THE Spain decided today to grant a third dose of the vaccine against coronavirus to the tenants of the country’s nursing homes, as announced by the country’s Ministry of Health.

The Ministry’s Public Health Committee decided to grant “an additional dose to people living in nursing homes, given the vulnerability τους, του their polypathology profiles and the fact that they live in closed environments“, The ministry notes in a press release, which is quoted by Reuters and AFP.

According to the same sources, the nursing homes in Spain were hit severely from the pandemic, especially during the first wave in the spring of 2020.

In addition, the third installment will be given to other groups of citizens who are running danger, such as transplant patients or patients undergoing treatments, which weaken the immune defenses, added the ministry, which had already decided – in early September – a third dose to some immunocompromised citizens.
