Portugal to receive 600,000 ‘new Covid vaccines’ next week

Health expert advocates ‘zero tolerance for vaccine wastage’

Pneumologist and specialist in intensive medicine Filipe Frões has told tabloid Correio da Manhã that, in his opinion, there should be a policy of ‘zero tolerance’ when it comes to vaccine wastage. The comment refers to both the flu and Covid-19 vaccines, which health authorities in Portugal are extending to younger age groups as initial target groups have not come forwards in the numbers anticipated.
