The Minister of Health, Marcelo Queiroga, said today (23) that the third dose of the vaccine against covid-19 will advance in the country only after Brazil consolidates the application of the second dose of immunization against the disease.
“Third dose only after we move on to the second one”, he highlighted. The Health Minister’s answer was given after he was asked about the possibility of a boost in vaccination against covid-19. “WHO [Organização Mundial da Saúde], today, dictated a position in the sense of not moving forward with the third dose until the second dose was applied in the majority of the global population”, added the minister.
According to the Ministry of Health, although Brazil has reached a high number of people vaccinated with the first dose, more than 8.5 million Brazilians did not return to the post to receive the second. Approximately 55 million Brazilians completed the vaccination schedule with two doses or a single dose of the immunizing agent.
