The Health Department begins this Friday, 10, the distribution of 87,750 doses of the Pfizer vaccine to the 17 Decentralized Units of Epidemiological Surveillance of Santa Catatarina for the vaccination of adolescents in priority groups (pregnant women, postpartum women, lactating women, with permanent disabilities, patients with comorbidities and deprived of liberty) and for the application of the booster dose in the elderly aged 85 years or more.

The director of Dive/SC, João Augusto Brancher Fuck, highlights the new phase of the immunization calendar.

“With the fast pace of vaccination throughout the state, we were able to start sending doses for application in adolescents and the booster dose in the elderly over 85 years of age. It is another important step in the State’s Vaccination Campaign”, emphasizes the director.

In order to be vaccinated, adolescents must be authorized by their parents or guardians. Authorization can be verbal, if the young person is accompanied by parents or guardians, or upon presentation of a consent form duly filled in and signed by the parents and/or legal guardians. In the case of elderly people over 85 years of age, the booster dose should be given to those who took the second dose of the vaccine at least six months ago.

Adult doses and second application

The state will also forward 30,580 doses of Coronavac to 124 municipalities to regional centers for the application of the first dose in adults aged 18 years or more who have not yet been vaccinated. For the application of the second dose, 85,410 doses from Pfizer and 84,870 from Coronavac will be distributed. In all, 288,610 doses will be sent to the centrals this Friday.

Distribution starts in the morning. The doses from the plants in Greater Florianópolis, Blumenau, Itajaí, Tubarão, Criciúma, Araranguá, Jaraguá do Sul, Joinville, Mafra, Lages and Rio do Sul will be transported by land.
