In vaccination centers in San Miguelito and Arraiján, long lines were registered very early, mostly people without an appointment.
Omar Montilla, Vice Minister of Internal Trade, explained that those who come by appointment have expedited passage and those who come without an appointment will still be vaccinated.
However, he called on citizens to register to speed up the immunization process and avoid overcrowding.

that will be used to reinforce the vaccination strategy against covid-19 that begins in these circuits.
