Have you not been notified yet to get vaccinated against coronavirus and it’s up to your age group? The Ministry of Health has reported on the steps to be followed by these people, who should receive an SMS with the appointment to receive the doses in the provinces of Alicante, Valencia and Castellón.
This week an important phase has begun in the mass vaccination of the Valencian Community, in which people of 79 years and those of 65 will receive immunity (at least the first dose). This age difference that does not follow the logical descending line is motivated by the different recommendations of vaccines according to age.
Covid vaccination in Alicante, Valencia and Castellón
At this time, according to the data of this Wednesday of Health, the Valencian Community has administered a total of 933,355 doses of the coronavirus vaccine. To do this, Health sends an SMS message indicating the date, time and place where you will be vaccinated against the coronavirus. In addition, the message also informs about which vaccine you will receive (Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Janssen, Moderna …).
Steps to follow if you have not received the SMS with the appointment for the vaccine
Despite the acceleration in the vaccination schedule in the Valencian Community, which will increase in the coming weeks, you may not have received the SMS yet. Three different things can happen that have caused you to miss your appointment via phone message.
That you are not of age and it is not your turn yet. If Health is vaccinating 79-year-olds and you are 45, you will have to wait for the vaccination schedule to reach your age group. You can check here when you will be vaccinated according to your age.
That you don’t have an appointment. It is possible that you are the age of the vaccination period but, for organizational reasons, you are not yet going to receive the vaccine. In this case, you will receive the message in the next few days, as immunity advances to your age group.
That you do not have updated contact information in your SIP. Without updated data, Health will have problems contacting you and informing you about your appointment. To find out how to update the contact information in the SIP, click here.
What to do if you have not received the SMS with your appointment for the vaccine
From Health they have insisted on a question that they consider “important” to be done by those people who have not received the SMS with the appointment for the coronavirus vaccine in the Valencian Community and who are wondering what they should do.
Once you have checked that you have the updated contact information, you must wait for Health to contact you. Under no circumstances should you go to the vaccination points to receive your dose because you will not be vaccinated and, in addition, you will hinder the vaccination process.
