RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - Rio City Hall has already announced plans to administer the third dose of the Covid-19 vaccine to the elderly once the calendar for the rest of the public is finalized.
The so-called booster shot was scheduled to begin in October for those over 80 years old, in November for those over 70 years old, and in December for those over 60 years old.
However, in announcing this schedule, the Municipal Health Secretariat clarified that it would only be applied if there is solid scientific evidence (of effectiveness) and a recommendation from the National Immunization . . .
