Three years after the first case of Covid-19 registered in the country, Brazil reached another sad milestone this Tuesday, March 28: 700,000 deaths caused by the disease.

The Ministry of Health says thousands of them could have different stories with a simple action: vaccination. In combating the biggest health crisis in the country’s history, science proves that the main form of protection against serious cases and deaths is the vaccine.

Increasing vaccination coverage against Covid-19 is a priority for the Ministry of Health, which launched the National Movement for Vaccination at the end of February. So far, more than 6 million bivalent booster doses have been given. However, it is important to emphasize that priority groups should seek a health unit.

“I want to call on everyone to unite for our national mobilization. Right now, we are vaccinating with a booster dose against Covid-19. We have to look to the past, but at the same time, state that the Ministry of Health can no longer incur in the error of not coordinating, not caring, not treating. We need to be united so that new tragedies are not repeated. We are in this fight together. The memory will not die”, says minister Nísia Trindade.

The vaccine that is now available free of charge in all health units in Brazil could have changed the lives of families who lost loved ones during the pandemic.
