If the suspension of the AstraZeneca vaccine lasts for weeks, the return for the secondary schools to face-to-face education may be compromised.
The teachers and school assistants were to be vaccinated as of today, with this vaccination plan being suspended, the President of the Government expresses particular concern for 11 and 12-year-old students because of national examinations.
Still, he wants to believe that the AstraZeneca vaccine will soon be recommended again. Under penalty of also compromising the estimate of 70% of the vaccinated population by the end of the summer, a situation that will also affect the plans to hold the Festa da Flor in the beginning of autumn.
This afternoon there will be a meeting to reschedule the regional vaccination plan, namely with regard to teachers and assistants.
I believe most cases are from schools, their families and health professionals, we really don’t hear about other cases in day to day life, like bars, restaurants, supermarkets, padarias, and outside its virtually impossible to pick the virus up.
