How to make an appointment for childhood vaccination in Osakidetza and Osasunbidea




In order to clarify the doubts that exist around the vaccination of boys and girls, we show you some recommendations and details.

Osakidetza and Osasunbidea will begin tomorrow, Wednesday, with childhood vaccination. Previously, the families of the Basque Autonomous Community must request a prior appointment through the Osakidetza website. In Navarra, for their part, they will receive the summons by SMS or by phone call.

Who will be the first to get the vaccine?

The vaccination process will start with people born in 2012, 2011 and 2010 (11, 10 and 9 years old) to progressively descend until they reach the age of five. Therefore, those who have children under the age of 9 must wait until they are due.

How should the appointment be made?

In the case of Basque Autonomous Community, there are two ways:

– Online, by accessing the Osakidetza website

– By phone, calling the health center or 900.20.30.50 (press key 1). An appointment will be assigned in the first free slot and you will receive an SMS with all the information.

In Navarra, the citation of the child population will be made by sending SMS, with the exception of the very high risk population (from group 7) with whom Osasunbidea will contact by telephone.

Where will they get the vaccine?

In the CAV, child vaccination will be carried out mainly at intermediate points, and exceptionally, in health centers. In any case, when making the request, the families will be indicated the exact place for the vaccination.

In the Foral CommunityFor its part, Osasunbidea will begin to inoculate this Wednesday at the Tafalla House of Culture and at the Santesteban sports center, and from Thursday it will do so in a more massive way with the launch of the vaccination point at the Pamplona Seminary.

Should people who have recently had the disease get vaccinated?

Osakidetza has specified that, for now, those minors who either have an active infection or have passed the covid-19 in the last two months, about 5,600 people, will not be vaccinated.

The Government of Navarra, for its part, has explained that the population between 5 and 11 years that has passed the disease will be vaccinated with a single dose from 4 weeks after diagnosis of infection or date of onset of symptoms.

In the case of passing the infection after having received the first dose, the regimen will be completed with a second dose after recovery and when 4 weeks have elapsed after the infection, also maintaining the interval of 8 weeks with respect to the first dose.

Follow the recommendationss in the face of coronavirus from the health authorities. If you live in the CAV and have symptoms, call your usual health center. The Health Council will also attend to people on the phone 900 20 30 50, offering information and solving doubts about the coronavirus. If you live in Navarra, call the Health Council telephone number: 948 290 290. Remember that the most effective way to prevent the spread of covid-19 is to use a mask, ventilate spaces, keep a safe distance, and wash hands.
