Vaccination policy

Spain has no mandatory vaccines whilst pressure from health authorities is very high. Vaccine uptake between children is around 95 percent and it is around 40 percent between adults and elderly. Only 12 percent of the health workers are vaccinated.


Unvaccinated children in Spain are allowed at any preschool (nursery, daycare, kindergarten) and school grade. It may occasionally happen that private schools would not admit unvaccinated children.

Adverse event following immunisation public reporting system

Pharmacovigilance Services in Spain were created in 1980 and collect about 1% of adverse drug effects but the vaccines adverse effect collection amounts to less than 1%. Health Authorities and pharmaceutical companies do not recognise vaccines adverse effects and there is no compensation program. Only about 0,1% of the adverse events go to court and are recognized.

Since 2008 pharmaceutical companies started supplying more information on the contraindications and undesiderable effects of vaccines and about their composition. Unfortunaltey most of the people are unaware of that.
