Updated immunisation strategy released: Vaccine 'turns' and types
02 March 2021 @ 16:25

NEW 'vaccine groups' have been published by Spain's health ministry, giving the public a greater idea of when it might be their turn – and which of the current three types they will receive.

The latter may be subject to change if additional brands of the Covid vaccine appear on the market – the Johnson & Johnson jab, which, it is claimed, provides immunisation in one dose, is likely to be the next to hit the shelves, whilst the Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca versions are now in use.

Health authorities in Spain still consider age to be the key risk factor, given that the immune system begins to weaken over the course of adult life – starting as young as the late 30s.

Immunity is thought to take a 'dive' in stages, with the first major reduction being between the end of the 30s and beginning of the 40s, and the second being at approximately 62 to 64 in men and 66 to 71 in women.
