The vaccination unit at Centeno Governor’s Hospital continues to work with the same intensity as before, administering the COVID-19 vaccine to children who must complete a mandatory program, as well as pneumonia and flu vaccines. Regional Manager Nelly Urruchuaga spoke to InfoPico Radio 99.9 and reassured that they have the vaccine available.
On COVID-19, Nellie said: “We continue to get vaccinated and it works really well because people come in for the fourth dose, the fifth dose, the sixth dose, some even the seventh dose; about 12 people a day coming in. “”Getting vaccinated is very important because antibodies wear off after four to six months and it is recommended to get vaccinated again after that. In addition to Pediatric Moderna, we have Pfizer and bivalents.”
“During this cold season, there has been an increase in the number of people vaccinated against the new crown, flu and pneumonia. We are working hard to provide health manuals for all personnel who handle food.”
Not long ago, the health department asked children to complete a shortened vaccination schedule; Nellie told us, “We built a platform where we had information on all the children and a campaign so they could come and get vaccinated, These programs are currently being completed, either in the vaccination center of the hospital or in the “health center” “The program is mandatory because it is the only way to prevent the disease. “
Hours to go to the center: Monday through Friday 6:00 am to 2:00 pm, Saturday and holidays 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.
