Unpleasant scenes in Odivelas as vaccine task force coordinator heckled and called ‘assassin’

There were unpleasant scenes outside a vaccination centre in Odivelas last night, as vaccine task force coordinator vice-admiral Gouveia e Melo arrived to accompany the vaccination process of 16-17 year olds. A small group of people, waving placards, heckled and repeatedly shouted the word “assassin”. The vice-admiral was flanked by police as he entered and left the building, and put the protest down to what he called “ignorance”.
