Asthmatics ages two to five years, 11 months and 29 days will also receive the medication.

Immunization is directed with particular interest to adults over 85 years of age and those institutionalized in Homes for the Elderly, Homes for Grandparents and the Psycho-pedagogical Center for the disabled.

Pregnant women will be protected, regardless of maternal age, who will be guaranteed inoculation until January next year, as established by the Maternal and Child Care Program (PAMI).
