Data from the National Vaccinometer show that demand for the Covid vaccine fell for the third consecutive month in Paraná. The results were included in a survey by the State Department of Health, Monday (9).
Vaccination has been declining since January, when the outbreak occurred. In that month, demand increased further in December, due to the arrival of the Ômicron variant and the deadline for the second dose for children and adolescents.

In February, 1,525,048 doses were requested; in March 1,099,093 and in April just over 856,300 doses.
“The low demand for Covid vaccine is usually due to a false belief in protection. There is also a calendar. Many people who receive the first two doses are discontinued from the clinic for further doses. But like any other virus, coronavirus vaccination may be needed, along with a second dose or additional dose. That is the direction of research and that is what we are bringing cities to the city ”, points out Neves.
