New vaccination plan

The Government established that a new vaccination plan against COVID-19 will begin on April 16, 2021, with the aim of immunizing older adults first.

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

Currently, the population is being inoculated from 5 years and older in Lima, Callao and in the 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 administer the doses.
