Campinas demanded that new doses of the bivalent vaccine against Covid-19 be sent to the state government. According to the Municipal Health Department, as of Monday afternoon, April 1, the stock was just 54 doses in three of the metropolis’ 68 health centers.

The stock reached a critical level after the State sent only 40% of the doses requested in the last shipment. “The Ministry is in contact with the State and the expectation is that more vaccines will be delivered by the end of this week”, informed the Department of Health.

Currently, according to the Department of Health, the vaccine is only available in the DIC III, Nova América and Cássio Raposo do Amaral CSs.

Sampi Campinas contacted the state government, but, to date, has not received a response.


Old problem

The lack of bivalent doses is a problem that persists in Campinas. In January, for example, the municipality also reported low stock and blamed the São Paulo Government for the situation.

At the time, the department reported that the State did not meet the agreed deadline for sending the doses. Furthermore, he also complained that the previous shipment had only met 37% of the request.

The State, in turn, declared at the time that it was waiting for the vaccine to be sent by the Ministry of Health.

The shipment took place five days later, when Campinas received around 5 thousand doses of the bivalent.


Immunization

Until the last update from Municipal Health, 23.8% of the population over 18 years of age in the city received the bivalent booster. The percentage represents 220 thousand doses applied.

Of this total, 101.6 thousand immunizations were applied to the population aged 60 or over, which means an estimated coverage of 69.4% for this age group of the population.
