Covid 19 Vaccination Points Currently Functioning in Metrosalud: 

Colombia is slowly but surely getting vaccinations out there. Soon we will see persons 65 and up eligible for vaccinations. Currently only government clinics are issuing the vaccinations free of charge. Private industry will probably get authorization late this year or in 2022. You do need a cedula or cedula de extranjeria to get a vaccination once your age is available. Passports are not accepted.

This information was provided by Quintero Calle, the Mayor of Medellin on his twitter feed from April 10th, 2021. Please follow twitter and news for updates on vaccine supply and ages being vaccinated:
