In these vaccination sweeps, the anticovid vaccine from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer is applied to people 16 years of age and older who reside in these circuits.
"Next week vaccination sweeps will be announced on 8-6, 8-9 and 8-10", as indicated by the Vice Minister of Labor and Labor Development, Roger Tejada, this Thursday morning.
It is about the district of San Miguelito, sectors of Panama North and Panama East.
In these days of vaccination by sweeping, the anticovid vaccine
from the pharmaceutical company Pfizer
is applied to people 16 years of age and older. Those who are between 12 and 16 years old, must go to their parents or guardians, and certify that they are a chronic patient or that they have a disability. In case the disability is evident, it will not require documents.
Tejada explained that, although the intention is to make sweeps nationwide, they cannot be done all at once, due to logistics issues. However, he added that sweeps will be announced in different areas shortly.
To date, vaccination sweeps have been carried out in Taboga, on the 7-2 circuit in Los Santos, and in the Juan Díaz district. At this time, vaccines
-19 are being applied, through this methodology, in circuits 2-1 (Penonomé), 4-1 (David), 6-2 (Los Pozos, Parita and Pespe), 6-3 (Las Minas, Ocú and Santa María), 9-2 (La Mesa, Las Palmas and Soná), 9-4 (Atalaya, Mariato, Montijo and Río de Jesús), 8-7 (Ancón, Bella Vista, Bethania, Calidonia , Curundú, San Felipe, Santa Ana, Pueblo Nuevo and El Chorrillo) and 8-8 (Don Bosco, Parque Lefevre and Río Abajo).
This modality is implemented in Panama, due to the number of doses of Pfizer
that have arrived in the country in recent days.
Most of those who come to apply the doses of anticovid vaccine
are young people between 20 and 30 years old, who for months have been asking to lower the vaccination age, considering that they are the economically active population and that they must go out daily to support themselves. to their homes.
