The President of Castilla-La Mancha, Emiliano Garcia-Page, announced this Thursday at an Amazon event in the Toledo town of Illescas that the Community Board will begin within a period of three weeks to administer the third dose of the covid vaccine in homes for the elderly in the region.
Page thus confirms the intention already announced by the Castilian-La Mancha government to begin put this third dose, an autonomous position that the Community Board defended this Wednesday at the Interterritorial Health Council, held in Madrid.
“Yesterday the Government of Spain responded to the request of Castilla-La Mancha, a request of common sense,” he celebrated García-Page, who has applauded that people “with more vulnerability” can be vaccinated again.
The Castilian-La Mancha president has recalled that is already being vaccinated with an additional dose to people with more vulnerability due to their low immunity.
This would be the case of patients on hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, undergoing treatment for cancer, over 40 years of age with Down syndrome, patients with oncohematological disease, solid organ cancer undergoing chemotherapy and lung cancer undergoing treatment or immunotherapy.

As is known, Health has proposed this Wednesday to the communities, within the framework of the Interterritorial Council of the National Health System, administer the third dose of the covid vaccine to seniors in residences as of October 4, an initiative that has had the consensus of all the autonomies, as reported by Europa Press.
The Minister of Health has explained it, Carolina Darias, in the press conference after the Council, in which he also valued the fact that Spain has reached the 75 percent of population with complete guideline, which means that “three out of four people are fully vaccinated. A tremendously relevant data.”
In addition to administering the third dose to institutionalized elderly people, Health and the communities want extend this additional dose to people with low immunity as is the case of patients on hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis, undergoing treatment for cancer, over 40 years of age with Down syndrome, patients with oncohematological disease, solid organ cancer undergoing chemotherapy and lung cancer undergoing treatment or immunotherapy.
This proposal, which has its origin in the presentation of vaccines, will be evaluated this Thursday by the Public Health Commission who will have the last word although Everything suggests that the unanimity of the Interterritorial Council makes the administration of the third dose viable in these groups.
The past Interterritorial has already approved, after passing through the Public Health Commission, administering the vaccine to people with hematopoietic stem cell transplants and solid organ transplants or on the waiting list.
