The decision to anticipate the measure to extend self-scheduling for vaccination to people over 60 years of age was due to the high rate of vaccination recorded in recent days, the task force source explained to Lusa.
On Friday, the team responsible for the operationalization of the vaccination had told Lusa agency it was expected to open self-scheduling for those over 60 years old.
This new phase started this weekend and it is expected that by the end of the month people over 60 will have been vaccinated with at least one dose.
The portal for self-scheduling for vaccination started operating on April 23, having registered, until the beginning of last week, about 206 thousand registrations for taking the vaccine against covid-19.
