Torrevieja has a booster jab campaign today and tomorrow at the hospital without an appointment
8.00am to 10.00pm. Expect long queues and a bit of a wait but it is probably the best way to get your booster before Christmas. You will need your SIP card or number and passport or TIE. Must be over 60 and 3 months for AZ or 6 for Pfizer and moderna. You can get flu( gripe) jab at same time.

I'm surprised Spain hasn't reduced the minimum age for Gripe jab. I think given situation it would be a worthwhile measure. I've had mine but not the wife as she's 4 years younger than me I believe minimum age in Spain is 65. Mind we both have had two covid jabs plus booster.

I can book my flu jab from an app on my phone and get an appointment for the next day.

I guess it depends where you live in Spain.

After being told off, Ill quickly answer the question, and mention CV19. Yes I do cook, but eat out most days.

With possible Covid lockdowns coming we'll all be cooking more, and I'll certainly look at this, as Ottolenghi is great! Thanks

On the news today the EMA has underlined the booster as an additional safety measure, and the more ticks in the box the better. Also in the news apparently they previously specified vaccine development protocols to include rapid adjustment as they anticipated variants. Its a huge thank you to the scientists for such a quick response already, to delta.... and the EU is set to order 160m modified vaccines, once tested ok.. again a great and rapid response.

Minimal social distancing, less than 50% masks on TFL, in fact on trains it appears a coffee cup of indeterminate age on the table in front of you that is never drunk from is the standard get out of mask wearing accessory
because this variant is no Worse than a cold. People in the UK have had enough of the hype and hysteria.

The South Africans were right when they said it’s much milder.

Well done Spain

If people followed the guide lines this pandemic if not defeated would have been less severe

Unfortunately there will always those that know better and have no respect for themseves or others

do you have to wear a face nappy in Gibraltar?.Not sure any one’s going to listen to Boris anymore regardless what he tries to impose. I had symptoms after two jabs just as my sister and her family did without any of theirs. I Thought I would have milder symptoms but was just the same really. Covid wasn’t to bad really.

Like all those who think having a bit of paper 'protects' them.

Also looks like the Valencia region has extended the passport thing to cover all bars and restaurants even on the outside terrace.
We had already decided that apart from shopping and our walks we were going to give the bars a miss for a bit.
Life don't revolve around a beer..

Having a bit of paper doesn't protect you, but not having it does. The point is to keep the unvaccinated out of areas with higher concentrations of people because later on if they catch it they clog up hospitals and ICUs.
