2 Mar 21

PANAMA

Panama has introduced an online platform for foreign nationals living in the country to register for the COVID-19 vaccine.

Key Points:

  • Foreign nationals living in Panama can now register for a COVID-19 vaccination through this website.
  • While the vaccination is not a requirement, it will be available to foreign nationals who are working in the country.
  • While registration is not required in order to receive a shot, the program is designed to make it easier to identify people who want the shot and to help distribute and track vaccinations.

 

Background: Panama received its first doses of the COVID-19 vaccine in January. Some countries have excluded foreign nationals from the vaccination process, but the government of Panama decided they would be included.
