New Ministry of Health website to register for coronavirus vaccine

About a week ago the Ministry of Health put up a new website that is supposed to (emphasis on supposed to) give you the date, time and location of your scheduled coronavirus vaccinations (first and second shots).

As others have reported, sometimes they have been directed to an incorrect location, but eventually arrived at the correct place for shot #1 or shot #2.

I have read that beginning June 15th the government plans to expand the eligible ages to 50-64. If you would like to confirm your enrollment or contact information in the Ministry of Health’s database, you can go to the following web page (new): https://lugarvacunacion.cne.gob.ec/

At this same web site you can enter your contact information to make sure it is updated and current. My cell phone number had changed, and I was having difficulty updating it with IESS. The Ministry of Health will contact people via text message and email, so it’s important to have current contact information in their database.

At the above website, you enter your cedula number and date of birth and the system will return information. If you don’t yet have an appointment scheduled, you can review or enter contact information including cell phone number.

If you are enrolled in IESS the government is sharing that information with the Ministry of Health for purposes of scheduling the coronavirus vaccinations.

The government is making noises that it wants to vaccinate 70% of the population in the first 100 days of the new Lasso administration, which would be fantastic if it can be done.

I am awaiting my first shot as I am in the age 50-64 group. The government is also planning on the next age group after 50-64, which will be age 40 and over.

According to President Lasso, this weekend the government received a shipment of 700,000 new doses of vaccine, 500,000 purchased by Ecuador and 200,000 donated by China.
