Amid the Covid-19 CPI that is investigating the actions and omissions attributed to the federal government in the management of the pandemic in Brazil, the Ministry of Health announced, last Wednesday (12), the launch of an internet portal to monitor vaccination in the country.
Called "Portal Brasil # PátriaVacinada", the website aims to provide Brazilians with a web environment with up-to-date information on the distribution and application of immunizing doses in all states and the Federal District.
According to information from the Federal Data Processing Service (Serpro), the portal is an initiative of the Ministry of Health and the Presidency of the Republic, and is developed in partnership with the Secretariat of Digital Government (SGD) of the Ministry of Economy.
The launch took place at an event held by the Extraordinary Secretariat for Confronting Covid-19.
“The agency is responsible for implementing health policy actions to face Covid-19, in conjunction with state, municipal and Federal District managers, as well as defining and coordinating the actions of the National Vaccination Plan against Covid- 19 ”, explained Marcelo Queiroga, Minister of Health.

New portal and redesign of the old Coronavirus website
Among the actions mentioned by Queiroga is the reformulation of the old site Coronavirus, which originated the Portal Brasil # PátriaVacinada. According to Serpro, among the data made available on the portal are the number of doses distributed to states and municipalities, the number of people who have already been immunized (both with the first and second doses) and also the expectation of vaccine distribution for the next few months.
In addition, it is also possible to consult the measures that must be adopted to prevent Covid-19, the number of authorized beds and hospital drugs sent by the country and the list of immunizing adopted by the Unified Health System (SUS).
“The Portal will be constantly updated by the Ministry of Health's technicians based on the information provided by the states and municipalities. In addition to the number of doses of vaccines purchased and applied, the portal also provides information on the amounts spent by the Federal Government on the action, the status of the vaccines that will be available in the National Immunization Program (PNI), detailed schedule of deliveries and also a comparative chart of the evolution of vaccinees in Brazil and in the world ”, informs Serpro.
