The President of the Republic President Francisco Sagasti has affirmed that the COVID-19 vaccine constitutes the best defense against the pandemic.

In an interview with Latina TV channel, the Head of State announced that he will be immunized with the vaccine from China's laboratory Sinopharm to prove citizens that it is safe.

As the top official recalled, since 1796, when the physician doctor Edward Jenner administered the first vaccine against smallpox to an eight-year-old boy, these have been used to defend lives and prevent diseases such as polio and measles.
