The city of São Paulo reached this Wednesday, 24, the mark of 100% of the adult population vaccinated against covid-19 with the second dose or single dose. The information was anticipated by State Column.
The challenge now is to move forward with immunization among adolescents aged 12 to 17 years to complete the vaccine schedule. Anyone over 18 years old and who took the second dose at least five months ago can also take the booster dose.
Starting this Thursday, 25, teams from the Municipal Health Department will go to municipal and state schools to apply the second dose of the vaccine to adolescents. Parents and guardians, however, must sign a document authorizing the immunization.
“With vaccination in schools, it will be possible to complete the vaccination cycle for adolescents and guarantee the second doses for this public”, said the municipal secretary of Health, Edson Aparecido.
In adolescents from 12 to 17 years old, until this Tuesday, 23, 893,268 first doses were applied, representing a vaccination coverage of 105.8%. Regarding the second dose, there were 338,553 applications, or 40.1% of adolescents.
The Municipal Health Department also asked the Ministry of Health and the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) to demand a vaccine passport for foreigners. There is concern about the entry of visitors into the country without immunization against covid-19 in the coming months, with the year-end parties and carnival.
