“These days of unemployment in some cities prevent people from looking for a health center because they cannot move for various reasons that prevent their migration, which has led to a drop in vaccination rates,” he said in an interview with Bolivia -TV.

He stated that an average of 40,000 doses are given each day, but in the past few days it has been over 20,000 doses; This will be detrimental to the achievement of the goals set and therefore the efforts of health workers will be redoubled.
