“My father took the first dose of the vaccine on February 10, and I’m all happy he should have returned on March 3. Fatima Regina de Souza Miguel explains that he marked the lot on the card and took it from a boutonniere called Coronavac.
According to Fatima, the day after taking the second dose, she left her father in the car and asked a professional to vaccinate the elderly. “I told the two nurses who came to me that he was going to take the second dose of butane, she filled out some papers, took the vaccination card and went to the hospital to get the vaccine. In that room, I informed a third nurse that I was going to take the second dose of coronavirus. ”
The daughter reports that the couple happily left, believing their father would get the right vaccine, but hours later, when professionals arrived at their home, they reported that they had been vaccinated with the Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccine.
“The nurse who applied and the nurse’s head and a third person came to my door. I was scared and I asked what had happened and they said my father had not taken the vaccination dose from Butanton. I froze, thinking there would be a reaction. He has nothing, OK ”.
On the day of the incident, Fatima was told that her father could be monitored for reactions, but even so, the elderly had to take the second dose of the Oxford vaccine, scheduled for May 26. Described in the Vaccination Voucher.
“How am I going to tell my dad that I spent all the time waiting for the vaccine and that I took the second dose thinking I would have immunity and now I have to wait another two months at home?”, He said. Asks.
“I was afraid the vaccine was right, and I warned him. When the nurse came to the door of my house, I told her I had not spoken once or twice. I told her three times that I would take the second dose. I found an absurd, absurd error,” says Fatima.
Different vaccine doses
According to infectious disease doctor Ivaldo Stanislav, no further studies have been done on this subject, but no adverse events have occurred. “Immunity comes in one form or another. Given the time between large doses of Oxford / AstraZeneca vaccines, I recommend making a second dose three months after the “first” – this was the second dose, he explains.
Experts say it is important to pay attention in these situations but this may change in the future. In the future, as more brands become available, it is possible to make available vaccines on each vaccination cycle (say each year).
