The Community of Madrid will incorporate from this weekend 10 hospitals into the vaccination campaign against Covid-19 , as announced by the Deputy Minister of Public Health and Covid-19 Plan, Antonio Zapatero, after having received the first dose of AstraZeneca in the Public Hospital Nurse Isabel Zendal .
As Zapatero explained, starting this Saturday the 12 de Octubre , Gregorio Marañón , La Paz and Fundación Jiménez Díaz hospitals will begin to administer the Pfizer vaccine to people between 70 and 74 years of age ; while the hospitals of Móstoles, Alcorcón, Fuenlabrada, Severo Ochoa, Getafe and Puerta de Hierro join this process in the population segment aged between 60 and 65 years, in this case with AstraZeneca.
Citizens who are going to be vaccinated this weekend in these hospitals will be summoned by sending an interactive SMS where they can confirm their appointment or request a change of date.
In the event that the user does not confirm their appointment through the option enabled for it, they will receive a telephone call from the telephone number 91.502.60.58, from the Personalized Attention Center (CAP) of the Ministry of Health.
This Friday also began the vaccination with AstraZeneca to people between the ages of 60 and 65 at the Wizink Center .
The device will be coordinated by SUMMA 112 , which will mean the activation of a new mass vaccination point in the Community of Madrid, together with those already enabled at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium and the Hospital Nurse Isabel Zendal.
Risk group patients
In parallel, Primary Care health centers continue to administer Pfizer to older people, progressively covering the age groups from 80 to 75 years. In this case, the summons to patients will be made through a telephone call from number 913 700 001.
On the other hand, in the middle of next week the vaccination of people in risk groups will begin in third-level hospitals , that is, those of greater complexity. These patients will be summoned directly from the hospitals where they are usually cared for.
The risk groups are those included in the latest update of the national vaccination strategy of the Ministry of Health and include transplanted patients or patients on waiting lists to be transplanted, on hemodialysis, with oncohematological disease, solid organ cancer, primary immunodeficiencies, infection for HIV, and Down syndrome over 40.
