A Rio de Janeiro Municipal Health Department issued a statement late this Saturday, 3, stating that, after performing a rechecagem of the data of all 756 vaccinated people suspected of having received AstraZeneca doses supposedly expired, found that he had not received or applied immunization after the expiration date. In a statement, the folder said that it was able to contact 741 patients, but that in none of these cases there was application of a dose beyond the expiration date of the immunizing agent.
According to the secretariat, “the records of these cases contained errors in the system and the vast majority have already been corrected,” he claimed in a note. “The others are in the process of adjusting. The other 15 records are still under investigation, as there was no success in the attempts to contact users, but there is no indication that there was an application with expired doses in these cases”, completed the folder linked to the City Hall of Rio de Janeiro. “In view of the more than 4.1 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines applied in the Municipality of Rio, the records identified with errors in filling in the information represent a very small portion of the vaccination campaign, which, since its inception, has been read. with possible episodes of instability in the Information System of the National Immunization Program”, he added.
A @Health_Rio, after performing, since the afternoon of this Friday (2), the rechecking of the data of all 756 suspected of having received doses allegedly overdue, reaffirms that he did not receive overdue doses and none of its units applied overdue doses. https://t.co/uRmq8sDUkT
