Long queues for Covid Certificates at Son Espases Hospital in Palma.

A Covid Certificate can be obtained via the IB-Salut Appointment App, but many elderly people who don’t have access to the internet or are unable to download the App went to Son Espases Hospital in person to collect their Covid Certificates.

Those who made an appointment in advance were also kept waiting because the facilities were completely saturated.
