RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Faced with the federal government's delay in closing purchase agreements or anticipating the vaccination campaign against Covid-19, scheduled to begin in March by the Ministry of Health, governors and mayors have been mobilizing on their own to secure immunizers.
Some of them are turning to São Paulo's Governor João Doria for doses of the Coronavac, developed in partnership with the Chinese Sinovac group. The governor's plan is to begin immunization on January 25th. Other local governments are planning to negotiate directly with Pfizer, whose vaccine proved to be 95% effective . . .
