Citizens go to health centers to get the first and second doses of anti-COVID-19
Citizens adapt to the new vaccination process against COVID-19 in health centers in Guayaquil. Some have visited today out of ignorance more than two schools from the electoral register are now closed.
Since last Monday, coronavirus vaccination has been carried out in the health centers of the Ministry of Public Health (MSP) because the majority of the population has been vaccinated and because electoral roll sites are not required as before. District 8 health coordinator, Dr. Alexa Zambrano, explained that in Guayaquil, Duran and Samborondon there are 115 health centers that will be licensed by the MSP for immunization.
On a tour of this newspaper, he confirmed that more than a dozen health centers have facilities and personnel to administer vaccines, but today in Guaismo Sur, in the health center of the Granada cooperative, they made it clear that they still had not been vaccinated, which is being organized in the next few days. Those who came today to ask about vaccines have been made clear that they will be put on a list to contact because in biomaterials like AstraZeneca a 10-person ration must be completed.
While in the health center on Francisco Segura Street and Quito Street, he was vaccinated today with first doses of AstraZeneca and Cancino, as well as second doses of Pfizer, Sinovac and AstraZeneca. Medical workers have made it clear that they only vaccinate those over the age of 18, which has not yet coordinated with school staff to send their students between the ages of 12 and 15.
Jacinta Lopez, a resident of Esteros, said she went to the Amaryllis Fuentes school and saw a large sign saying that since Monday, September 13, the only vaccination is in health centers. I didn’t know, I didn’t check that these centers are actually closed, I just looked at the electoral register and went. I remembered there was a dispensary here and took a taxi because I didn’t want to miss my second dose from my AstraZeneca appointment.”
At the same vaccination point, another 30 people lined up to get their doses. Some have been looking for the first doses of Pfizer, but medical personnel have made it clear that at the moment there are only CanSino and AstraZeneca for the first doses. An exclusive vaccination area has been created. Patients entered the consultation through another door far away. There they indicated that he showed up until 2:00 pm.
In the Popular Bastion type C health centre, the area for immunization is larger, so more people attended. There they receive students from neighboring educational institutions so that they can get their vaccination without any inconvenience. At this point, it was indicated that the parents of the minors must go because they must sign a permit to be able to apply the potion.
And at Sauces 3 Health Center, it was also indicated that vaccination against COVID-19 is only carried out until noon due to the fact that the doses are running out. Residents of this sector indicated that there is a high acceptance of immunization, so yesterday they had to get up early to take their turn.
In addition to the health centers, there are still seven vaccination points in Guayaquil Duran and Samborondon. They are Mucho Lot 1, at José Joaquín de Olmedo Airport, at Modelo Stadium, at Terminal 25 Julio in Metrovía and at the University of Guayaquil School of Architecture; The Duran Convention Center and the Samborondón Coliseum. The municipality of Guayaquil administers three of them.
Najeeb Shajnebar, Head of Municipal Vaccination Logistics, explained that the dose allocation remained the same as before the change in the vaccination plan strategy. At the Estadio Modelo, in Mucho Lote 1 and at the Metrovía 25 de Julio Terminal, more than 1,500 daily doses of the four available vaccines are delivered.
He explained that the vaccination in Solca is also maintained for his patients or their families.
