Catalonia has surpassed five million people fully inoculated with coronavirus vaccines, as reported by health authorities throughout the weekend.

Out of 7.7 million people living in Catalonia, 63.5% have received both doses, and 70.8% have been inoculated with at least one vaccine jab.

All age groups have at least 59% of their members with at least one vaccine dose. The only exceptions are teenagers aged 12 to 15, who became eligible three weeks ago, and younger children, who are still not being vaccinated.

How to get an appointment

Go to and click on the ‘Accedir-hi’ button at the bottom of the page.

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.
