Madeira has already chosen the name of the one who will be the first to receive the vaccine against covid-19 and promises to surprise.
The guarantee is from the regional secretary of Health and Civil Protection and was given to JM a few moments ago on the sidelines of the visit that the Government made to the new meteorological station, installed in the Regional Civil Protection Service of Madeira.
Pedro Ramos refuses to say which health professional is about to receive the first dose of this long-awaited vaccine. Pfizer currently has a technician at the hospital dr. Nélio Mendonça giving training on the vaccine.
Regarding the new strain and when asked if anything changes in the vaccination plan and also in the measures to be taken this year, Pedro Ramos rested the Madeirans referring to three situations. First, all detected cases of the new variant have undergone prophylactic isolation. Second, those who violated the rules (such as the couple who managed to travel to Madeira) were prevented from leaving the airport, having returned to their country of origin. Third: UK tourists are prohibited from traveling.
