Peru Vaccination Plan?

Postby IntiPeque » Thu Jan 14, 2021 8:37 pm

The last I heard, Peru was expecting to receive enough vaccine to vaccinate 3/4 of the country ( +1 as beep beep won't need his) sometime in the first quarter of 2021 & carry out vaccinations during the election at polling places.

Any more news on this? I imagine the cold storage requirements of the Pfizer vaccine may complicate matters.

So far the plan is this.

In the first place, the vaccine is viewed as an emergency necessity, so the state will assume all costs, and laboratories are prohibited from importing and commercializing the vaccine in 2021. This seems to be a global standard.

The first lot of vaccines, bought from the Chinese company Sinopharm, will arrive later this month. They require a cold chain, but not the extremely cold temperatures as others vaccines, requiring a storage temperature of 2 to 8 degrees.

Fase 1 of vaccination, which is set to begin this month, will include public and private sector health workers, military personnel, firefighters, sanitation workers, and - interestingly - people who will be convoked to work the tables for the upcoming election.

Fase 2 will include adults older than 60, people with comorbidity, native comunities, workers at prisons. At the end of phase two (shouldn't that actually be phase 3?) will be those between 18 to 59 years of age.

Vaccinators will treat 90 people in 6 hour shifts.

Finally, light at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks Alan - I hope it all goes according to plan.

It will be interesting to see how & when travel restrictions between various countries will change once a significant number of people worldwide are vaccinated. I remember having the yellow fever vaccination certificate - I can imagine something similar being required for COVID.

A vaccine from the folks who, recklessly, let out the virus in the first place? I wonder how long they have had a vaccine. The timing of its release seems awfully odd. Not sure I will be opting for that one.

Thought I'd add some more dots to connect for those who like to pass their time doing such things and might be running low or are looking for a specific dot to finally tie everything all together.
