Peru's Prime Minister Anibal Torres
on Wednesday urged Peruvians to continue getting vaccinated against COVID-19, noting that the pandemic is not over yet.
Torres remarked that taking care of himself and his family is one of his daily responsibilities. Therefore, he has followed the recommendations of the Ministry of Health (Minsa)
and received the fourth dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
According to the Cabinet chief, getting the fourth dose is necessary to stop the spread of COVID-19.
"We cannot let infections spread further," he emphasized.
The fourth dose was first administered to people over 70 years of age, then to those over 50 years, and is now available for those over 40 years, immunosuppressed patients, those over 18 years with comorbidities, and members of the professional health care community, who have received the third dose at least five months ago.
According to Minsa, the rollout of the fourth dose will be carried out as the vaccination coverage progresses across the country and as gaps are closed.
