New vaccination plan

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

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 immunization centers have the option of calling Line 113, so that a brigade can come to their home and apply the doses.
