"That is, if a 90 year old decides to do it now, enters, makes an appointment and does it. The application does not close ", explained through the example.

Irregularities were observed where there were mobile units ", noted and spoke of “few cases that have been reported. Which are controlled and responsibilities will be assigned ".
He explained that, "Mobile units are to be replenished in the same way" and said categorically that, it is clear who, when and where he did "the vaccine.
