To date, according to the CCSS, 312,000 vaccines have been applied between first and second doses.

More vaccinations

It is estimated that the vaccines from AstraZeneca to arrive between the last week of April and the first weeks of May, in addition to vaccines acquired through the Covax mechanism of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO).

Solís explained that with the entry of more doses from different pharmaceuticals, the National Vaccination Commission, of the Ministry of Health, would review the vaccination scheme to determine if a rethinking of the cycles is appropriate.
