Once transferred to the Public Health Commission, the proposal must be approved by the Interterritorial Council of the Public Health System (CISNS)
The Presentation of Vaccines, made up of experts, will propose to the Public Health Commission that a booster dose of Pfizer or Moderna be injected to the nearly two million people who received the Janssen Single Serum. As sources close to the Conference have informed Efe, this booster dose is a possibility that vaccine experts have considered for a long time since the same laboratory, at the time it applied its only vaccine, launched a clinical trial for the second dose for what it supposes of improvement in the effectiveness.
Once transferred to the Public Health Commission, the proposal must be approved in the Interterritorial Council of the Public Health System (CISNS), made up of the Ministry of Health and the autonomous communities.
In this way, the 1.9 million people who have received a Janssen vaccine will receive a second booster dose with the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, both messenger RNA.
Recently, the Interterritorial Health Council approved booster doses with Pfizer and Moderna for people over 70 years of age and groups at high risk due to low immunity, and those receiving treatment with immunosuppressive drugs.
Booster doses have also been administered to institutionalized persons in centers for the elderly.
