The Regional Health Directorate informs that inoculation with the AstraZeneca vaccine against covid-19 in the Autonomous Region of Madeira will resume on March 19, starting at 1 pm at the Funchal Vaccination Center, located in Madeira Tecnopolo.
Vaccination with the AstraZeneca vaccine will be resumed with teachers and non teaching staff, a group defined as a priority at this stage of the vaccination campaign.
This resolution is based on the decision taken by the European Medicines Agency (EMA), which reaffirmed today, March 18, that the AstraZeneca vaccine is safe and effective.
It should be remembered that until March 15, around 4000 people in the region were vaccinated with AstraZeneca belonging to other priority groups.
In addition to the vaccines that will be administered at Madeira Tecnopolo, on March 19, the vaccination of priority groups against Covid-19 will continue in the municipalities of Câmara de Lobos and Ponta do Sol.
