Vaccines will be distributed to about 50% of the 17-year-old population across the state, that is, around 76,000 doses. “We will distribute vaccine doses to a portion of healthy 17-year-old adolescents, but remember that the elderly and immunosuppressed groups are the most vulnerable to complications from the disease. We cannot open up vaccination to teenagers and not focus on boosting the immunity of these two groups. It is necessary that the vaccination of adolescents and the most vulnerable is simultaneous”, said the assistant secretary of Health, Ana Costa.

About 75,000 doses will be distributed to boost the immunization of people aged 70 or over. For the elderly to be able to receive the booster dose, they must have completed the vaccination schedule for at least six months.

Immunosuppressed
