COVID-19 October 8, 2021 | 4:51 pm

Vaccination card with two doses will be required to attend public places, companies and educational centers.

After lifting the State of Emergency, the Ministry of Public Health announced that the country continues to be under endemic alert. In this regard, it ordered that the vaccination card with two doses be required of all the population over 12 years of age to attend work centers, public and private educational centers at all levels, and places of public use.

As of October 18, people will have to present their vaccination certificates to enter bars, restaurants, supermarkets, stores, gyms, sports and entertainment centers, workplaces, and schools. The measure also includes urban and interurban public transportation.

Those over 12 years of age who do not have two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine as of that date must present a negative PCR test not older than seven days. This provision will cease to apply after 14 days of receiving the completed COVID-19 vaccine.

Public Health authorities may grant special permission for persons who, for medical reasons, are unable to receive the vaccine.

Regarding the requirement of the vaccination card, the Ministry of Public Health warned that the falsification of the document would lead to prosecution and informed that businesses that detect a possible false card must report it to the authorities for investigation purposes.

The Minister of Health, Daniel Rivera, reiterated the call to the people who have not been vaccinated to go to the authorized centers nationwide. Likewise, all officials are instructed to monitor the compliance of the measures taken.

Availability of vaccines and PCR tests is guaranteed.
The Ministry of Health urged local officials and institutions of the National Health System to redouble their efforts to guarantee the availability of vaccination centers and PCR tests for COVID-19 throughout the country because of these new measures.

Likewise, to guarantee the availability of COVID-19 beds, Intensive Care Unit, and ventilators to provide an adequate response to patients affected by the disease.

The Ministries of Public Administration, Education, Higher Education, Tourism, Culture, and Sports should develop and implement their sectorial measures to prevent coronavirus following the general protocols of the Ministry of Public Health.

ElNaranjo, I am Canadian and respect the new proof of vaccination policy in Dominican Republic. My wife and I both had Covid last year, and are both double vaxxed. I understand your frustration as we are frustrated with people not working together to eradicate the virus. We will follow whatever restrictions are in place, looking forward to returning to DR for the winter.

Why would you get double vaxxxed if you had it? Your immune system is now shot, because your natural immunity was wasted on attacking your unnatural immunity.

Because us Dominicans love our freedom. Given our past history under tyranny. Some come here trying to impose the crap they left their country for.

The dominican people must resist this tyranny, it is time to fight back it’s not about no damn virus…
We the people must start a massive boycott against any businesses that require to show the proof of mark of the beast.

Agree. This will highly impact my choice to retire there. I already had Covid, do not need the jab, that we still do not know what the long term effects will be.

This should be a boon to small businesses like colmados. For proof vaccines are ‘not’ working look at highly vaccinated Israel. Smaller population – higher vaccination rate, higher death count and supposedly better health care. We are all going to be exposed to ‘it’ the covid virus in one form or another, get yourself strong and doln’tbe afraid. The ‘jab’ is not only not going to help, it is very likely to be counter productive. To be insisting on it in children with virtually no health statistics as begin at risk is dangerous.

You should stop using the word “we” in every reply that you write! You should say “I” instead to speak for yourself!

And to think, they have given people less than 10 days to get the 2 jabs needed, add on 14 days to be effective. nice plan in deed.
