With these data, the country achieves significant coverage in first doses in the vaccinable population.

“The work of the Caja’s vaccinating teams allows new people to start, complete or reinforce their immunization schedule against Covid-19 every week, using vaccines that have proven effective in reducing the risk of suffering from severe complications and the risk of death due to this disease,” detailed Diana Paniagua Hidalgo of the Caja’s Epidemiological Surveillance.

In addition to the placement of third doses, the Caja teams continue with the application of pediatric doses and first doses in people who have not yet started their regimen.

This past Monday, the country commented a new “vacunatón” (vaccination program) with the arrival last week of a donation of some one million doses from the United States and th announcement of the donation of another one million doses from Spain.

In total, Costa Rica has received more than 3 million doses against Covid-19 thanks to donations from the governments of the United States, Spain, Canada, the Dominican Republic and Austria.
