Panama will remain within the line of international organizations regarding the third dose of Pfizer

"Panama will remain within the line always for the benefit of the Panamanian population and the security that each one of these vaccines deserves," said Luis Sucre.
The Minister of Health, Luis Francisco Sucre, indicated this Friday that Panama will evaluate everything that international organizations say on health matters and the application of the third dose against COVID-19 from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer.

He added that in the same way, the country will maintain the guidelines that these European and North American organizations consider, as long as they are for the benefit of the citizens.

“Everything that international organizations say in the matter of health we will evaluate it, but of course, if scientists that is what they consider worldwide, PAHO, European organizations and North American organizations consider them that way, Panama will remain within of the line always for the benefit of the Panamanian population and the security that each one of these vaccines deserves,” said Sucre.

Earlier, the National Head of the Nursing Department, Eusebia Calderón de Copete, reported that a team made up of experts from the PanavaC continuous vaccination strategy, from Minsa and the Social Security Fund (CSS) will assess whether it is necessary to place a third dose of the vaccine developed by the pharmaceutical company Pfizer.

The remarks come after the Pfizer / BioNtech alliance announced Thursday that it will seek authorization from regulatory agencies in the United States and Europe for a third dose of its COVID-19 vaccine.

This announcement comes after data from a test in development showed that a third dose increases antibody levels five to ten times more against the original strain of the coronavirus and the Beta variant, first found in South Africa, compared to the first two doses, according to the text.
