The Brazilian city of São Paulo, which is estimated to have more than 12.3 million inhabitants, is said to have completely vaccinated its adult population against Covid-19. This is reported by the news portal G1, citing the city health authority.
According to Health Minister Edson Aparecido, the total number of people vaccinated with one or two doses of vaccine has exceeded the number of people over the age of 18 and corresponds to 100.03 percent of the officially registered population. On the one hand, this is due to the outdated census data; on the other hand, people from outside the city would have been immunized, among other things.
A total of 21,384,227 vaccine doses are said to have been administered in the city.
“This is a great victory for vaccination in Sao Paulo,” said Aparecido.
