UNHCR Brazil emphasizes that refugees and migrants have the full right to be vaccinated in Brazil. The vaccine, regardless of the manufacturer, is safe, free and acts directly in the prevention of the disease, stimulating the immune system of the human body to produce antibodies against COVID-19. We are certain that the way to overcome the pandemic is to vaccinate everyone. Therefore, we encourage you, refugee and migrant, to seek the vaccination post closest to your residence to get the vaccine and, in this way, protect yourself from COVID-19.
