More than 15,000 people were treated at a vaccination day for citizens of Lerdo

A total of 15,205 people were treated in the multiple anti-COVID vaccination day, in which adults over 60 years of age in the municipality of Lerdo received their third dose. The only point of attention was the Faculty of Health Sciences (Facsa) of the Juárez University of the State of Durango (UJED), which was chaotic given the response that was recorded during the four days.

The start was on Monday, January 10, at the Facsa facilities, where not only older adults would be treated, but also 14-year-olds who would receive their first dose, as well as the elderly population who had not received no dose, and those who required a second booster dose to complete their regimen.

The day concluded on Thursday the 13th as indicated by the Federal Delegation of Development Programs in the state.

On this day, a total of 3,144 14-year-olds were treated, who received the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine, which will require a booster in a period that can range from 21 to 42 days later.

According to data from the Regional Directorate of Welfare Programs zone 03, the day with the highest attendance was Thursday, the last day of care, the date on which 1,491 young people were attended, that is, almost 50 percent of the total number of doses applied in four days, were applied in only one.

As for adults over 60 years of age, 8,025 from Ciudad Lerdo were treated, who received the AstraZeneca vaccine, regardless of which biologic they had previously received. The only indication was that it must have been six months since her last dose.

The largest day of care for this age group was Wednesday the 12th, with a total of 2,542 adults.

It should be remembered that the conditions in which the elderly were treated were the most marked during the day, since most stood in lines of more than seven blocks and waiting times of hours enduring the low temperatures that were recorded during the week coupled with fatigue.

On this vaccination day, those people who, for various reasons, had not received any doses were also treated. They, considered laggards, were treated with the CanSino vaccine. In total, 1,859 people over 18 years of age attended.

And in what corresponds to second doses or booster doses for the group of 18 years and over, a total of 2,177 people were attended.
