On June 1, according to the Minister of Health, 1,985,744 mobility passes were blocked, and as of Friday, 1,734,546 people had missed their fourth dose. That is to say that just over 250 thousand individuals went to vaccination clinics to make up for the deficit in vaccinations.

On Friday, the Ministry of Health (Minsal) released a new assessment of the country’s pandemic situation. In this regard, the officials reported more than 8,000 new confirmations in the previous 24 hours and 32,017 active instances.

The Minister of Health, María Begoña Yarza, explained that on June 1, 1,985,744 mobility passes were blocked, corresponding to people over 18 years of age who, more than six months after the third dose, did not apply the fourth.

“We currently have 1,734,546 people over the age of 18 who have not yet received their fourth dose,” said Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

As a result, over 250,000 individuals who were behind the target were vaccinated at vaccination clinics with the second booster shot.

Refreshingly, Dr. Gonzalo Cortes of the Santiago Institute for Public Health emphasized that Chile’s vaccination rate is currently at 99 percent, and everyone in the country should have a valid vaccination within six months. “We want everyone in Chile to be vaccinated as soon as possible,” said Yarza.

Finally, he said that “as long as I have my last dose before six months, which is the aim we achieved by including the fourth dose in the mobility pass, I am protected.”
