“We are giving a month for people over 45 years of age who make interprovincial trips to have the two doses of vaccine. Because although the vaccine is voluntary, no citizen has the right to infect another citizen. By not being vaccinated, the chances of contagion are greater ”, he expressed during the press conference from the PCM.
The Health Minister also reminded the population that they do not have any vaccine, they become more vulnerable to becoming infected and generating a serious disease. “If you travel in an interprovincial bus, which has to travel several hours, with a person sitting next to you, you have the right to have less chance of being infected.”
