As they are not yet 18 years old, adolescents need to be accompanied by a person in charge at the time of vaccination. Several municipalities in the state that are more advanced in the immunization process have already started to apply the doses to adolescents.
An order of priority was defined for receiving the immunizing agent in the city: permanent disability, people with chronic diseases; pregnant and purpered women up to 45 days postpartum; and people deprived of liberty.
Uberaba, in Tringulo Mineiro, is already with the most advanced process. This Monday (9/13), the city hall will continue to vaccinate 14 and 15 year olds. Adolescents are vaccinated at the Municipal Sports and Leisure Foundation (Funel) and Shopping Uberaba, from 8:30 am to 4 pm.
In Bandeira, in turn, immunization will be scheduled by community health agents for all adolescents between 12 and 17 years old with chronic diseases to avoid crowding, but the city hall announced that vaccination will take place on Wednesday (9/15), from 8:00 am to 11:00 am at the Timorante Basic Health Unit (UBS), located at Rua Benjamin Sousa Rocha, 29, in the Rural Zone, and from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm at the headquarters’ UBS, located at Rua Professora Arlete Campanha, 1.
