After the booster dose weekend for those who took the Coronavac / Butantan vaccine, on Monday (26) the municipality of João Pessoa began vaccinating traditional and Quilombola communities. Immunization begins at 11 am, in the two representative entities in Paratibe: the Quilombo Remaining Communities Charitable Association “Palmares” and Associação da Comunidade Negra de Paratibe.
João Pessoa will also continue to care for bedridden people who have already received their first dose of vaccine in the capital. The teams will make home visits to complete the vaccination schedule for this particular audience.
The second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine will also continue to be given to health workers who work directly in caring for people with flu-like illnesses and work in the capital’s hospital network.
As of the second (26), staff from Dom Rodrigo Hospital, Giuliano Moreira Psychiatric Complex, Klemm, João Paulo II, Nova Esperanca Hospital, Padre Z and Samaritano Hospital will be considered.
Teams have already visited Senador Humberto Lucena Emergency and Trauma Hospital, Neapolau Loriano, São Luis, Arlinda Marquez Children, Sao Vicente de Paula, Mangabira Tarsio de Miranda Bioretti Hospital Complex, General Edson Ramalho, Candida Vargas and Joao Pessoao Hospital. .
“All professionals who work in these hospital units are vaccinated against the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, which is produced by the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz). “They are workers who started the vaccination schedule between January 28 and February 4,” explained Fernando Fergulino, a nurse and head of the immunization department at the Joao Pessoa Department of Health.
Anyone taking the backup is necessary to bring an official ID with photo and vaccination card with the first dose and proof of residency in João Pessoa.
The Municipal Health Administration alerts people who are still waiting for the moment to receive the vaccination so that they can register through Joao Pessoa vaccine application or on the website. In this way, it will simplify the scheduling and attendance process for vaccination centers, ensuring that the information is the vaccine at the specified location. People who face difficulties using the electronic tool can go to health and vaccination centers to receive assistance in this process. It is also important to note that the scheduling occurs according to the availability of the vaccine that the Ministry of Health purchases and distributes.
