Vaccination will be with an open schedule, that is, you can go directly to the vaccination center without the need to have a previously assigned appointment. Rando said that people over 50 who want to take a booster dose of the covid-19 vaccination will be able to do so along with the flu. Regarding anti-coronavirus revaccination, the minister indicated that the issue is being studied by the National Vaccination Advisory Commission, without a definition in this regard.
