Health insurances allow mass vaccination centers from Monday

Short-term social security health funds will open mass vaccination centers with extended hours starting next Monday, Health Minister Jeyson Auza reported.

“Today we have to announce that from Monday each of the administrating institutions (health insurance companies) will open a minimal vaccination center, where they have a regional one that offers their services not only to their insured persons, but also to the uninsured population,” said Auza at a press conference .

Bolivia has the highest number of infections, but has a mortality rate of 0.7%, which is why it is trying to speed up vaccination.

The Minister of Health reiterated that from now on, health insurers must consider setting up multiple vaccination centers in the regions where they offer their services so that the population can have hope.
