Starting next Monday, July 5, patients with chronic diseases will be able to schedule their vaccination appointment against COVID-19, through Panama Solidario.
The Ministry of Health (Minsa) of Panama indicated that, if you are not registered as a chronic patient, you must certify yourself at http://panamadigital.gob.pa, Vaccination option.
Steps to register as a chronic patient:
1. Enter Panama Digital.
2. Select Vaccination menu.
3. Once in your profile, search for Pathology, and click on Certificate Request.
4. Copy the link and send it to your treating doctor, who must fill out the information and certify it.
The patient will be able to know if he is certified, since in the pathology section, he will find a green hook, next to his chronic disease, in case it is not green it means that he must request his certification from the doctor, following the steps detailed above.
