Brazil's Health Minister Pressured to Present Vaccine Distribution Plan this Wednesday

Pazuello participated in meeting with governors, who demand national immunization strategy


Governors who met with Minister Eduardo Pazuello (Health) said that the federal government would present this Wednesday (9) a logistical plan for vaccinating the population against Covid-19.

Pazuello will explain how the vaccine will be distributed throughout the national territory.

The minister will likely detail the preparations for the purchase of syringes and ultra-coolers, necessary for the storage of vaccinations in extremely low temperatures.

The minister signaled that he would make the announcement during a tense meeting with governors. Six heads of state government attended the Planalto Palace, where the meeting took place, while representatives of the other federation units followed the meeting by teleconference.
