The province’s Ministry of Health reported on the arrival of 38,400 vaccines from Astrazeneca to San Juan, the largest batch of doses received at one time, so far, by the province.

From the Provincial Immunization Program they highlighted that These doses will allow the development of the established vaccination schedule to continue and, in turn, to incorporate more groups.

The doses are part of the 2,119,000 Astrazeneca vaccines that the National Ministry of Health distributes throughout the country.

This is the shipment that recently arrived at the Ezeiza Airport with the vaccines whose active ingredient was produced in Argentina and which are added to the 2,785,200 doses that arrived last week, between Sputnik V and those developed jointly by the University of Oxford and AstraZeneca that were acquired both by the Covax mechanism of the WHO and in an agreement with the British pharmaceutical company.

San Juan had 38,400 doses in distribution, according to the criteria established based on the amount of population of each district.

These new doses are added to the total of 259,893 that had already reached the province, of which 215,893 have currently been applied, data recorded in the weekly vaccination report corresponding to June 1.

Of that total of doses applied, 170,502 correspond to the first dose and 45,391 to the second.
