The ex-president Martin Vizcarra received this Sunday the first dose against the COVID-19 from the Pfizer laboratory, despite the fact that he had already been irregularly immunized with the Sinopharm vaccine, during the month of October, of a batch destined for the medical personnel in charge of the clinical study at the Universidad Peruana Cayetano Heredia.

Due to his irregular vaccination, the Congress of the Republic constitutionally charged and disqualified former President Martín Vizcarra, former Minister of Health Pilar Mazzetti and former Foreign Minister Elizabeth Astete from the exercise of public functions. In the case of the former head of state, this decision by Parliament will prevent him from assuming the post of congressman next July, despite being the most voted candidate in the General Elections on April 11.
