Can I choose which Covid-19 vaccine I get in Spain?: As Spain’s government website states, “the vaccines that will be available and when they will be licensed is still unknown”.
“It is very important to use the available vaccines to vaccinate people according to the established priority categories.”
“The information available relating to the use of each vaccine will be taken into account but, keeping in mind the limited number of doses and their difficult handling, it will not be possible to offer a choice”.
The Spanish government therefore doesn’t plan to give its population the option of choosing which vaccine they personally consider safest or most effective. (People with private health care providers may have a better chance of choosing which vax to receive. -Ed.)
