The former president of the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) Dirceu Barbano said in an interview with CNN this Tuesday (7), the requirement for a vaccination passport reinforces the act of citizenship in the fight against the new coronavirus.

For Barbano, vaccination is essential to control the pandemic, in each of the countries, at a global level.

“The decision on the vaccine passport reinforces the act of vaccination as an act of citizenship. And, in fact, with the argument that individual freedoms must be respected, a decision is taken that does not reach the rigor of other countries and disrespects the minimum rigor proposed by the Brazilian agency”, says the former president of Anvisa.

Earlier, the Minister of Health, Marcelo Queiroga, announced that travelers who are not vaccinated against Covid-19 will need to serve a five-day quarantine to enter the country.

“Anvisa’s decisions and guidelines, throughout this period of the pandemic, were challenged at many times,” said Barbano.
