Calling users to take the second dose of Astrazeneca done locally – Society

The call for people to receive the second dose of Astrazeneca vaccine is being done at the local level so as not to “create a logistical nightmare”, said today the coordinator of the ‘task force’ of vaccination against covid-19.

“In order not to create a logistical nightmare in terms of summoning people, we are making a local summons of these people for the second doses”, said Henrique Gouveia e Melo in a videoconference hearing at the Health Commission, at the request of the PSD.

This call results from the interval between taking the second dose of Astrazeneca vaccine being reduced from 12 to eight weeks to ensure “faster protection” against the transmission of new “concerning variants” of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, such as the variant Delta.
