580,000 doses of AstraZeneca will arrive next Tuesday, in addition to the 400,000 for Sputnik V that have arrived on Friday

Next week Argentina will be able to vaccinate almost a million people

Excerpts:
...As of February 14, the government of Vladimir Putin promised to regularly send 1 million doses per week from India and no longer from Moscow.
....The shipment by Gamaleya of batches of component 1 is closely related to the strategy that various health portfolios have implemented worldwide. Although immunity is not complete, the level of protection against future contagion can be considerable with a single dose.
....For this reason, the balance is tilting to inoculate the largest number of people with a single dose and defer the second .

....The Argentine government continues to advance on several fronts at the same time. The strategy of placing multiple eggs in different baskets seems to pay off.
Days ago, it closed the agreement with the state company Sinopharm, through which the Chinese laboratory will send 500 thousand copies of dose 1 and 500 thousand of dose 2 .

The focus on the vaccination rate
"Given the immediate availability of vaccines, what will have to be analyzed then is the distribution, logistics and rate of inoculation in the vaccinations of the different provinces. It's not just about capacity but also about speed"
....In CABA there will be 20 vaccinations and five mobile units . From Health they seek an agreement with the objective that social leftovers and prepaid also vaccinate . For example, the Italian Hospital, the British Hospital, the German Hospital, the Cemic, Osecac and ObSBA have already confirmed, although others such as Swiss Medical, Galeno and Osde, precisely the most important, have not yet confirmed.
....In the Province of Buenos Aires, the entire vaccination process will use the public infrastructure network. For example, in La Matanza there will be 56 vaccination centers and four hospitals and the goal is to inoculate about 600 thousand people in the coming weeks.

Who can be vaccinated according to the new guidelines of the Ministry of Health.
....with the Sputnik V pregnant women and those who are breastfeeding, people with autoimmune diseases and immunocompromised people who are part of the groups already prioritized by the experts for the vaccination. This was the proposal of the National Immunization Commission (CoNaIn) in consensus with various Scientific Societies and external experts from the Ministry.

The document explains that "in line with the analysis and recommendations published in recent weeks in other countries, the Ministry of Health has been recommended to exclude the concept of "contraindication for vaccination against COVID-19 to pregnant women, women in lactation period, immunocompromised people or people with autoimmune diseases that are part of the groups that belong to the target population to be vaccinated (as long as the vaccine platform used is NOT live and attenuated viruses).

To learn more about it from the infectologist, Angela Gentile. "It must be made clear that we are not massively indicating vaccination in pregnant women". "It is vaccination in immunocompromised or lactating pregnancies, but that only belong to high-risk groups."

Later on the vaccination plan, the specialist assured that “we need to increase the rate of vaccination. The strategy is adequate, because it was much discussed. First application to medical personnel, then to people aged 70 and over because they are the ones who are hospitalized and die, and also the ones in essential forces ”....

Dear Quirós appears to of forgotten a decade of the ages 70 to 79. We live in hope he gets them packed in. Earlier the next age group was 75 and over, now it's 80 and over and next stop below is 69 to 60.
I think the omission of the group of "adults aged 70 to 79" was not made by Dr. Quiros but rather the error was made by the person(s) who wrote this article at Infobae.
