The AstraZeneca vaccine to be administered again in Andalusia

The Regional Ministry of Health and Families of the Andalusian Government has resumed administration of the AstraZeneca vaccine as of Wednesday 24 March. The decision has been approved by the Spanish Ministry of Health, authorising vaccination for people up to 65 years of age.

Specifically, Andalusia will administer the AstraZeneca doses that had been stored pending inoculation, in addition to the 17,800 doses that will arrive this week, which is why the appointments have been rescheduled.

The vaccination with AstraZeneca is in addition to that currently in force with Pfizer, which is being inoculated these days in people over 80 years of age, major dependents, and health workers. This week there are practically no doses of Moderna.

In total, Andalusia expects to receive 99,450 doses from Pfizer and 17,800 new doses from AstraZeneca for use this week. At the end of the week, 20,000 doses will be received from AstraZeneca, and 56,800 doses of Moderna to be administered the following week.
