How to get your Covid vaccination even if you are not in the Spanish Public Health System

The Junta de Andalucía has given an official response to the big question: How to get Covid Vaccination having a private insurance?

As you might know, the private health insurance companies are NOT involved in the vaccination process as this is an issue of the Spanish government provided by the Public Health Service.

Now the Junta de Andalucía and it’s SAS (Servicio Andaluz de Salud = Andalusien Health Service) has announced how to proceed for people who live here in Spain, but didn’t have had the need to use the Public System as they are insured by a private health insurance company.

In this case, you have to fill in the following form – click here for download ›› and bring it to your local Centro de Salud (= Health Centre).

The feedback we got until now, is that you should bring:
– “Volante de empadronamiento” (town hall registration certificate - maximum 3 months old)

– Passport (photocopy and original)

– Residency NIE (= número de identificación de extranjero) / TIE (= tarjeta de identidad de extranjero)

– Membership card / contract of private health insurance company

There is a possibility to send these documents online, but you need your digital signature (which is quite a process to obtain).

So, the easiest – but probably most time consuming – option is to go to your local Centro de Salud, take a number or queue up and hand it over to the clerk.
