However, sending potions does not end Discussion About the amount of vaccinations São Paulo should receive. The Ministry confirms that there will be a debt of doses from the private government to the government PNI (National Immunization Program).
The country would have kept a larger amount of Coronavac to which it is entitled, before one of the consignments of the Immunization Agent from the Butantan Institute is delivered to the programme. To make up for this, the ministry would have withheld 228,000 doses from Pfizer.
Minister Gornstein reiterates that “there is no debt” between São Paulo and the PNI. “We do the math carefully,” he says. “But that didn’t happen.” The SP government requested an investigation by the Public Prosecution Office of São Paulo.
On the other hand, the ministry states that there is a discrepancy in the calculation between the São Paulo State Health Department and the ministry, since Putantan Institute Delivers doses directly to the government of São Paulo.
Butantan has already delivered 66.85 million doses of Coronavac, out of a total of 100 million it needs to make, under contract, to the ministry. He claims that this will be done by the end of August.
The debate will continue even as 228,000 doses are sent this week. “These are normal successes. Discussions about the transition methodology between priority groups and age groups,” Quiroga said, through a letter, to the column.
Doria has already announced that it intends to start vaccinating 12-17 year olds starting on the 18th.
