The violation was revealed on Tuesday (6) and must be referred to the Public Prosecution and the supervisory authorities “to take due legal measures, as it is a crime against public property and endangers life, in fact there are no studies that indicate this trend.”
“Being an educated person about the risk of crossing vaccines without studies and without a recommendation from the Ministry of Health, the professional could not get around the system to take a third dose of the vaccine, now from Janssen, and thus be a terrible example to the community as stated in the Simsa statement.”
The doctor received the first dose of CoronaVac on January 26; The second dose of the vaccine was given on March 24. However, the health professional again sought the health centers to receive a third and only dose of Janssen.
The secretariat was informed that in addition to the doctor, two other people were identified while trying to circumvent the vaccination campaign. However, they have been identified by the app and removed from queues.
