The Government Innovation Authority (AIG) announced that from this Saturday, August 7, the appointment scheduling for the application of second doses of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine will be resumed.
This is because more than 160 thousand doses of this formula are expected to arrive early this Sunday. A total of 80 thousand people must be vaccinated, because they fulfilled their immunization time interval.
They must be attentive to their emails and / or verified through the Panama Solidario platform .
It is expected that next week double the doses that will be received tomorrow will arrive.
Currently in Panama, AstraZeneca doses are being placed on men over 30 years old and women over 50 years old, who sign up as volunteers .
To register you must access https://astrazeneca.fluyapp.com/, and complete your data. Once the appointment dates are available, you can verify the day, time and place of vaccination through https://vacunas.panamasolidario.gob.pa/verificate/.
The health authorities enabled other rapid vaccination centers to apply AstraZeneca to the volunteers, in the provinces of Chiriquí, Los Santos and Herrera, Veraguas, Coclé and the province of Colón.
Despite the fact that Panama is in the process of vaccination against COVID-19, the use of masks continues to be essential as they represent protection above 80%.
