    The vaccine campaign against COVID-19 began formally this Monday in Costa Rica and awaits the arrival of more doses steadily. The previous week 9,750 units arrived and for this week 11,700 doses are expected, small figures compared to the projection for January.

    According to the interim logistics manager of the Costa Rican Social Security Fund (CCSS), Esteban Vega, it is planned to receive 34 trays, for a total of 33,150 weekly doses. To date, the country only receives vaccines from Pfizer, with whom it has contracted the doses for a million and a half people.

    Additionally, it is expected to inoculate half a million inhabitants with the AstraZeneca vaccine – pending approval. Another million will receive the units from the Covax mechanism of the World Health Organization (WHO). The national plan seeks to give priority to health personnel and those over 58 years of age. First responders such as firefighters and police will follow.

    Other Countries Vaccination process

    Along with Chile and Mexico, Costa Rica topped the list of Latin American and world countries to receive the vaccine. Pfizer’s formula has faced logistical complications in its distribution due to requirements such as ultra low temperature. This happened in 8 nations of the European Union that will have to slow down their vaccine projections due to logistical delays.

    “Due to a minor logistical problem, we have rescheduled a limited number of our deliveries. The logistics problem has been solved, and those deliveries are now being dispatched, “Andrew Widger, director of international media relations at Pfizer, stated.
