Vaccination at Tide
Mass vaccination of residents of Complexo da Maré reached the goal, with the immunization of 33,774 people last weekend, according to the City of Rio.
The action is part of a survey by the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation (Fiocruz) in partnership with the Municipal Health Department and the NGO Redes da Maré, with the aim of mapping the impact of vaccination on the community’s population.
The adult population that had not yet been immunized received the first dose at one of 145 vaccination points throughout the region.
The immunizing agent used in the action was that of AstraZeneca/Fiocruz, with exclusive vaccination for residents of Maré registered in one of the seven Primary Care units that serve the communities of Maré. In all, 1,620 volunteers worked during the four days of the action.
