FIRST COVID-19 VACCINE HAS BEEN ADMINISTERED IN PORTUGAL

The national vaccination plan against covid-19 started today at the Hospital de São João, in Porto, with the infectious disease doctor António Sarmento receiving the first dose by the nurse Isabel Ribeiro.

The first vaccine was administered at 10:07 am to António Sarmento under the eye of Minister Marta Temido and in front of dozens of camera flashes and TV cameras and to the sound of applause.

The administration took place in zone K5, which is usually reserved for external consultations at Hospital de São João.

The director of infectious disease services, António Sarmento, 65, who has been working at this health unit for 42 years, was the first to be vaccinated.
