From January to date, more than 3 million doses of the anticovid vaccine have been administered. Vaccination by sweeping is currently being carried out for a greater range.
The Minister of Health of Panama, Luis Francisco Sucre
, indicated that decisions on face-to-face classes and large celebrations such as Christmas and Carnival will depend on achieving community immunity between the months of November and December.
Likewise, the lifting of mobility restrictions also depends on this measure.
"If in November and December we reach community immunity, we could be making some decisions to do what we all want, which is to free ourselves completely and be able to mobilize wherever we want and until whatever time we want," Sucre
He explained that the theme of the celebrations has been put on the table, and they are being studied depending on how the situation evolves.
From January 20 to date, 3.03 million doses of the anticovid vaccine
have been applied in the country; 2.28 million from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer
and 517 thousand from the AstraZeneca
formula. Currently sweeping vaccination is carried out at the national level, from 16 years of age onwards, for a greater scope.
Considering this possibility, the Ministry of Education of Panama is preparing for a possible return to the classrooms.
