Next Friday (30), the Oswaldo Cruz Foundation will deliver an average of 6,5 million doses of the Astrazeneca / Oxford. The action is the largest delivery of immunizers made at Fiocruz so far. Last Friday (23), more than 20 million doses were delivered to the Ministry of Health, with 16 million produced by the institution itself.
In total, there will be 26,5 million. In May, the forecast is to provide 21,5 million doses and in June, Fiocruz aims to deliver 34,2 million doses of vaccine. For the month of July, the programmed estimate is 22 million. On the other hand, to fulfill the contract to deliver 100 million doses by July, new IFA shipments must arrive from China.
In August, Fiocruz may not be able to produce doses due to lack of active pharmaceutical input. Therefore, the delivery of doses made with the IFA produced in the Brazil will stay for the month of October, which could harm the vaccine production line.
The foundation has two alternatives to try to prevent a problem in the delivery of the vaccine. The first is to obtain a new contract for the supply of the pharmaceutical China and the second is the contracting of new ready-made doses.
