The health authorities will use China’s CoronaVac and US-made Pfizer immunizer for adults over 50 years of age and personnel highly exposed to SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus until Friday.

The vaccines will also be applied to immunocompromised or immunosuppressed people starting with teenagers over 12 years of age, in all cases after six months have elapsed since the previous dose, the source said.

The special vaccination will also offer the opportunity to the rest of the population to complete other stages of the immunization campaign, such as first doses, second and third booster, through available products.

The groups prioritized for this purpose are children between five and 11 years old, young people from 12 to 17, pregnant adolescents and citizens over 18 years of age.
