Governor Wellington Dias (PT) announced on Friday (5) that India should not meet the schedule and deliver 4 million doses of the serum / estrogenica-produced vaccine by the end of this month. According to him, this information is already worrying that the country is still skating in mass vaccination of the population.
On social networks, the governor said, “I received the news with concern that an Indian company, which is partnering with Firokruz and AstraZeneca, will not comply with the program for sending vaccines ready for the month of March.”
Wellington Dias stated that they approached the company and the justification is that India, like Brazil, is facing a strong health crisis and has suspended the export of vaccines for this reason.
“I was in touch with the company and the justification is that the Indian government has banned the export of any vaccine in view of the health crisis in the country,” he said.
The governor also said that he met with the president of Fiocruz, Nisia Trinidad, and said that it should be expanded to avoid a decrease in vaccine production in the country.
“Thinking of a solution so that Brazil’s schedule is not affected, I spoke to Dr. Nisia Trinid, president of Ficruz, so that, like what happened in Butanon, the institute’s production line would expand,” he said. The idea has been emphasized. Fiocruz will distribute, this month, vaccines produced from the active pharmaceutical ingredient (IFA) received this week.
The country received 15 million from IFA this week, the raw material for vaccine production this week. “Brazil cannot escape reality. Right now, what we need are more vaccines. And the one that can help us is Butanon and Fiocruz, that’s why we have all our support and requests to provide the necessary support to the Ministry of Health ”, he concluded.
