The doses received today will allow the National Vaccination Plan against SARS-CoV-2 to continue. This is the 24th shipment from Pfizer-BioNTech. A total of 5,942,820 doses have been received from this laboratory between December 2020 and July 2021. 

451,620 new doses of the Pfizer vaccine arrived in Chile this morning. The shipment was received by International Economic Relations Undersecretary Rodrigo Yáñez. With this shipment, the country has now received a total of 26,087,804 doses, through its agreements with Pfizer, Sinovac, AstraZeneca and Cansino. 

Undersecretary Yáñez stressed that “the possibility of a booster shot is something that is currently being examined by the Health Ministry and its advisory bodies, together with the Science Ministry. The Foreign Affairs Ministry is currently in conversation with all of the laboratories that are now sending vaccines to Chile, as well as with new laboratories that could potentially supply the country with vaccines.” 

He added that efforts will continue “in the search for alternatives in order to make the country’s immunization program more robust, resilient to change and able to face the uncertainties that arise during a pandemic such as this one.”
