Vaccination against Covid-19 began in Brazil on January 17, shortly after the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) approved the emergency use of CoronaVac, produced by the Chinese laboratory Sinovac in partnership with the Butantan Institute.

Nurse Mônica Calazans, 54, who lives in Itaquera, in the East Zone of São Paulo, was the first person, outside of clinical studies, to receive the vaccine.

The Brazilian National Immunization Program (PNI) started on January 18th, and started to be made after the distribution of the 6 million doses of CoronaVac imported already ready from China.

In the state of São Paulo, vaccination started with frontline health professionals in the fight against coronavirus, indigenous people, quilombolas and the elderly who lived in institutions and has been expanding the target population according to the availability of the vaccine.
