Until now, CNVE considers SARS-CoV-2 to be a shield against corona virus infection, even from two dose products used in this country – Pfizer / BioNTech, AstraZeneca and Moderna.
However, in a new estimate, it is estimated that for those over 12 it will be divided into three parts, two basic plans and four months after the second injection.
In this regard, Leandra Abarca and Diana Paniagua from the Epidemiological Surveillance of the Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS), based on the Integrated Vaccine System (SIVA) as of March 14, have pending a second dose over a period of more than four months used by 420 thousand 888 million 12-year-olds.
In terms of age groups, SIVA figures show that 131,436 adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17, 112,150 million between the ages of 18 and 57, and those aged 58 and over 177,302 have not yet been used.
Abarka stressed that vaccines are safe and effective in reducing complications such as long-term hospitalization and death created by Govt-19.
On his side, Paniagua urged people who have not yet been vaccinated or who have a second or third dose pending access to vaccination points.
Paniagua said that as part of the second phase of the reinforcement strategy: all against Govt-19, to facilitate it, CCSS immunization teams go to companies and in some communities they carry out house-to-house sweeps.
He pointed out that vaccines have been opened in all health areas, of which 37 companies can request an appointment through the company’s website, which has arranged 25,000 visits this week, with only 7,041 remaining today, tomorrow and Saturday.
SIVA data show that from the beginning of the campaign on December 24, 2020, to this Monday, CCSS vaccination groups have vaccinated nine million 790 thousand 312 vaccines against Govt-19.
In total, four million 273 thousand 569 corresponded to the first part, three million 892 thousand 636 to the second and one million 624 thousand 107 to the third part, used as reinforcement for those over 12 years of age. .
According to SIVA statistics, Costa Rica accounts for 89 percent of first-dose use over the age of five, followed by 81.8 and 33.8.
