the people already vaccinated against covid-19 they already know when you can get the booster dose in Spain. It will be from the fourth week of your convalescence. The change in protocol was made public by the Ministry of Health in the last update of the document “Vaccination strategy against covid-19 in Spain”.

This last modification on the delivery of the third doses affects the people under 65 who have already received a complete immunization schedule in the last six months (in the case of Pfizer and Moderna) or in the last three months in the case of Janssen or AstraZeneca) and who became infected with covid-19 after this period. In both cases, an mRNA vaccine will be given as a booster dose (Pfizer or Moderna).

According to the latest update from the Ministry of Health, the protocol is applicable to all people “With a history of symptomatic or asymptomatic infection” by the coronavirus. Also in the case of self-diagnosis by antigen testing. This same recommendation also applies in the case of health workers, as evidenced by the last update of the sectoral immunization plan. The document considers the only exception to this rule the case of residents of centers for the elderly, as well as very dependent people and people at very high risk.

At this time, as was done at the start of the vaccination campaign, the administration of third doses is available according to age groups and age groups. Right now, in most Autonomous Health Communities, nursing home workers, teachers and “essential staff”, you can already make an appointment for your booster dose. The call also includes the population over 40 who received their full immunization schedule more than six months ago (in case the deadline is shorter, in fact, the protocol provides for allowing this interval to pass). As announced by the health authorities, the the call will be broadened in the coming weeks to other age groups.
