Much like the UK, the vaccines will be rolled out to people in order of priority. Those demographics will be contacted by their health centre or they will be able to book via telephone or online.

Local press say a large amount of the population will be vaccinated by May, with healthcare officials predicting that "in June 70 per cent of the Balearic population can be vaccinated.
