translated from Spanish: Cenabast entered application for authorization to import Sinovac vaccine

During this day, the Central Supply handed over the technical history of the CoronaVac vaccine, from the Sinovac laboratory, to the Institute of Public Health, so that it is evaluated by the National Regulatory Agency and then more than 10 million doses are authorized during the first trimester of 2021.So, and once the PSI authorization is available , through Article 99 which allows emergency detention of CoronaVac doses, Cenabast may begin this process, which is expected to occur during the month of January.” As Sinovac has no representation in Chile, according to the Health Code we can do the direct import and for the same reason, this afternoon we requested the ISP for emergency use authorization,” added sinovac’s director of Cenabast.La vaccine will be fully managed by Cenabast, both in internment and in storage and distribution. The CoronaVac vaccine, which must be kept refrigerated, will be kept in a Logistics Center with experience in vaccines, which meets all the corresponding quality standards and authorizations. In order for the import to occur smoothly, Cenabast signed a five-way exclusive contract with Latam, which will allow to narrow down the transfer times to maintain the quality of this product. Subsequently, the distribution of the vaccine will include the country’s Health Seremis, as estimated and mandated by the National Immunization Program (PNI), of the Ministry of Health.The director of Cenabast, Valentín Díaz, explained that “once the authorization of the PSI has been obtained, the first shipment would be received fifteen days later, there would be 2,178,000 vaccines, which successively should be repeated until 10 million doses were completed , as of March 1”.
