President Nayib Bukele announced that starting this Wednesday, April 28, three self-service vaccination centers against COVID-19 will be opened. Salvadorans can now schedule their appointment to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Those with appointments will get vaccinated without getting out of the vehicle.

The different self-service COVID-19 vaccination centers have the necessary conditions to operate under strict biosafety protocols. The auto-services centers are in La Gran Vía, San Salvador, and the cities of Santa Ana and San Miguel.

“The Government President Nayib Bukele continues with efforts to guarantee the health of the Salvadoran population,” El Salvador press secretary.

As of today, anyone over 55 years old can make an appointment and get vaccinated. The president assured that the age group for vaccination remains in force, for the moment. However, this new form of care to immunize the target population will allow the process to continue to develop more quickly.

The goal of the Salvadoran government is to vaccinate 4.5 million Salvadorans before the end of the year to achieve herd immunity.

According to the Government website, as of today, a total of 833,959 people have received at least one vaccine dose. Fifty-eight thousand have received both doses.
