Son Dureta has eight new COVID-19 vaccination lines operational. With these new lines, the vaccination point has sixteen lines and a capacity to vaccinate around 5,000 people a day. Vaccination hours are from 8 am to 9 pm, Monday to Friday.
As of today, a team made up of a health worker and a nurse from the Spanish Army will join the vaccination work at this point. This brings the total number of teams provided by the Ministry of Defence to help with the vaccination work in the Balearic Islands to 7.
It is worth remembering that since 17 January, the self-appointment service for vaccination (BitCita) has been open for the population aged 18 and over. Through the website, www.ibsalut.es/es/cita-para-la-vaccination-contra-la-covid-19 appointments are provided for the entire population over the age of 18 pending the booster dose, as determined by the National Vaccination Strategy of the Ministry of Health.
Through BitCita you can make an appointment at the following vaccination points: in Mallorca, Hospital Son Dureta and Espai Francesc Quetglas (Palma); in Menorca vaccines are administered at health centres and the Mateu Orfila Hospital; in the Pitiusas islands, vaccines are administered at the Can Misses Hospital, the Sant Antoni de Portmany, Vila and Santa Eulària des Riu health centres and the Formentera Hospital.
Currently, 37.15% of the population between 5 and 1 1 years of age has received the first dose, and 50.66% of the target population has been vaccinated with the booster dose. The Ministry of Health and Consumer Affairs reminds us that vaccination is safe and effective in combating the COVID-19 pandemic, as scientific evidence shows.
