Another figure that the first president of the Colombians gives is that there are close to 24 million complete schedules in the vaccination program that began in all areas of the country, and so on. “Reduce contagion to generate herd immunity”, highlights the Ministry of Health.
The report of the National Vaccination Plan against covid-19 with cut-off at 23:59 on November 20 indicates that the booster doses have been applied to 813,469 people over 50 years of age, continuing with the plan that was established to give a booster vaccine to populations over 60 years of age and also over 50 years of age.
Among the figures that the Government also provides is that 61,209,154 have been distributed and 53,986,327 applied. The population that received a single vaccine or single dose, now totals 4,646,257 throughout Colombia and the data for the complete schemes is 23,663,901, with a cutoff of November 20.
This is how the process of generating the digital vaccination certificate goes
The Ministry of Health and Social Protection also announced that 3,461,156 digital certificates of vaccination against covid-19 have been generated with a cut-off at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 21.
“We have been carrying out intersectoral work, with the objective that the IPS carry out the upload of information and, when said information is in our databases, the certificate can be generated”, commented the head of the Planning and Sector Studies Office of the Ministry of Health, Constanza María Engativá Rodríguez, about the process.
The official commented that if the certificate does not appear when making the query, she must approach the IPS where the vaccine was applied and request the upload of information, in order to have her digital document, which will give her more access to different commercial establishments that they are going to require it.
“It is important that all citizens take into account that this procedure must be carried out with the IPS, because that is where they must upload the information of each citizen, so that later it remains in the nominal information system, which is the PAIWEB, where we have the information of all the vaccines that we apply in Colombia ”, added Constanza María Engativá.
The Ministry of Health also continues to recommend care measures on its social networks, such as isolating and visiting the EPS when symptoms of covid-19 appear or after having contact with a positive case, and adds that it is important to take the diagnostic test .
