To avoid clumping, we require an appointment. Since we vaccinate the elderly against Coronavirus and we have to provide a distance between one vaccine and another, about 15 days, we start now with children from six months to one year old, pregnant women, women after childbirth, etc. This vaccination will be carried out inside the health centers – explained Municipal Health Minister.
