According to Cardozo, they plan to carry out about 700 vaccinations per day.
“I just wanted to tell you that this is the vaccination point of the city in this first stage of doses that arrive. Also in the other 24 provincial hospitals in the interior the vaccines will arrive tonight, ”said the governor.
He indicated that 10,600 doses will arrive this Monday and that on January 4 the rest will arrive until the 21,900 agreed upon.
And he explained that the vaccination includes 5 people “because the vaccine, since it is opened, has a durability of half an hour.”
“We started with those who risked their lives for all Cordoba,” he said, adding that “we must continue to take care of distance and the chinstrap.”
In this sense, he said that he will not be vaccinated in this first round of vaccines and explained why: “I do not get vaccinated for two reasons, first, because the priority is the health personnel and I am not going to take a dose from No one, except the one who is taking risks all day, can take care of myself a little longer ”.
“And second, because I am over 60 years old, which is not yet authorized. But when I can, I will be able to do it, its reliability is guaranteed, ”said the governor.
He also stated that 98% of doctors in the province, both in the public and private sectors, are willing to get the vaccine.
“If you ask me, all vaccines are good and have gone through the verification process, for me it is important that we can begin,” he added.
