Ulloa was vaccinated at the Community Family Health Unit (UCSF) “Dr. Carlos Díaz del Pinal ”, in Santa Tecla, La Libertad.
The vaccine is voluntary but it is a citizen responsibility and it is totally free. Let’s get vaccinated, it is a commitment to our loved ones.

The Health authorities did not clarify which vaccine Ulloa received, although according to the protocols issued by the Ministry of Health, rHe would receive a different drug from his original scheme, which was the drug Coronavac, from the Chinese manufacturer Sinovac.
The drug regulatory agency (FDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), of the United States, established that the booster dose must be received six months after the original regimen has been completed; however, only five months have passed since the first dose of Ulloa, on April 15.

The measure of the third dose is not yet endorsed by international health organizations, who asked other countries like the United States to prioritize access to other poor nations that have not received the vaccine.
Nevertheless, El Salvador makes the decision to start inoculating with a third dose, as a measure to combat the rise in infections, attributed by health authorities to the Delta variant, whose viral load is up to 1,200 times higher than previous mutations.
