Such a batch cropped up from March´s agreement signed by Brazil´s Health Ministry and the US Pharmaceutical Company for the purchase and delivery of about 100 million vaccine doses.

Added to previous batches, over 5.8 million doses have been sent so far and, according to Pfizer, the vaccines sent to Brazil stem from its own plant in Kalamazoo (United States).

A 936,000-vaccine batch arrived on Wednesday at the Viracopos Airport in Sao Paulo. The Pfizer Pharmaceutical Company is expected to send as many as 12 million anti-Covid-19 vaccine doses to Brazil in June, the Health Ministry live-tweeted.

Throughout 2021, a total of 200 million vaccine doses will be sent to Brazil.

Pfizer sent the National Sanitary Surveillance Agency a request to extend the age range for its antigen indication.

So far, the two antidotes that are being applied in Brazil are those produced by the University of Oxford (United Kingdom) in association with the Anglo-Swedish Company AstraZeneca, and CoronaVac, from the Chinese Biopharmaceutical Company Sinovac.
