Throughout the month of March, the daily moving average of vaccinations in Brazil experienced a positive increase of 123%. The number, however, still puts us in a position four times slower in daily vaccination compared to the United States. The information is disclosed by the portal Our World in Data, linked to the University of Oxford.
On Friday, 2, according to the monitor, Brazil distributed 0.24 doses to every 100 inhabitants. In the USA, the rate on the same day was 0.89. In order to have an idea of how much Brazil needs to speed up its vaccination, the Americans had a speed compared to the Brazilian one in January, when the first month of immunization ended. Since then, the country has accumulated successive highs until reaching today’s level – an average of 2.8 million doses per day.
The goal of the Minister of Health, Marcelo Queiroga, that the country would still reach the daily average of 1 million doses per day in the coming weeks, gives us an idea of the delay in the application of doses in the current vaccination program. The USA arrived at this amount, in moving averages, 40 days after the start of the vaccination. In Brazil, on the 40th day of vaccination, we applied 223,000 doses in 24 hours.
