They spent a long time waiting to be

allowed to sign up

for the coronavirus vaccine.

They were finally able to sign up.

And now they

eagerly

await

the summons to be inoculated.

But what happens if, with the passing of days and weeks,

the turn does not come

?

Many residents of the

City

and

Province of Buenos Aires

are in this situation.

And their concern grows when they learn that other people

of the same age

 or risk condition have already been immunized.

Reviewing the

official websites

of the vaccination campaigns

from top to bottom

does not provide much clarification on this subject.

This is so because, in general, they limit themselves to indicating that the shifts are distributed as the vaccines arrive in the country, and that 

they must wait

to be contacted.

But how long is it reasonable to wait?

And where to turn to check if the vaccination is not taking longer than normal due to an

error

?

Clarín

transferred these inquiries to the authorities of both districts.

The situation in the City of Buenos Aires

In Buenos Aires territory, since Monday the authorities enabled registration for the entire population

over 45 years of age

.

Neighbors between that age and 49

can now register

on this website without having to prove that they have a special risk condition.

Last week they had already summoned people from

50 to 59 years old

, who

can

now 

continue to register

, like all the people considered in the previous instances.

All these news came after progress had been made with the

highest priority

groups

, including health personnel, those over 60, police, teachers and neighbors with risky diseases.

After entering the official site and completing the form (or calling 147), the established procedure is as follows:

  • You should expect a

    summons

    that arrives by

    email, WhatsApp and SMS

    , through the contact channels declared when registering.

  • Through a personalized link, the neighbor

    selects the date, time

    and place he prefers to be vaccinated.

  • Receive a

    shift confirmation

    through the same communication channels.


  • You must go to the appointment

    15 minutes in advance

    and there will be 15 minutes for observation after the application.

After receiving the injection, people should stay for a while under observation.

What to do if the summons does not arrive?

As a first measure, the Buenos Aires government asks residents 

not to re-register

and to check if they did not receive the messages in the

SPAM

(spam) box.

"Sometimes there can be an error in the loading of the contact information because we send

3, 4 and even 5 times

the emails so that the neighbors can take turns," they told

Clarín

in the Buenos Aires Ministry of Health.

Registrants can

check if they are properly registered

by writing on WhatsApp at +54 911 5050-0147.

In the chat, choose "Covid Vaccine" and then the option "Am I on the roll?".

In any case, they explained, if time passes and they do not receive their turn, people can

inquire about their situation by

writing to consultavacunacovid@buenosaires.gob.ar or by calling the toll-free number

147

.

In the Province of Buenos Aires, the procedure to access the vaccine can vary greatly depending on the age of the person.

This is because for certain groups there is "

free vaccination

" starting this month

, while others - the vast majority - must register and

wait for a summons

.

Those who today can appear at any nearby vaccination center

without a previous

appointment

to receive the first dose, only carrying their ID, are all 

those over 60 years of age

who live in the Province.

People

between 18 and 59 years old

, on the other hand, must express their intention to be vaccinated by leaving their information on the website vaccinatepba.gba.gob.ar or in the VacunatePBA application (download here for Android phones or for iPhone), and

wait for them to contact them

.

Unlike what happens in Capital,

all neighbors

 of

legal

age

can already sign up

, whether or not they have previous illnesses.

But the shifts are also granted as doses arrive in the country, and 

prioritizing

the most vulnerable groups.

How should the turn come?

When vaccines are available for their group, the registered person 

receives a notification

by email, by the app or by phone.

Shifts are sent as doses arrive in the country, prioritizing those enrolled in risk groups.

What can be done if the shift is considered to be taking longer than it should?

The provincial government asks the neighbor, in principle, to 

be patient

.

"They are all being vaccinated.

If they did not call him, they will call him,

" they responded in the Buenos Aires Ministry of Health, before

Clarín's

query

.

They added that, by entering the

"My data" section

of the app, registrants can

check if there are no errors

in their personal data.

The review and eventual

corrections

can also be made through the official website, entering where it says "Citizenship Portal".

Finally, if the data is correct, a query can be made about the case by calling the

toll-free number 148

, which is open 24 hours a day.

Or by email to vaccinatepba@ms.gba.gov.ar.
