Since dawn, 2,000 people from Corrientes have come to the vaccination centers to receive their third, second or first dose of anticovid immunizer. There are already lines of up to 500 meters for the afternoon shift, another 2,000 attendees are expected.
The Corrientes government set up three vaccination centers for the third dose for those over 18 with an interval of four months from the second dose: the Sportivo club (July 9 between Tucumán and Buenos Aires); Faculty of Medicine (Rivadavia corner Córdoba) and the Juventus club (Chacabuco corner Ayacucho).
People cared little about waiting for hours in the oppressive heat and there were those who even showed up for the third dose without meeting the recommended age.
In addition, there are three other vaccination centers for the second dose of Sinopharm (they must have completed 28 days from the first dose) and AstraZeneca and Sputnik (60 days after the first application) at the Llano Hospital, the Pingüinos Club and the Sargento Cabral Campus .
The hours are the same for all centers from 8 am to 12 pm and from 2 pm to 5 pm. You must come with your ID and Vaccination Card.
