Prime Minister Violeta Bermudez on Wednesday affirmed that all vaccines purchased by the Government are safe, effective, and rely on all international support.

Within this framework, the Cabinet chief stressed that 
the immunization process is carried out successfully nationwide.

"We reiterate to the population that all vaccines purchased by the Peruvian Government are safe, effective, and rely on international support, including the World Health Organization. We must be calm because we have been receiving vaccines that protect our lives," she expressed.

The Prime Minister reported that more than 9.7 million doses have been administered, adding that more than 3.7 million people are already fully vaccinated; that means 15.23% of the initial target population.

"The situation in Arequipa confirms the improvement as there is reduction in the number of infections and deaths. In Loreto, there is a slight downward trend, but Health Ministry teams, in coordination with the regional government, have been following up on the situation,” she pointed out.

Remarks were made during a press conference held at the Government Palace in Lima.
