With the vaccination +70 and +75 concluded among the residents of the City, from this Tuesday at 8 o’clock the registration will open, via web, for the adults over 65 years of age. According to official data (Statistics and Censuses of the City) it is a population of around 140 thousand inhabitants. This will be Stage 3 of the vaccination plan that follows the guidelines of the National Ministry of Health. And it was reported that the first shifts will be awarded for Tuesday.
The City sold out most of the vaccines it had available on Friday. But on Sunday he received 54,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines that arrived the same day on a KLM flight. A total of 799,000 doses were provided by the Covax Global Access for Vaccines fund (an agreement promoted by the WHO and signed by 172 countries). Usually the City receives 7% of the total; this time the percentage was somewhat lower, 6.3%.
AstraZeneca’s has a simpler distribution logistics than Sputnik V, basically due to its conservation and the type of equipment it requires for it. The first (like that of Chinese origin, Sinopharm) is kept cold between 2 and eight degrees (a commercial refrigerator and even home) and the second, at -18 degrees “for all stages of storage and transport, from the moment of production until its use “, according to the memorandum of technical guidelines for vaccination against Covid published by the Ministry of Health of the Nation.
To these from AstraZeneca are added the Sputnik V, which arrive this Monday. From this shipment – with a total of 800,000 first doses – the City should receive around 56,000 vaccines. In other words, between the two, I would have the necessary amount to apply 80% of those over 65 years of age.
