See the documents needed to vaccinate against Covid-19 in the 3rd stage, scheduled for April – Metro

As the third phase of the vaccination campaign against Covid-19 in Ceará approaches, it is necessary to pay attention to the scale of priorities in order not to miss the turn in line. In the coming weeks, especially between the end of April and the beginning of May, the State should move towards the stage of immunizing people with comorbidities and permanent disabilities. But what documents are needed to guarantee the priority right of access to the vaccine?

Since the beginning of the campaign, the main documents required by vaccinators are:

  • Photo ID (RG, driver’s license or work permit)
  • Proof of residence updated (electricity or water bill, for example)

However, in anticipation of the next stage, the most current version of the Operationalization Plan for the Vaccination against Covid-19 in Ceará, released on Wednesday (31) by the State Government, advises that municipalities organize themselves to charge for people with comorbidities, also, the presentation of supporting documents such as:

  • Medical prescription specifying the reason for the indication of the vaccine;
  • Medical reports issued in the last 60 days.

The plan also details that, in this case, “prescriptions for medications or complementary exams will only be accepted with the previous documents” and that the evidences must be digitized or filed by the city halls for future audits.

In the case of people with permanent disability, which includes, for example, tracheostomized people, with rare syndromes or with physical disabilities, the governmental recommendation is to present:

  • Prescription, medical report or report by a health professional that demonstrates belonging to some risk group or meeting the listed criteria;
  • Proof of participation in public programs and / or policies aimed at people with disabilities, such as Continuous Payment Benefit (BPC), free pass and others.

Focus of the third stage of the vaccination campaign, the group with comorbidities and permanent disabilities in Ceará is estimated at just over one million people, a number that alone represents 69,3% of the total population prioritized in the first and second stages.
