New Vaccine Calendar of the Autonomous Community of the Canary Islands

News comes to our island from the Canary Islands government page. On July 3, the change in the 2019/2020 vaccination calendar was published in the Official Canary Islands Newsletter.

¿ What should we consider this year?

  • Vaccination against meningococcal serogroup B disease to the cohort of children born from July 1, 2019 will begin;
  • Equitable access to vaccines is guaranteed and all serogroups that produce 95 percent of bacterial meningitis are covered;
  • Guarantee us that the offer of a vaccine against Human Papillomavirus that includes 9 HPV oncogenic genotypes is improved.

These changes have occurred due to the appearance of new vaccines against different diseases. As well as new vaccines are incorporated (e.g. tetravalent conjugate vaccine against meningococcus A, C, W, Y at 12 years).

Calendario Vacunas

REMEMBER – that your pharmacy can administer and keep your vaccines. Vaccines should be carefully transported and preserved. Any improper handling or temperature change can cause a loss of potency and vaccine efficacy.

IDEAL– Ideally, buy the vaccine on the way to the vaccination center. Just before going to the appointment, having booked it in the pharmacy the previous days.

IMPORTANT – The Spanish Association of Pediatrics strongly discourages the purchase of vaccines online. You can also contact us by phone. Remember that we are here to advise you. Our priority is your health.

Come and visit us or follow us also through our social networks.

Thank you very much for reading and have a happy week.

Your pharmacy,
