As an expat newly relocated to Panama from the U.S., I am especially grateful for your diligent protocols. I was fortunate to receive my second dose of the Pfizer vaccine last Thursday at Roman Fernando Stadium, and was so pleased to see the First Lady of Panama there on the front lines helping to register people for the vaccines. I am so proud to call Panama my new home.
