Fourth dose for those over 50 years of age
Since May 6, the Minsa announced that people, Peruvians and foreigners, who are 50 years old or older and who have applied their third dose against COVID-19 five months ago, must go to any vaccination center or establishment of health to receive the fourth dose.
As recalled, the administration of a fourth dose was only allowed in people over 70 years of age, health personnel and immunosuppressed people, however, it was necessary to expand this age range.
