THE Supreme Federal Court (STF) formed a majority to ensure that States can purchase vaccines against Covid-19 in case of lack of doses by the Federal government. The acquisition may be made if the Union does not comply with the National Immunization Plan (PNI), developed by the Ministry of Health. In addition, the Court also authorized the import of immunizers without the approval of the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) provided the vaccines have been approved by renowned regulatory agencies outside Brazil. The discussion is taking place this Tuesday, the 23rd, in a virtual plenary session, and has, so far, had six favorable votes out of the eleven possible. The minister voted in favor of the measure Cármen Lúcia and the ministers Alexandre de Moraes, Dias Toffoli, Edson Fachin, Marco Aurelio e Ricardo Lewandowski, who is the case reporter. Ministers still need to vote Nunes Marques, Rosa Weber, Luis Roberto Barroso, Gilmar Mendes e Luiz Fux, President of the Court.

The thesis, which should be made official at the end of the trial at the Supreme Court, further determines that vaccines that may be eventually purchased by state governments must have been approved by Anvisa within 72 hours. If this does not happen, immunizers can be purchased if they have been approved by renowned U.S, Japan, China and some countries in the Europe. The decision is being made based on an action by the Federal Council of the Brazilian Bar Association that alleges inaction in the government of Jair Bolsonaro due to the delay in presenting a national vaccination plan against the disease.
