Recommendations & Requests


Help with Covid vaccination: Hi Digamites, looking for advice on getting covid jab: I am resident, age 64 (plus husband age 60) both with private health insurance. Have registered for jab at Torrox Pueblo Health Centre with all the appropriate paperwork over 6 weeks ago but have heard nothing. Have visited to chase up but told its not the time yet. We’re very confused as to when we’ll get it. We have also checked on Salud Responde app which says we do not meet the criteria yet. Anyone in the same situation? Anyone have advice? Thanks in advance for your help, Gill and Simon, Torrox, sigillyespana@gmail.com


Disposal: We have some aluminium glass doors for disposal along with some other items too large for us to transport in our vehicle to the local refuse site in Velez Malaga. We live in Benamocarra.
If there is a company who can take it for us at a reasonable cost please contact
or phone 608394280. Whatsapp and Messenger also. Thanks. Elise & Martin

Health reproaches the communities for not complying with the agreements after the chaos with the second doses of AstraZeneca: The Ministry of Health has asked the autonomous communities to go all together, “giving the same information” to citizens, and that we all “respect the agreements of the Interterritorial Council and the Public Health Commission.”
The matter concerns the chaos generated with the second dose of those under 60 who were administered a first COVID-19 vaccine from AstraZeneca / Oxford- the Ministry advocates that the second be from Pfizer / BioNTech. It was able to approve it by majority in the Public Health Commission, but some communities reject it and have recommended that their citizens opt for AstraZeneca through an informed consent of the risks. The “instruction” is very clear, they say from the Ministry.
