When the authorities of the Ministry of Health of Peru announced that Peruvians will receive a third dose against COVID-19, doubts were raised about how the vaccination day would be carried out and who would be the first to be vaccinated throughout the country.
To put a stop to doubts and speculation, the Minsa used its official channels on social networks to inform how they can calculate if they have already met the time to attend a vaccination. Peru already has half of its target population fully vaccinated.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I HAVE TO RECEIVE THE THIRD DOSE?
Attention, Peruvians, if you are 18 years old or older and you received your second dose more than 5 months ago, from this November 26 you will be able to receive the booster dose.
Keep in mind that you must calculate the time taking into account the date you received your second dose. To be more precise, check your vaccination card that was given to you in your first attendance. Minsa announces that people can only be vaccinated in the jurisdiction that appears on their ID
CHECK THE VACCINATION PATTERN – PUT MY SHOULDER
Find out if you are already registered in the National Register of Vaccination against COVID-19. You can also know the dates of your first and second doses, and the place where you will receive the vaccine that will protect you against the coronavirus.
If you already appear in the Register but your vaccination date is still not shown, do the consultation again in a few days. We are working to integrate the information into this unique query of the National Vaccination Register.
WHAT IS PONGO EL HOMBRO?
It is a platform that has been designed to respond to the citizens’ need for information regarding the programming assigned in the vaccination process against COVID-19. This allows you to know where, when and at what time you have to get vaccinated.
WHAT CAN I DO IF MY VACCINATION PLACE IS FAR FROM MY HOME?
Vaccination points have been located close enough to be able to serve the entire national population. Even so, if you have any problem getting to the vaccination point, you can call Line 113 of the Minsa for assistance.
