The city of São Paulo is doing this Wednesday (1st) an active search for homeless people who have not received the first dose or the booster dose of the vaccine against covid-19. The action will take place at the São Martinho Lima Coexistence Center, in the Belenzinho region.

Until last Friday (26), 42,618 doses were applied among homeless people in São Paulo. According to the city, 20,360 of these people have the complete vaccination schedule.

In June of this year, those in a vulnerable situation had the Janssen vaccine prioritized, due to the advantage of being applied in a single dose.

With the change in vaccination strategy, however, whoever was vaccinated with Janssen's immunizer must also receive an additional dose. Since the last day 29, São Paulo released that the boost is made with the Pfizer vaccine. All you have to do is have the Janssen vaccine for at least two months.
