Elderly people aged 80 years or older may receive the fourth dose of the Covid-19 starting next week, considering the minimum interval of 4 months from the implementation of the reinforcement. It is important to note that for this audience, specifically, there will also be the application of the influenza vaccine at the same time, to avoid that the elderly go to the immunisation points more than once. Children aged 5 years, without comorbidities, born from February to July 2016 and who have received Pfizer Paediatric may also complete the vaccination course. To take the immunizer it is necessary that the child audience has at least eight weeks since the first dose was given. The Belo Horizonte City Hall will continue with the daily repechage actions to already convened.
