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 Sinopharm vaccine is produced with an inactivated form of the virus. The inoculation is administered in two doses, with a three to four month interval between the two.
Created in 2005 by the Federal Government, the grant is among the world’s top individual sponsorship programs for athletes. In 28 of the 33 modalities in which Brazil will be competing, all sportspeople are covered by the initiative.
