Costa Rica begins Covid-19 vaccination for children under five

San Jose, Oct 4 (Prensa Latina) The Covid-19 vaccination for children aged six months to five will officially start on Tuesday at all Costa Rica´s Social Security Fund (CCSS) centers.

I want to call on all parents to come our health centers for their children to be vaccinated against Covid-19, Deputy Health Minister Alexei Carrillo said in a press conference.

Both Carrillo and the CCSS President Marta Esquivel agreed upon the significance of full immunization to protect population from infecting or dying of Covid-19.

For this vaccination, the CCSS acquired, through the National Emergency Commission, the first Pfizer/BioNTech 450,000-vaccine batch, of which over 302,000 arrived in Costa Rica last week and the rest will be delivered by the end of this year.

Being approved by the National Vaccination and Epidemiology Commission, the immunization for this age group is mandatory, which means that parents, guardians and other people in charge of minors must take them to vaccination centers to receive the three respective doses.
