Madeira expects to receive 596,755 doses of vaccine against Govt-19 by the end of the third quarter, the regional health secretary said today, the day the region reached 100,000 dose administrations.
“We expect to receive 596,755 doses of vaccines by the end of the third quarter,” said Ramos, who wanted to mark the administration of 100,000 vaccines, visiting the vaccination center set up at Madeira Technopolo in Fungal.
The official stressed that the number reached today was “an important milestone” because “it is necessary to have 175 thousand people with two sizes”, “a certain percentage”. [da população] You only need one dose. ”
The official who took over the administration of the vaccine against Kovit-19 in Madeira declared, “At this time, the situation is 30% of the population where the first dose is administered and 10% with the second dose.”
“We hope to reach the 175,000 mark in September / October and then get vaccinated as soon as possible and get tested once every 15 days,” he said.
Point Pedro Ramos called on the regional government to conduct free trials once every 15 days for “all people, even those who are fully vaccinated, and all ages” so that health officials can “keep a close eye on all activities.”
He argued that there should be “a lot of wisdom” in deciding to mitigate imposed control measures, which only happen “when the evolution of an epidemic proves to be very favorable”.
“We will continue to test at the gateway to be on the lookout for countries with the worst effects of the evolution of epidemics. We will continue to test on the fifth day. We will continue to be vigilant, act with seriousness and responsibility, using all the knowledge that is gradually being released around the world,” he stressed.
Once the administration of the Pfizer vaccine is approved for “under-16s”, Madrid will also “vaccinate the younger,” Ramos announced.
