The Ministry of Health revealed this Monday night Resolution 195 in which the 192,000 doses of the Chinese vaccine are assigned and distributed Sinovac who arrived last Saturday, taking into account that the priority population is the cities of Leticia, Puerto Nariño, Inírida and Mitú, as well as front-line health workers and those over 80 located in long-stay centers.

These departments that share a border with Brazil were prioritized by the presence of the P.1 variant of Sars-CoV-2 in the neighboring country, which has already been found in at least nine cases in Leticia.

For this purpose, the resolution allocates 40,355 doses, of which 22,741 will be for the Amazon, 12.402 for Guainia and 5,212 for Vaupes. These will serve to cover 71 percent of the population of legal age of Leticia, 37 percent of Puerto Nariño, 66 percent of Inírida and 31 percent of Myth.

These vaccines, according to the Minister of Health, Fernando Ruiz, will begin to be distributed this Tuesday.

(What’s more: They confirm that this Tuesday the first Chinese vaccines arrive in Leticia)

In the same way, the resolution says that taking into account that the technical and network capacities of the departments taken into account in this delivery, the distribution will be made in partial dispatches according to the progress of the National Vaccination Plan in each region and with the agreement of local authorities.

In this sense, it was considered that of the 192,000 doses of Sinovac, 68,951 will be used to immunize human talent belonging to stage I located in municipalities that are not capitals or are part of metropolitan areas in 29 departments.
