    Conass Opinion

    In a note released on Thursday (12), the National Council of Health Secretaries ( Conass) and the National Council of Municipal Health Secretariats (Conasems) expressed “deep regret at the recent decisions of the Ministry of Health in the operationalization of the National Vaccination Campaign against Covid-19, with guidelines without any prior consultation with the state and municipal representations of the management of the Unified Health System or even with the Technical Advisory Chamber of the National Immunization Program (PNI)”.

    According to the institutions, the measure puts “the main action to control the pandemic at risk”, in this case, the vaccines. “Despite the fact that vaccination has led to a significant reduction in cases and deaths, Brazil still has an epidemiological situation far from what can be considered comfortable, due to the emergence of new variants”, they argue about the importance of maintaining the immunization process .
