The Ministry of Health will reinforce vaccination with the arrival of a new batch of more than 54,000 doses against COVID-19

The Ministry of Health (Minsa) through the Expanded Immunization Program (PAI) reports the arrival of 54,340 new doses of bivalent vaccines which will reinforce the National Vaccination Program, which continues to be developed by the National Government, as stated by Itzel S. de Hewitt, national coordinator of the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI).

Hewitt indicated that this new batch of vaccines will be distributed as follows: 6 thousand doses will correspond to the population of children from 6 months to 4 years, 18 thousand doses for the population of children from 5 years to 11 years of age and 30, 340 doses for the population of 12 years and adults.

Hewitt said. “You must not lower your guard, not only with the vaccine against COVID-19 but also against the vaccine against influenza, which this year we have registered deaths.”

“We have had the influenza vaccine available and accessible in all the Health Regions, since we have had enough since the third week of April where we received 1 million 567 thousand doses but the population has relaxed for what I ask to the population that goes to the Vaccination Centers to fight together the respiratory viruses that circulate in the environment”, Hewitt pointed out.
