The “VacuGuagua” vaccination buses on the south of Gran Canaria all this week

The so-named “VacuGuaguas” of the Canarian Health Service, vaccination buses,  launched this weekend, in collaboration with CitySightseeing, of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, as part of a mobile activity promoting vaccinations against COVID-19 among the entire population of 12 years of age or over on Gran Canaria and Tenerife. Two tour buses, replete with silk-screens and spaces prepared for vaccinations, are touring areas of cities and towns on both capital islands, having already started last Saturday morning, August 21 in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, where it was also on Sunday between 10:00 to 14:00.

Both buses are travelling across areas of Gran Canaria and Tenerife every day this week, for a series of scheduled stops adapted to the citizens who take advantage of the opportunity to get a shot, and which may be modified depending on the influx of patients to these mobile vaccination points. The places and times for where the “Vacuguaguas” can be found is reported on a daily basis. You can check the various social media accounts for Sanidad Gobcan on Facebook, Twitter etc.

To receive the vaccine on one of these buses it is necessary that you are a resident of the Canary Islands, and can present a DNI or NIE to get onto the vehicle and, children under 16 years of age must be accompanied by their mother, father or legal guardian .

Preliminary dates for the vaccination buses arriving to the south of the island are:
