At CABA alone, it has more than 100,000 affiliates and affiliates over the age of 80 and 300,000 over the age of 70, and until now we were not called to vaccinate as reported by the Port Government.» PAMI is currently carrying out the vaccination campaign in more than 2,000 residences in the Territory of Bonaerense.
