For those who started the vaccine cycle with Johnson’s Immunizer, you can now take another booster dose against Code-19. According to the Department of Health, more than 60,000 people in the Federal District received a dose of the vaccine. According to a technical note sent by Folder and following federal government regulations, Vaccination Points has the option to proceed with immunizations for this population from this Wednesday (22/6).

The Secretariat states that this measure does not apply, for example, to those who took the first and second dose of AstraZeneca, Pfizer or CoronaVac and then took Janssen’s booster. “The Ministry of Health saw the need to adopt a vaccination schedule for those who received Johnson in the primary scheme,” said Renata Brando, folder’s immunodeficiency disease manager.

For people between the ages of 18 and 39 who started their vaccination schedule with one dose of Johnson, the familiarity is to get the first dose, the first booster after two months and the second booster four more months later. Already health professionals or those over 40 should receive a third booster four more months later.

AstraZeneca, Janssen or Pfizer immunizers can be used in boosters. Pregnant or postpartum women who have started immunizations with Johnson should get the Pfizer vaccine or CoronaVac.

Christina Source, head of the advisory for mobilizing measures to combat local diseases, emphasized that the change was only for those who had started the vaccination cycle with Johnson. “This audience is made up mainly of teachers, homeless people, the disenfranchised population and the prison system workers who preferred to be vaccinated with Johnson,” he commented.

Manager Renata Brandão explained that those who had Johnson’s initial immunizations would now have the same dose as those who had received the vaccine from other manufacturers. That is, they will have three doses for people up to 39 years of age and four doses for people over 40 or health professionals.
