Galapagos to be the first immunized region in Ecuador

Quito, Apr 18 (Prensa Latina) The Galapagos Islands are preparing to be the first province to be immunized against Covid-19 in Ecuador and the first archipelago to reach that goal in Latin America.

According to Vice President of the Republic, Maria Alejandra Muñoz, the goal of vaccinating the entire population of the so-called enchanted islands before the end of the current administration, on May 24, could be achieved with the arrival of 40,000 doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines.

The vice president said that authorities will end the two-shot inoculation process of all people over 18 years of age with this shipment.

Muñoz made this announcement during the Extended Cabinet meeting held in the port city of Guayaquil.
