1.2 million doses of covid were given in 16 months

The undersecretary of Public Health, José Luis Satdjian, and the president of Antel, Gabriel Gurméndez, toured the vaccination posts installed in the Antel Arena last Friday, on their last active day. “It is a day of great emotion, because we turn a page and close a stage in the vaccination plan”, Satjian said. Gurmendez explained that nearly 1,200,000 doses of vaccines were administered anti-COVID-19.

As for the vaccination center located in the antel Arena, that came to involve, at times of greatest influx of people, some 400 workers in the health teams, the undersecretary pointed out that it was the main one in the country, with up to 19 inoculation stations, and also emphatically thanked its officials for their performance. “The respect, the affection, the work with which the people who are vaccinated are received was part of the success of the vaccination plan,” he stressed.

For his part, Gurméndez indicated that Around 1,200,000 doses were applied at the site, he expressed his emotion at the end of a stage and recognized the effort of the staff dedicated to the task. The hierarch reported that the Antel Arena was made available to be used as a vaccination center based on a request from the President of the Republic, Luis Lacalle Pou.

Vaccination against covid will no longer be with an agenda: what will it be like from July

Satdjian said this Friday that a stage in the vaccination plan against covid-19 was closed.

The hierarch indicated that from July 1 it will not be necessary to schedule and the Vaccination for people over 18 years old will be exclusively on Tuesdays, in “conventional” vaccinations, which will be defined in the next few hours by the health authorities. In the case of children, vaccinations will be concentrated on Thursdays.

As with the rest of the vaccines (not covid), you will no longer have to register and you can go directly to the vaccination headquarters. The only difference is that, for covid, the administration of doses is concentrated in one day (one for adults and one for children) to avoid doses are spoiled.
