Government publishes MPs to join global covid-19 vaccine program


THE federal government on Thursday, 24, published a provisional measure to release around R $ 2.5 billion for the country to join the Covax Facility, a global consortium of governments and manufacturers to boost the development of vaccines against covid-19. In addition to this, a second measure, adhering to the program, was published in an extra edition of the Official Gazette of this Friday, 25.

“It is hoped that, through this instrument, Brazil will be able to buy the equivalent to guarantee the immunization of 10% of the population by the end of 2021, which allows it to serve populations considered to be priority”, states the Planalto Palace in a note. Membership will allow access to the portfolio of nine vaccines under development, in addition to others under analysis.
