Brazil has surpassed the threshold of 60 percent of the population vaccinated with at least one dose of the inoculation against COVID-19. These are 160 million people older than 18.
The first shipment, with 1.5 million doses of the vaccine against COVID-19, from Janssen, Johnson & Johnson’s pharmaceutical unit, arrived this morning (Jun. 22) in Brazil. In all, 38 million doses have been ordered from the company by the Brazilian government.
The public data on the use of vaccines against COVID-19 in the country has thus far shown no link between the inoculation and adverse effects or deaths. No change in the risk–benefit ratio has been reported, Anvisa stated.
