Until the end of the year, the vaccination centres will only be open on the Wednesday and Thursday of this week and, in the following week, on the 27th, 28th, 29th and 30th.

In a statement, the Directorate-General for Health (DGS) adds that on the 23rd, Thursday, the vaccination centres will only work under the “Open House” regime for people aged 60 or over.

Currently, the process of vaccination with a booster dose is ongoing for people aged 60 and over and for those over 50 who have received the Janssen vaccine.

The vaccination of children between the ages of 5 and 11 began last weekend, when over 95,000 children aged 9 and over were vaccinated, but the process will only resume from January 6.
