Percentage of population vaccinated
#1
Does anyone know what % of the population on Fuerteventura has been single and double jabbed?

I haven't seen the exact figures recently, but they have started to vaccinate the over 18's now, so it must be high.

But it is not just the population, they have vaccinated non-residents, who for whatever reason are on the island, eg long term residents without residency etc.

At some point they will report that over 100% of the population have been done, assuming that the number of non-residents exceeds the number of under 18 residents!

That will confuse the WHO!

Really?! I didn't hear anything about this— can you remember where you read it? Very positive if so.

Interesting. I recently read that they were very disappointed over the numbers of under 30's coming to be vaccinated. But surely, if you are a long term resident without residency you are an illegal alien? Seems strange they would accept that.

I don't have S1 being too young. So I queued at Corralejo health centre with my TIE and empadronamiento and was pleasantly surprised when she booked me for a jab one hour later. (I am over 55 so maybe that helped).

However when I went to the old peoples centre I was not surprised that the guy on the door had no record of me as he had paper print outs which may well have been done at 9 am in the morning. But he was very nice and pointed me to a lady who was 'en linea'. To my horror she couldn't find me on the system either and I was about to weep over a wasted afternoon queuing. But no problem, she just waved me through with a smile and I got my first jab. 

It was a nice experience to see humanity succeed over bureaucracy. 

I did the same thing the other day at the health centre for the second jab. A different Lady wrote my appointment down on a scrap of paper as before, but this time,  she stamped it with an official health centre stamp. So I am even more 'official' than before.

But I struggle to see how you could get in the vaccination place with no ID. It was good for me as I had a TIE and the scrap of paper with the appointment. How would you manage this as a 'non resident resident'?

However, when I put my NIE in the website for the certificate there seems to be no record. But that's a subject for another post......

I assume "non-resident long term visitor" means the snowbirds coming from the EU who I think can stay for 90 in a year at a time without needing to be resident? If they're going to be there from October to March without going home, as long as there are vaccines available once the resident population have been vaccinated, it makes perfect sense to vaccinate them next. They're usually older meaning at risk of COVID complications, which then presents a risk to the Canarian Health Service if they become ill. 

If they're not taking up spots in the queue ahead of legal residents, I think this is a hugely positive thing for everyone.

It wasn't something I read, I know three people who do not have residency, but for various reasons have found themselves 'stranded' here.  The Heath Authority advertised for none residents to come forward. I forwarded that Facebook page to them, they went and registered at Centro Salud and in due course they were called for vaccination. At that point, they were vaccinating the younger ages groups, so they weren't taking vaccine from elderly residents.

Brilliant. Sensible response and delighted to know they're offering jabs to anyone who wants them at this point. They've acquitted themselves amazingly well with the vaccine roll-out on the island, I think!
