“We are the region of the country with the best vaccination rate”, declared the Social Democrat deputy Rubina Leal in an brealk in the plenary of the Legislative Assembly of Madeira (ALM).

The parliamentarian from the majority parliamentary group stressed that “the best way to protect the population is with vaccination”, noting that the region “has more than 209,000 administered vaccines”.

Rubina Leal declared that “the region has proven to win the battle to contain the pandemic” and the “campaign has reached recognized values” even by the person in charge of the task-force, Henrique Gouveia e Melo, when he traveled to Madeira last week.

“Madeira has overcome and managed to contain this problem and safeguard human life”, she stressed.
