the senator Flávio Bolsonaro (Patriot), 40 years old, received this Thursday, 22, the first dose of the vaccine against the Covid-19. The immunizing agent was applied in parliament by the Minister of Health, Marcelo Queiroga. “I just got vaccinated against Covid. Minister Marcelo Queiroga vaccinated me with AstraZeneca/Fiocruz, produced in Rio de Janeiro, effective and much cheaper than other manufacturers”, announced the senator. Flávio took the opportunity to congratulate the work of his father, the president Jair Bolsonaro (no party) “Thanks to ‘denier’ Jair Bolsonaro for guaranteeing the vaccine in the arms of all Brazilians”, he declared. In a video posted on their social networks, Flávio appears alongside the minister of Health, who defends the vaccine for AstraZeneca/Oxford.

“The technology transfer agreement that the federal government made with the AstraZeneca laboratory so that Brazil could manufacture these vaccines and the IFA resulted in a safe, effective, effective and cost-effective vaccine,” began the minister. “It has already been incorporated into the Unified Health System (SUS) and the analyzes carried out by the National Incorporation Commission (Conitec) predict that [a aplicação do imunizante] generates savings of R$ 150 billion when comparing the possible expenses with Covid-19 with the expenses of the vaccine.” Queiroga also spoke about the positive effects of immunization on the population, such as the drop in the number of cases, hospitalizations and deaths from the disease. “And the results are already there. A drop in the number of cases, less pressure on the health system and a reduction in deaths for our lives to return to normal”, concluded the minister.
