García explained that it is not yet possible to say that “vaccination campaigns against these respiratory viruses have stalled,” given that data for one month are not yet available. It will be at the end of October when an “assessment” will be made to analyze the vaccination rate compared to last year.

“If we’re not going at a good pace, we’re going to have to take extraordinary steps in November to promote the agent and further facilitate access to the vaccine in places where the vaccine rate is lower,” he said.

García claimed this Monday, after noting the start of the second dose of the covid-19 vaccine against flu for people over 60 and inmates, as well as for the State Security Forces and Bodies and other professions, with the use of masks, especially by the most vulnerable. “the greatest protection and barrier”.

In this sense, he emphasized that citizens “normalized” the coronavirus, “but there is a danger”, “it is still here” and continues to cause deaths. “We hardly need to convince the elderly because they have been vaccinated from 65 to 99 percent of this booster dose. Maybe that’s where you need to convince at other ages.”

“We know we will get a raise. Last year, sentry surveillance systems found no cases of flu; This does not mean that it does not exist, but that the system does not detect it. It has already detected 288 cases this year. “This means that the virus is already here, circulating and will be strong,” he said.
