9,800 port workers receive 1st dose of Covid-19 vaccine in Paraná

In less than three days, 9,800 dockworkers from Paraná received the first dose of the vaccine against the coronavirus, in Paraná. Vaccination, in record time, prioritized employees who work on board ships, alongside and in the port. The number of doses exceeded the total sent by the Ministry of Health and it will be necessary to wait for the sending of a new batch for vaccination to be resumed.

Just this Sunday (30), 3,062 professionals were immunized by the Municipal Health Department of Paranaguá. Organized into five groups, with the support of the Committee to Combat Covid-19, from Portos do Paraná, from 11 am last Friday (28) until 6 pm today (30), 9,110 workers received the vaccine in the city . The number represents approximately 6% of the city’s population.

In Antonina, 690 port workers were immunized with the first dose, in this first shipment.

“This brings us comfort, joy. But we know that security measures need to continue to be followed. Therefore, we will continue to adopt all the practices started in March of last year. The vaccine is yet another safety factor for workers who are in the port area, essential for the continuity of services”, says the CEO of Portos do Paraná, Luiz Fernando Garcia.

The mayor of Paranaguá, Marcelo Roque, said this Sunday afternoon (30) that a new shipment of vaccines is expected to continue the immunization of other ports. “Now we need to wait for the arrival of more doses to continue the immunization of port workers. Our intention is to vaccinate 100%”, said the mayor on his social networks.

NEXT – The Covid-19 Committee, of the public company, will continue meeting throughout the week to take stock, together with the municipalities, regarding the immunized, according to the list of the five pre-organized groups.

“We have worked tirelessly over the last week, and we will continue to do so to ensure that everyone who is able to this stage of prioritizing the National and State vaccination plans receives the immunization agents”, says the Director of Environment at Portos do Paraná, João Paulo Ribeiro Santana.

According to him, as soon as a new shipment arrives, the organization of workers will be guaranteed, to facilitate the work of the municipality. “We have a lot to thank the City Hall team, the Municipal Health Department, who worked hard for this stage of immunization to happen with organization and safety”, he adds.
