The Councilor for Health, Rita Berruti, today attended the coordination meeting of the health area of the Marina Alta, regular meetings that serve to share initiatives and problems in health matters. These meetings were established during the pandemic and have now been resumed at the request of Xàbia and Poble Nou de Benitatxell.
At today's meeting, the next two vaccination campaigns were discussed, against the flu and COVID-19. In the case of the flu, it will be from October 17 to January 31 and people interested in receiving it must request it from Friday October 14 at their Health Center or at the virtual counter.
As for the general vaccinations against COVID, they will also be resumed shortly once the fourth dose has already been injected into the elderly in the residences in the region, as well as the staff who work in these centers. It can be requested by people who have the third dose pending or by groups that have recommended the fourth (over 65 years of age, health workers, pregnant women or people with previous pathologies).
Regarding the current situation in the region, it is at a low incidence level and hospital admissions are not due to complications of COVID but because the patients had other pathologies.
Taking advantage of the contact, from the municipalities the concern for current health care has once again been sent to Marina Salud, especially in certain medical areas, such as psychiatry or urology, a specialty in which there are currently only 2 doctors.
