“Hope, that is the feeling that each delivery of vaccines that enters the country causes us, since each batch strengthens the fight we have given against the pandemic. Despite this, we must continue to redouble care and not lower our guard against the situation of infections and increased hospitalization that we are facing today,” said Costa Rica President, Carlos Alvarado.

So far in April, three deliveries have been received: two from Pfizer and the first from the COVAX multilateral mechanism. This month, to date, 271,620 doses have been received.

The arrival of this batch is the basis of the vaccines to be distributed for application next week, as part of the logistics that take place with each delivery in terms of storage, freezing, and distribution, in order to ensure coverage of the immunization program.

The Government reiterates the call to maintain the health protection measures to contain the situation of COVID-19 infections that the country faces, in order not to collapse the national medical services.
