Title: Colombia Prepares for COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout, Targets 70% Immunization by Mid-2021

Colombia has begun making extensive preparations for the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, with an ambitious goal of immunizing 70% of its population by mid-2021. The South American nation aims to vaccinate around 35 million people, with priority given to healthcare workers, the elderly, and those with underlying health conditions.

In order to achieve this target, the Colombian Ministry of Health has been working tirelessly to secure vaccine agreements with pharmaceutical companies. As a result, the government has already signed agreements with various manufacturers, including Pfizer, AstraZeneca, and Janssen, ensuring a supply of vaccines once they are approved for distribution.

To efficiently distribute the vaccines, Colombia has established a nationwide vaccination plan. The country plans to divide its population into three phases, starting with those most vulnerable to severe COVID-19 infections. The first phase will focus on approximately 1.7 million healthcare workers, followed by the elderly population aged 80 years and above, totaling around 1.1 million people. Additionally, individuals aged 60 and above with comorbidities will also be included in this phase.

The second phase of the vaccination plan will cover Colombian citizens aged 60 and above who do not have underlying health conditions. This phase aims to vaccinate around 7 million people. The third and final phase will target the rest of the population aged 16 to 59, which includes those who play a pivotal role in the economy and society.
