Colonel Penha-Gonçalves said that, at the moment, 90% of the population has started their vaccination and 88% has completed vaccination.

There is a fraction of the population that is still waiting for the second dose because they are not yet eligible, mostly children who were vaccinated on December 18 and 19, explained the representative of the Covid-19 Vaccination Plan Coordination Nucleus.

“With regard to the age profile of primary vaccination (…) we have high rates of vaccination up to the age of 20 and from there onwards we are now vaccinating children between 11 and 5 years old
