"We will vaccinate 3,000 people older than 80 years who suffer from a motor difficulty. The immunization will take place in the person's home," Ugarte said and informed that elderly people living in shelters and nursing homes will also be prioritized.
"Four million people older than 60 years should be vaccinated throughout March," the Minister added.
To vaccinate vulnerable people and security forces, the Health Ministry set up six medical points and deployed 50 mobile units throughout Lima.
Peru began this new phase of immunization a few days after receiving 50,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine. The country expects to receive the same amount of doses during each week of March until the 250,000 doses are completed.
