between the ages of 12 and 59 have already received the fourth dose of the covid vaccine, a possibility that the Ministry of Health opened in mid-December last and that is being carried out in Vigo. carried out on the ground floor of the Álvaro Cunqueiro Hospital.
Anyone can make an appointment or go freely to get vaccinated against covid, both for this booster dose, and for any other that has been pending. One of the requirements is not having had covid in the last five months.
The Vigo hospital vaccinates every day, from Monday to Saturday, in the morning, specifically from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Yesterday morning a vaccination point was working with about twenty people in line at twelve noon. However, professionals expand the vaccination points when they have more candidates to be immunized and in fact they recognize that interest is increasing in recent days, especially among the group of teachers.
For adults, Cunqueiro has established two days a week to be able to get vaccinated in the afternoon. They are on Tuesdays and Fridays, between 3:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m., both in the form of an “open bar” (those who come spontaneously) and with a concerted appointment that gives them priority.
