Private employers may also establish in their internal provisions the obligation for their employees to apply the vaccination scheme against COVID-19.

Vaccination is not mandatory for the general public.

Public institutions must present a report on the vaccination

Casa Presidencial is also requiring ministries and institutions of the public sector to present a report on the vaccination of their personnel on November 5.

In the ordinary session cabinet on Tuesday, October 12, Geannina Dinarte, Minister of the Presidency, explained that the report will have the number of personnel with a complete scheme, the number of people with first doses, the number with a certificate of medical contraindication for this immunization and the number of unvaccinated people.

For this, the entities must verify the vaccination of each employee, as well as the medical justification of those people who have contraindications.
