In the case of children who received a positive diagnosis of Covid-19, the recommendation is the same as for the adult public, with the application of the immunizer 30 days after the onset of symptoms or the positive result in asymptomatic cases. In the case of flu syndrome, with a negative test for Covid-19, the receipt of the vaccine must occur 48 hours after the symptoms disappear.

To be vaccinated, it is necessary to present the number of the National Health Card (CNS) and the child’s official identification document: birth certificate, identity card or passport. It will also be necessary to present an original document with a photo of the person responsible for the child at the time of application. If the child does not have any CNS record, he/she can go to one of the 116 health posts for issuance, taking an official identification document and proof of residence of the parents or guardians.

In total, 19,788 children have already received their first dose in Fortaleza, according to data from the Vacinometer of the Ceará Health Department (Sesa) consolidated this Thursday, 27th. Considering the entire population, 76.7% of the people from Fortaleza have already completed the vaccine cycle against the disease, with two doses of the vaccine or a single dose. The population estimate is a projection of the IBGE for 2021.
