Costa Rica negotiates purchase of third dose of Covid-19 vaccines

Costa Rica, a country of 5.1 million inhabitants, has signed a contract with Pfizer for 6 million doses of vaccines, another with AstraZeneca for 1 million doses, and an agreement with the Covax mechanism for 2 million doses would cover the entire population subject to vaccination by 2021.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The Government of Costa Rica announced Thursday that it is negotiating with Pfizer to purchase covid-19 vaccines to apply a third booster dose to people over 58 years old and first responders.

"The country is in a negotiation process to secure access to covid-19 vaccines that could be occupied in 2022. This is similar to the negotiation process that was done in 2020 and that allowed us to secure vaccines for this year," explained the Minister of Communication, Agustín Castro.
