SAO PAULO (Reuters) – The National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa) on Saturday determined the precautionary ban on batches of Chinese vaccine against Covid-19 CoronaVac, prohibiting the distribution and use of batches in a plant not approved in the emergency use authorization , said the regulator in a statement.

According to the statement, Anvisa was informed the day before by the Butantan Institute that Sinovac, the manufacturer of CoronaVac, sent to Brazil 25 batches in the vial-ampoule presentation (single dose and two doses), totaling 12,113,934 doses.
