Diana Paniagua, Caja epidemiologist, explained that once this ‘vacunatón’ (vaccination) strategy is complete, the vaccinating teams will visit companies, universities and communities to increase vaccination coverage against this virus.

This second vacunatón carried out by the Caja is possible through the donation of one million doses of Pfizer vaccines by the Government of the United States.
