Covid-19: long lines and a lot of waiting mark the first day of vaccination for 66-year-olds in DF | Federal District

In Parque da Cidade, passwords were distributed so that the elderly could return home and return on Saturday morning. However, at other points this did not happen, and the queues persisted into the night. This morning, they went around and occupied kilometers on the tracks next to the gas stations, which opened at 9am.

This Saturday morning, at the drive-thru of Parque da Cidade, whoever had the password, distributed on the last night, was directed to a second row. By 12 noon, all the elderly who had a password had already been vaccinated, and those who were starting to receive the immunization were the elderly without a password, who arrived at the clinic at 6 am.

Until Friday, the information from the Department of Health was that 1,111 doses of vaccines would be made available to the elderly of 66 years. However, during the night, the folder informed that it made a change in the doses of the health posts, and managed to increase this amount to 3,600 doses.

This Saturday, the first dose will be applied to elderly people aged 66 and over, and the second dose of those who are scheduled for the date, until 5pm.
