Peru receives 1st batch of Pfizer vaccine against Covid-19

Lima, Mar 4 (UNI) Peru has received the first batch of the Pfizer vaccine against the COVID-19, Prime Minister Violeta Bermudez said.
“The government is fulfilling its promises, and the vaccines continue to arrive in the country. We will not stop the vaccination campaign that started on February 9, and we will continue it until the last day of our rule,” the prime minister said on late Wednesday.
