More than 11 thousand port workers have already been vaccinated in Paraná

More than 11,000 Paraná port workers received the first dose of vaccine against Covid-19. According to the Vacinometer of the Unified Health System, which gathers data updated in real time by the municipalities, 11,430 people included in this category received the first dose of the immunizing agent until this Thursday (17).

The numbers do not consider those who were vaccinated by age or comorbidity group. “The efficiency of the State Government and the city halls of the coast made the application happen very quickly, as the doses were arriving in the municipalities”, says Luiz Fernando Garcia, CEO of Portos do Paraná.

For him, vaccination provides more security for a category, which did not stop during the pandemic. “The care we adopted proved to be very effective, but the vaccine is essential. Immunization directly affects collective protection, interrupting transmission chains and containing the spread of the virus. In addition, vaccines protect against the most severe forms of the disease,” he adds.

Garcia remembers that all measures to control the disease continue, including 24-hour medical care, initial health screening, the obligation to use masks, availability of alcohol gel and sanitation stations.

The target audience of port workers will be readjusted in the coming days, but there is an expectation of reaching around 14 thousand people. The State Department of Health is working to update population estimates for the next edition of the State Vaccination Plan Against Covid-19.

ORDERING – The Contingency Committee – Covid-19, of Portos do Paraná, adopted as a criterion for organizing the vaccination lines of port workers the level of risk they were exposed to. Thus, workers on board, side and belt were preferably vaccinated.

“The division into groups was necessary due to the limited number of doses, which arrived in batches, and to avoid disturbances in the vaccination queue and that workers were also vaccinated according to risk exposure, which we treat as an order of priority”, explains João Paulo Ribeiro Santana, member of the Committee and environmental director of the public company.

“We followed all the guidelines and requirements of the city of Paranaguá, which conducted the process very efficiently. We also have the support of the entire port community, which understood the importance that the moment demands and acted with us with total transparency and zeal in the registration of workers”, he says.

CONTINUES – The vaccination of port workers continues in Paranaguá. The doses are applied according to availability and calendar of the city hall. The port groups are:

Group 1: Individual dock workers and OGMO; Pilotage; Tugboats; Port Authority; Appa outsourced companies, with a continuous service contract; Inspection agencies (Antaq, Internal Revenue Service, Map).

Group 2: Mooring Companies; Port Operators; Maritime Agencies; Lessees; Service providers that meet this group, as long as only onboard, side and strip workers (the list must be forwarded and signed by the contractors).

Group 3: Workers from port support companies and truck drivers registered with Sindicam Paranaguá.

Group 4: Baggers.

Group 5: Own employees of companies directly linked to the operation
