Portugal’s covid vaccination plan coordinator said today that, within two to three weeks, it will be possible to vaccinate an average of 100,000 people per day, a process that will be "complex" due to the speed and number of doses to be administered.

According to Henrique Gouveia e Melo, the second phase of the vaccination is being organized and tested and the “indications are positive”. It is necessary to vaccinate about 100 thousand people daily, “within two to three weeks”, to use all the vaccines that the country will receive.
