As a small less-developed country, Uruguay initially only received Coronavac (which we referred to as Sinovac elsewhere on this site) from China in sufficient numbers and much fewer doses of Pfizer which were reserved for essential workers. Vaccination supplies were first flown in on February 25.

This graphic from the Coronavirus UY app shows the total doses administered (almost 6.3 million) and the types of anti-covid vaccine as of October 1 2021.

Most used vaccines in Uruguay

  1. Coronavac
  2. Pfizer
  3. Astrazeneca.

On July 28, the health minister announced that Uruguay would offer a booster shot of Pfizer, now being supplied to all people previously vaccinated with Coronavac. While Coronavac has good protection rates it is are not quite as high as others.
