It is Saturday In different parts of the country, the parents of the VacunaMe network, children at risk, mobilized to ask for the approval of vaccines against the coronavirus for children under 18 years of age.
On Buenos Aires the call was in Plaza de Mayo. The claim is federal and that is why there will also be participation from other provinces such as Mendoza, Santa Fe, La Pampa and Tucumán.
The claim of the families is for the doses against the coronavirus for minors with disabilities and comorbidities.

“We sent letters to all the governors of all the provinces, a shower of letters documenting Minister Carla Vizzotti. We made a request for solidarity to the US embassy and to Pfizier. We have been putting our bodies all these days, going out everywhere to try to make them listen to us and put them on our shoulders to bring vaccines for our children, ”claimed Carolina Di Martino. Her son, Bauti, 12, has common variable immunodeficiency.
“We don’t want them locked up anymore, we don’t want them to regress any more. We want a decent life for them, because it is their right and they deserve it ”, he added.
