Re: Vaccine war with EU

The Us have paused Johnson and Johnson for the time being due to cases of blood clots..That could be another scupper in Spains vaccination roll out, not going great.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

Yes that is true Mark but we are opening up tomorrow and fingers crossed it will stay that way. :D I'd hate to think we were just going into another lockdown during the spring and summer months.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

Well no wonder people are so miffed off about not being able to leave their province when people living close to an airport can fly into another country.

Re: Vaccine war with EU

I can't help but think that if there had been no problems with the AZ supplies that the blood clotting situation would have been reported much differently by the EU and they would have been concentrating their efforts on trying to reassure people .. they have trashed it that much that i believe AZ w...

Re: Travel Covid requirements

Katy how are they managing to travel if there are restrictions. Do they not have to have some kind of documentation proof? or is that just for people entering Spain?

Re: Travel Covid requirements

It seems that he works on the English version of el pais although he resides in Spain. Maybe he has been able to use some kind of work related reason to get round restrictions, who knows..He didn't mention that he was travelling for an emergency, just that he hadn't seen his parents in such a long t...

Re: Travel Covid requirements

Yes it does Wicksey, i read it last night, i'm a bit puzzled though but that is only because i don't know what the rules of travel are when leaving Spain. Does Spain allow residents to travel to other countries in order to visit family members?

Re: Vaccine war with EU

Can you blame them, one min they are not vaccinating the over 65's with AZ then its banned for the under 60's but it's ok for those aged between 60 and 69..confidence must be at an all time low.

Re: New restrictions extended??

I think it is 1 to 14 days, people i know who were infected were showing symptoms as early as day 3 after being in contact with an infected person.

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

Yes i can fully understand that you definitely need a car living in the Countryside Lavanda, I also know exactly what you mean about car hires..If our property wasn't in the countryside and perhaps by the coast or even in a village not far from the airport i doubt we would bother looking for a car.....

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

We looked into buying a new car 2 yrs ago in Spain and went to several dealers and they all pushed the finance option, i too couldn't get my head around finance being the cheaper way to go but other forum members say it's how things are done in Spain so i guess that is how it is.. It's true that you...

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

So at least they can get on with vaccinating that group of people if they have the vaccine supplies already in the country to get on with it.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

Re: New CaixaBank fees ... time to change banks?

Caxia have taken over Bankia so i'm waiting to see what the changes are. Bankia increased their fees last year from 15e each quarter to 15e each month. Due to Covid and the travel situation I have resisted trying to change to another bank until things settle down. i also got the feeling that other b...

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

But if you die or have a serious adverse reaction which company gets the blame? Actually I suppose it doesn't matter because the pharmaceutical companies have immunity from prosecution for killing and maiming people anyway. It would only prove mix n match is a bad idea, i don't suppose any of the p...

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

Germany is going down the mix and match route...people who have had one shot of AZ are being told to get the 2nd shot with a different vaccine. It may be that Spain will suggest the same, unless there is evidence that those who did develop blood clots did so after the first shot and there was no evi...

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

FAL i tend to agree about the 70%, unless of course they have a shed load of Sputnik coming in... it's becoming more and more difficult to keep up on which age groups can have AZ, so i take it that it's now just available to those between the ages of 60 and 65? What about all those outside of this a...
