The Festival de Les Arts will host the first mobile vaccination point against covid-19 in concerts and the vaccine will be administered regardless of whether or not it is planned to attend as a public, according to sources from the Ministry of Health.
The Festival will be held on November 5 and 6 in the City of Arts and Sciences but the mobile vaccination team will attend on Thursday 4 and Friday 5, between 4 and 8 p.m., according to a statement from the Generalitat.
“The device anticipates a day before the celebration of the festival to make it coincide with the accreditation schedule of the attendees and thus stagger the vaccination of those who, for whatever reason, have pending vaccination”, explains the Minister of Health, Ana Barceló.
In this way, people who have not yet been vaccinated against the coronavirus or have only received one dose of the vaccine, will be able to approach the accreditation center of the festival to be immunized, regardless of whether or not they plan to attend as a public.
The event requires attendees to have a Covid Digital Certificate or PRDA with a negative result, and is governed by the protocol of the Conselleria de Sanidad Universal y Salud Pública for outdoor music festivals.
This protocol allows freedom of movement in the facilities for the consumption of food and beverages and for dancing, always maintaining interpersonal safety distance and wearing a mask, except at the time of consumption.
VACCINATION CONTINUES IN LARGE AREAS, CAMPUS AND HEALTH CENTERS
The installation of vaccination tents at the Les Arts Festival is in tune with other initiatives launched after the completion of the mass vaccination in the 133 points distributed by the Valencian Community.
These measures have been immunization in sporting events (Martínez Valero, Mestalla, Ciutat de València or La Cerámica stadiums for league matches) or in large stores (La Salera Shopping Center in Castelló de la Plana).
“We moved vaccination units to music competitions, shopping centers, university campuses and other events or spaces with massive influx of people, to continue expanding vaccination coverage against the coronavirus,” recalls Barceló.
The Minister of Health also points out that people pending completion or initiation of the vaccination schedule “can also make an appointment at their health center.”
For their part, the Primary Care centers are actively searching for people waiting to be vaccinated to start or complete the process.
BOOSTER DOSE AND FLU VACCINE
The Department of Universal Health and Public Health continues to administer a booster dose of the coronavirus vaccine to people residing in senior centers and those with high-risk health conditions. A total of 39,451 booster doses have been administered to these two groups.
The administration of this third dose will be extended from next week to people over 70 years of age, as agreed by the Ministry of Health and the autonomous communities.
This booster dose will be of m-RNA (Pfizer and Moderna vaccines) and will be injected together with the flu vaccine (preferably one injection in each arm) in Primary Care centers.
In order to receive it, at least six months must have passed since the second dose.
