The Community of Madrid will incorporate 10 hospitals from the public network into the vaccination strategy against covid-19 as of this weekend. The Deputy Minister of Public Health and the Covid-19 Plan, Antonio Zapatero, announced it after receiving the first dose of AstraZeneca at the Isabel Zendal Nurse Hospital. The 10 hospital centers included will be divided into two depending on the age of the population they will receive from this Saturday, April 10. On the one hand, the 12 de Octubre, Gregorio Marañón, La Paz and Fundación Jiménez Díaz hospitals will begin to administer the Pfizer vaccine to people between 70 and 74 years old; while in the hospitals of Móstoles, Alcorcón, Fuenlabrada, Severo Ochoa, Getafe and Puerta de Hierro, people between the ages of 60 and 65 will be vaccinated with AstraZeneca.
In video, the Deputy Minister of Public Health and the Covid-19 Plan of the Community of Madrid, assures this Wednesday that vaccines will be administered in ten Madrid public hospitals.
Citizens who are going to be vaccinated this weekend in these hospital centers will be summoned through an interactive SMS where they can confirm their appointment or request a change of date. In the event that the individual does not confirm their appointment through this option, they will receive a phone call from the Personalized Attention Center (CAP) of the Ministry of Health to find out the date and place of their appointment.
In addition, this Friday, April 9, mass vaccination will also begin at the Wizink Center with AstraZeneca for people between the ages of 60 and 65. This device will be coordinated by Summa 112, and is the third point of this type enabled after those of the Wanda Metropolitano stadium and the Isabel Zendal Nurse Hospital. The vaccination campaign also continues in Primary Care health centers for people between 75 and 80 years of age.
On the other hand, the Community of Madrid has reported that in the middle of next week the vaccination of people in risk groups will begin in third-level hospitals, that is, those of greater complexity. The risk groups are those included in the latest update of the national vaccination strategy of the Ministry of Health and include transplanted patients or patients on waiting lists to be transplanted, on hemodialysis, with oncohematological disease, solid organ cancer, primary immunodeficiencies, infection for HIV, and Down syndrome over 40 years. These patients will be summoned directly from the hospitals where they are usually cared for.
