“Cases are going to increase and this will increase the outbreak”

There is a direct correlation for most of the population studying COVID or knowing that someone in the environment has the disease with the decision to inject a vaccine booster. If the number of cases is small then the risk perception becomes commensurate. With a low likelihood of complications, vaccination is redundant in health positions.

Health Minister Carolina Centeno urged the application of vaccine reinforcements against the coronavirus, in order to mitigate the effects of the increase in cases.

A few days ago, a meeting of the Federal Council of Health (COFESA) was held, a venue in which ministers agreed to ramp up vaccination campaigns as cases surged by 50 per cent in the past week and the rising curve for Entering was expected to come.

When asked about the possibility of taking restrictive measures, Centeno indicated that actions along these lines were not being studied and that as the decree enabled the use of chinstraps, it should once again be mandated in closed spaces. It would be necessary to have In the tests, what has been observed is a rebound in positivity, which jumped from 4 to 11 per cent, meaning there is more viral circulation.


In the province, the percentage of adherence to vaccination campaigns is in line with what is happening at the country level, which is known as the full plan (first and second dose) and then declines when it comes to reinforcement.

Thus, middle-aged people or older adults are the ones who most commonly applied booster doses, and vice versa, with the prevalence of the condition being higher in an older age group than in a younger person. The score does not exceed the third or fourth dose.
