It will be from Monday, April 18 and will target people over 12 years old who have received reinforcements four months or more ago.
Neuquen County will begin implementing a second booster of vaccination against COVID-19 starting Monday, April 18, based on the recommendation of the National Immunization Committee (CONAIN) and approved by the Federal Board of Health (COFESA). This way, as defined by the county health department, all people over the age of 12 who received their first booster dose four months or more ago will be in a position to approach the nearest vaccination center from that date.
In this regard, the Minister of Health, Andrea Biffi noted: “We continue to work to build herd immunity and put the importance of vaccination in all age groups on the agenda. It is important that people over 50 years of age, 12 years of age and those with severe conditions be vaccinated. In this way we extend the protection of the vaccine for a longer period and avoid dangerous forms of the disease.”
Likewise, Bev confirmed that the county will begin implementing the second booster for all people over the age of 12 starting next Monday. “Being responsible for our vaccination, as our Governor Omar Gutierrez indicated, we take care of our health, our work, our community activities and everything we heal through vaccination in the context of the epidemic,” he stressed, recalling that it is also important to complete the regular vaccination schedule.
It should be clarified that those people who have not yet received their first boosters can approach any of the county’s existing vaccination machines, without the need for a previous shift. Vaccines against COVID-19 can be given with those on the regular schedule.
