The Regional Health Department also informs that “all residents, from 5 years of age, regardless of age, can access the Region’s vaccination centers, on the days and times announced. “special” times were defined for vaccinating children from 5 to 11 years of age, however, as it is not possible to access the vaccination centers at this “special” time, there is availability to administer pediatric vaccines during the “general” opening hours of the vaccination centers.
