Uruguay started nation-wide Covid-19 vaccination with +47k essential workers already scheduled

Firsts jabs are available only for education, police, and military personnel.

The Health Ministry's goal is to achieve herd immunity with the vaccine (around 70% of the whole population). Vaccination is not mandatory, but health minister Salinas pointed that being vaccinated is a civic duty. People that don't want to be vaccinated will be put at the end of the line.
