“We vaccinated 80% of eligible people. The vast majority of people who are able to be vaccinated are vaccinated,” said Colonel Carlos Penha Gonçalves.

The official specified that “more than 5.7 million people [were vaccinated] with the third dose”, adding that “the overwhelming majority of people who are over 18 and could take it, have already taken it”, admitting, however, that “there are still people who have not done so”.

“But there is still a fraction of people who have not come to the process and the facilities will still be here. The appeal I make is that people take advantage of these structures to vaccinate and finish their vaccine booster process. My appeal is that you do so as soon as possible”, he underlined.
