The City of São Paulo will expand, from Saturday (22), the posts for the vaccination of children against Covid-19. All 469 Basic Health Units (UBSs) will be available exclusively to the public.
It is still possible to go to 80 Ambulatory Medical Assistances (AMAs), which, in addition to administering the vaccine, will provide care for patients who have respiratory symptoms.
To receive the immunizer, the child must be accompanied by a guardian over 18 years of age. An identification document, preferably the Individual Taxpayer Registry (CPF), proof of residence and vaccination card must be presented.
The complete list of units can be found on the city’s website. In addition, the “De Olho na Fila” website provides real-time traffic at service stations.
Children aged 6 to 11 years will start being vaccinated with Coronavac this Saturday, after authorization from the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) last Thursday (20). The estimated audience of the age group is 919,553 people.
The municipality received 801,560 doses from the state government, which are being distributed this Friday (21) to vaccination posts.
For the 5-year-old and immunosuppressed population, doses of Pfizer will be given exclusively. Anvisa’s technical team indicated gaps in Coronavac’s effectiveness and safety studies for the public and did not carry out the authorization.
From Monday (24), vaccination of the public from 5 to 11 years old will only be carried out in UBSs.
