"The vaccine against Covid-19 will be applied to children aged three and four to avoid serious cases of disease and mortality," the entity detailed on its official website.

The statement itself detailed that the inoculation began in the cities of Quito, Loja, Zamora and Machala and added that for the rest of the country the process will begin on February 21.

Anticovid immunization in infants between three and four years old will be done with the Chinese Sinovac vaccine and two doses will be applied, with an interval of between 28 and 42 days between them.

The Ecuadorian Health portfolio reported that "the decision was made once the Advisory Commission on Immunization Practices (CAPI) analyzed the international scientific evidence and the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO)" and it was this commission that who recommended the application of the Chinese drug.

Likewise, the Ministry stressed that the Vaccination Plan has at its disposal the necessary amount of biologicals, supplies and personnel to develop the process with the established parameters and the necessary quality.

So far, more than 30.8 million doses have been applied in Ecuador and more than 14.7 million have been vaccinated with at least one dose, of which more than 13.4 million (about 77 percent of the population) have completed their schedule.
