The final distribution of the vaccine between the cities of these regions will be defined by the Regional Health Coordination involved together with the municipal health of cities covered, and should be proportional to the population of each municipality.

The recommendation of the SES and the Ministry of Health is to maintain the vaccination of risk groups and the chronically ill, particularly pregnant women and children younger than six months to two years, which had the lowest coverage so far, but the municipalities have autonomy to reset the guidelines as the situation in their region.
