The last phase of testing to prove the effectiveness and safety of vaccine against covid-19 will be concluded until next Friday, 16, guaranteed the governor of São Paulo, João Doria (PSDB) in a press conference. The immunizer is developed by the Chinese laboratory Sinovac, in partnership with the Butantan Institute.
“Friday we will have the conclusive results and next Monday [dia 19 de outubro] the result will be displayed. So far, all results have been positive. No collaterals were presented to the 13,000 doctors and nurses who were tested in seven Brazilian states, ”said the governor at Palácio dos Bandeirantes on Wednesday, 14.
With this schedule, the government of São Paulo maintains the date scheduled for the start of the immunization campaign, on December 15. The first immunized will be health professionals. Then educators and people with chronic diseases will be vaccinated.
The vaccination of the entire population of the state of São Paulo should last until the end of March. Two doses will be applied in an interval of 14 days. The entire process also depends on authorization from the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa).
The registration request was facilitated by an Anvisa ordinance, published in early October. Two days after publication, Butantan has already started the process, which is done continuously, in order to accelerate the authorization of vaccines against covid-19.
At the end of September, the government of São Paulo and the Sinovac laboratory signed an agreement for the purchase of 46 million doses of the vaccine for the state, 6 million of which were ready and the other 40 million were formulated by the Butantan Institute. By February 2021 there will be another 14 million doses, totaling 60 million.
