The country’s data, collected until 8 pm, are the result of a collaboration between Folha, UOL, O Estado de S. Paulo, Extra, O Globo and G1 to gather and disseminate figures related to the coronavirus pandemic.
The information is collected by the consortium of press vehicles daily with the State Health Departments.
In all, 182,154,138 people received at least the first dose of a vaccine against Covid in Brazil.
Adding the single doses of Janssen vaccine, there are 171,642,102 people with both doses or with one dose of Janssen vaccine.
Thus, the country already has 84.79% of the population with the 1st dose and 79.90% of Brazilians with two doses or one dose of the Janssen vaccine.
To date, 105,335,277 people have taken the third dose, and 35,125,942 the fourth.
Alagoas and Mato Grosso did not update vaccine information.
The initiative of the consortium of press vehicles occurred in response to the attitudes of the Jair Bolsonaro (PL) government, which threatened to withhold data, delayed newsletters about the disease and took information from the air, with the interruption of the disclosure of the totals of cases and deaths.
