LOOK: Mandatory vaccination card and the keys to the rules that change from this Friday, December 10
More than 19,490,513 people are vaccinated, with an average of 270 thousand doses applied per day.
Although it is an important advance, it is necessary to continue with the process because the gap of unvaccinated is still of more than 8 million people without any dose and 5 and a half million of those who only have one vaccine. In both cases, it is a population vulnerable to becoming infected and transmitting the virus.
To this is added that the WHO has confirmed that the duration of the immunity of the vaccine is six months after you have received the second vaccine (or the single dose in the case of the Janssen vaccine). This world body has also pointed out that in the pandemic advances at two speeds: that of those vaccinated that can be reinfected and that present moderate symptoms; and of those that were not vaccinated and that represent el 80% and 90% of the sick with serious infections, hospitalizations and deaths.
It is in this context that as of tomorrow, Friday, December 10, It will be mandatory to present the vaccination card, with the two vaccines, to enter closed public spaces.
As reported by the Minsa, the objective is to avoid an increase in infections due to the end of the year celebrations and to protect the population from the possible arrival of the Omicron variant.
