Canary Islands cancel appointments to vaccinate teachers under 60
The Canary Islands have decided to cancel appointments this Thursday to vaccinate teachers under 60 years of age, after the Ministry of Health and the autonomous communities agreed on Wednesday night, within the plenary session of the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System ( CISNS), suspend the administration of the coronavirus vaccine developed by AstraZeneca in those under 60 years of age, so only people up to 65 years of age will be inoculated.
In this sense, the Canarian Ministry of Health has indicated to Europa Press that they will have to readjust their calendar after this decision.
For his part, the director of the Canary Islands Health Service (SCS), Conrado Domínguez, has indicated in statements to the Ser chain, collected by Europa Press, that vaccination is now going to be intensified in people between 60 and 65 years old, group already being vaccinated with AstraZeneca.
Finally, the SCS vaccination services inoculated 14,407 doses on Wednesday.
