The arrival of another shipment of active pharmaceutical ingredient (IFA) for the production of vaccines against covid-19 is scheduled for 7:35 pm this Saturday (17), at the Rio de Janeiro International Airport (RIOGaleão).
The batch will allow the Institute of Technology in Immunobiologicals (Bio-Manguinhos/Fiocruz) to produce 10 million doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine.
So far, Fiocruz has delivered more than 69 million doses to the National Immunization Program (PNI), of which 4 million imported from the Serum Institute, in India.
The new IFA shipment will make it possible to deliver more doses in August, after completing the final processing and quality control steps. Fiocruz expects new deliveries for next month.
