The Federal District begins today (27) the vaccination of a new group of teachers. Six thousand doses of the pharmaceutical Janssen’s immunizing agent were destined for this priority public, whose application is made with a single dose.
From Thursday (29) to Saturday there will be a recap of the category, with almost two thousand doses. This additional batch will be provided to teachers who are unable to immunize for various reasons that ruled out the possibility of applying doses, such as diseases, for example.
The choice of Janssen for the professors was made as a way to streamline the immunization of the category in view of the back-to-class schedule in the country’s capital. The face-to-face activities in public schools will start on August 2nd.
In the private network – since 2020 – the possibility of in-person, hybrid classes or maintenance of the remote format was authorized.
