In the middle of this month, children from 5 years old are scheduled to be vaccinated.

Vaccination against COVID-19 is maintained with interest in adolescents from 12 years old and backward groups in health centers, educational institutions and three municipal centers that have reported lower attendance in recent days.

The staff working on these vaccines noted that because many teens have already attended the vaccination with their parents, demand has decreased in recent days, as have people going for the first time or boosting dose such as Sinovac, AstraZeneca, Pfizer or the single-dose CanSino app.

Today, at the Mucho Lote 1 vaccination center, in the north, dozens of mothers arrived with their babies and a certificate of special approval for the Pfizer vaccine.

Balerio Estacio resident Bella Jimenez commented that her two children, 13 and 15, who attend Tránsito Amaguaña School, were unable to attend the call, so she took them a certain way so that the doses could be applied.

Similarly, the retarded came to the vaccination center, such as a 59-year-old citizen with mental problems. His sister commented that the doctor did not give him permission to vaccinate because he was having a crisis, as the months went by he was able to recover and give him permission.

In the third week of October, children aged 5 to 11 are scheduled to be vaccinated, according to the government.

The Minister of Health, Ximena Garzón Villalba, has asked residents who have not yet been vaccinated to go to health centers to receive their own doses, to prevent a possible outbreak of COVID-19, due to the relaxation that has been detected in the country.

There is a slight increase in infections at the community level because a proportion of the population over the age of 18 has not received the vaccine. We have not yet reached 85% no community immunity. As much as the government takes care of us, protects us and provides us with vaccines, we need to take shared responsibility. “If we ease, restrictive measures must be taken,” the minister said last week.
