The Ministry of Health (Minsa) reported that until this Wednesday, December 22, the number of people vaccinated against COVID-19 with at least one dose amounts to 24’275,926. Meanwhile, the total of citizens vaccinated with two doses is 21’073,320, until 6 am today.

To date, Peru has received more than 25 million vaccines from Sinopharm, more than 31 million from Pfizer, and more than 4 million from AstraZeneca. All these are applied according to the programming by age groups established by the Government after vaccinating with priority health personnel, older adults and members of the National Police, Armed Forces and Firefighters.

Both the Sinopharm, Pfizer and AstraZeneca vaccines must be given in two doses to protect a person against COVID-19.

The vaccination process in Peru began on Tuesday, February 9, in the main health centers in Lima and Callao. A digital tool implemented by the Minsa allows access to information on the progress of vaccination. You just have to click HERE to check the number of people vaccinated with both doses or with only one.

New vaccination plan

The Government established that on April 16 a new vaccination plan against COVID-19 begins, with the aim of vaccinating the elderly first.

To do this, the Executive implemented the Pongo el Hombro platform, so that people can know the place, the date and the time when they will be vaccinated against the coronavirus (COVID-19).

Currently, the population from 12 years of age and older is being vaccinated in Lima, Callao and some regions of the country.

Seniors who cannot travel to their vaccination centers have the option of calling Line 113, so that a brigade can come to their home and apply the doses.
