Bolsonaro failed to stop the vaccination of children carried out by the WHO in Brazil

On Friday, Brazil began vaccinating children aged 5 to 11 against Covid-19 despite objections from President Jair Bolsonaro.
The new age group was approved for vaccination by the Anvisa health authorities a month ago.
More than 20 million children are eligible for the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccination if they have parental consent.
Children with health problems are priority groups for vaccination.
Bolsonaro has repeatedly criticized the move and insisted he would never vaccinate his 11-year-old daughter Laura.
Unvaccinated himself, Bolsonaro caused an uproar when he asked for the names of those responsible for approving the move to be made public.
An association representing Anvisa officials criticized Bolsonaro’s “fascist methods”.
