It is a measure adopted to contain the increase in cases of the coronavirus in the most vulnerable population groups, President Iván Duque, highlighted on Thursday.

Currently, 52 million vaccines have been applied in Colombia and the expectation is to close the year with 70% of the population with the complete scheme.

Immunization of the population with the booster will be carried out gradually, according to the availability of vaccines.

It began with the age group older than 70 and earlier this month it was expanded to those older than 60.
