Since vaccination began in Bolivia in late January, to date, five million doses have been given against Covid-19 in an effort to achieve herd immunity and reduce the effects of the waves this pandemic brings with it.
According to the Ministry of Health, 5,330,625 doses between the first and second components have been applied by the manufacturers Sinopharm, Sputnik V, Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson.
It is estimated that 60 percent of the vaccinable population will be vaccinated with the Sinopharm vaccine and 14 percent with the Johnson & Johnson Janssen single dose.
The goal is to vaccinate 7.2 million Bolivians over the age of 18, which is why about 15 million are needed when the two doses are used to reduce the risk of complications.
According to the official report, 3,047,628 health workers, teachers, the elderly, those over the age of 18 and pregnant women received the first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine and the second dose was applied to 2,282,997.
To date, 31 percent of the target, 2.2 million, and 42 percent have been vaccinated with one dose, 3 million, with the full schedule, first and second doses.
It was announced that a new batch of the second dose of Sputnik V will arrive from Russia on August 27th for the stragglers.
With this scheme, more than a week is met without the use of the second booster dose, as the last batch of Sputnik V was used up two days after it was distributed to the various installed vaccination centers.
