Several months ago a platform was being promoted in which people vaccinated abroad could register to add to the data of the State, but it was discovered that many people who did not meet the condition began to register,

“People who did not necessarily meet that condition began to be registered”, stated Gabriela Jiménez, head of Immunizations of the Minsa

It is for this reason that the Minsa is planning to locate in the transport terminals to inoculate those who have not yet done so.

The deployment will also take place in areas with high pedestrian flow such as Gamarra and Mesa Redonda.
