All this being the case, the domestic 14-day incidence per 100,000 inhabitants is 519.8, and the 14-day incidence at the border per 100,000 inhabitants is 25.4.

Those who were first vaccinated in the spring, those aged 60 and older, and those with pre-existing conditions will be the first to get their booster shots, using the Pfizer vaccine. Furthermore, those aged 16 and older who had their second vaccine shot six months ago or longer may also come to the location on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:00 to 15:00.
