35 to 39s can now book Covid-19 vaccination appointments
27.6% of the population in Catalonia is fully immunized
People born between 1982 and 1986 can now book their Covid-19 vaccination appointments, as announced by Catalan health authorities on Thursday.
This means that 35 to 39s will be able to start getting their vaccinations a week after 40 to 45s were able to.
The Public Health Committee has also agreed to allow the vaccination of younger age groups — that is to say, 30-39, 20-29, and 12-19 — to overlap given the greater supply of doses and the more favorable state of the pandemic, but will continue to prioritize administering vaccines to older people first.

The default option asks you to provide your CIP code. The CIP is a 14-digit code on the front of your CatSalut public healthcare card. It contains four letters (normally, the two first letters of your first and second surname), followed by 10 numbers, which should include your birthday in YY/MM/DD format.
You can also click on the 'DNI/NIE/PASSAPORT' button on the top of the page and instead provide an alternative ID code.
The other boxes request your phone number, name, first surname, second surname (not compulsory), and email address. Fill them and click on the ‘Acceptar’ button.
You will receive an SMS code consisting of four numbers. Enter the code in the box and click ‘Acceptar’.
There is a list of different vaccination points across Catalonia, including public clinics, cultural centers, and other buildings.
Select a date (the ones in grey are not available) and a time to get the vaccine. Click on ‘Confirmar Cita’.
You will receive an SMS and an email confirming your appointment.
