After a long wait, Belo Horizonte will start this Saturday (1/15) to vaccinate children aged 5 to 11 against the coronavirus. In this first shipment of 10,800 doses, children with comorbidities, permanent disabilities, indigenous or quilombola, bedridden and with reduced mobility will be covered.

The doses that arrived at the Belo Horizonte International Airport, in Confins, were transported to the Rede de Frio State Center, shortly after landing. The distribution to the health regional offices started this Friday (1/14).

The application of doses in BH will be done exclusively in health centers. However, in the future, the city will put vaccination points in municipal schools, in order to ensure that children are not in contact with patients who have respiratory symptoms or suspected COVID-19.

According to PBH guidelines, children must be accompanied by parents or guardians and present an identification document with photo or birth certificate, CPF, proof of address and vaccination card.

If the monitoring is carried out by a third party, there will be a need to present the authorization term for vaccination, available on the city hall website – it must be duly completed and signed by the parents or guardians.

The municipality warns that the expansion of vaccination for children without comorbidities will be done gradually and according to the number of doses transferred to the municipality.
