We are working tirelessly so that everyone in our municipality receives the vaccine.” stressed,

Vaccination takes place from Sunday to Sunday at four centers in the city: at Samu and at the Otoni Rodrigues Pátio de Eventos, it works on the drive-thru model, for people in cars; at Colégio 03 de Agosto and at Vitória Park Shopping, people should go on foot. The first three places receive the public from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, while Vitória Park Shopping follows the shopping center’s opening hours.

“It’s a huge joy. In the week that we surpassed the 100 thousand doses applied, let’s also thank God for being able to reach this audience. All adults in our city will be able to be vaccinated”, celebrated Mayor Paulo Roberto. The expectation is that with the arrival of more doses of the vaccine, the city will be able to further reduce the age range for vaccination.
