If you are over 73 years old and have not been vaccinated call 012 now
The Ministry of Health of the Canary Islands has requested that from today, Wednesday 28th April, people residing in Tenerife and Gran Canaria born before 1948 who have not been received an SMS or a call for a vaccination appointment, to call 012 now to make on as soon as possible.
The objective of the initiative is to speed up the vaccination process among the population over 73 years of age, although this citation system, also still open for another week for those born between 1952 and 1955, the age group previously requested by the SCS.
The SCS is vaccinating the most vulnerable groups as quickly as possible, as stated in the national Vaccination Strategy against Covid-19. To do this, the citation systems that promote coverage of priority groups have been combined, since the arrival of the regular vaccines and now the new ones, with the incorporation of Janssen's, together with the opening of mass vaccination centres in both islands which allow an increase in the inoculation of the target groups and faster progress. Later, these lines of citation will be opened for other age groups.
The arrival of more vaccines, with the incorporation of Janssen, and the new mass vaccination points put into operation allow us to continue advancing in the vaccination calendar. In this way, in Gran Canaria, the population over 60 years of age may be summoned to be vaccinated in eitherof the two hospitals of the Canary Health Service (the Insular and Dr. Negrín), in the Primary Care Management of Gran Canaria , in Canalejas or in Expomeloneras or in Infecar. In addition, the population of Artenara and La Aldea de San Nicolás can be vaccinated in health centers in their area.

Sra. de Candelaria University Hospital, at the Hospital del Sur, and at the Casa del Emprendedor in Los Realejos.
In total, the new vaccination points, together with the existing ones in health centres, for people over 70 years of age, will offer a vaccination capacity of 30,000 doses per day as long as the fluid supply of vaccines continues to the islands.
