The President of the Chamber of Deputies, Rodrigo Maia (DEM-RJ), said today that he defends the distribution of CoronaVac, vaccine against covid-19 developed by the Chinese laboratory Sinovac in partnership with the Butantan Institute, for all Brazilians if it is approved by Anvisa (National Health Surveillance Agency). Maia participated in a press conference with the governor of São Paulo, João Doria (PSDB), at the Palácio dos Bandeirantes.
The deputy said that the moment is for dialogue between all parties and informed that he received contacts from other deputies who support the national distribution of the immunizer. Doria, at the end of the press conference, said he was “open to dialogue”.
This week, CoronaVac’s distribution was at the center of a new clash between President Jair Bolsonaro (without a party) and the governor of São Paulo. Behind the scenes, the comment that the race for the covid-19 vaccine gained the air of an electoral race gains strength.
Maia defended the distribution by SUS (Unified Health System) of the vaccine against covid-19 developed and tested by the Butantan Institute and by the Sinovac laboratory.
“I’m sure the president will listen to our calls and we will not need any other way. The president has had a good dialogue with Parliament, he has been positive, and this can be a good instrument for organizing what is disorganized, but it needs to be organized . Brazilians need to be entitled to the vaccine “, said Maia.
The Mayor recalled that CoronaVac still needs to be approved by Anvisa. If this happens, he says he will work to make this vaccine and other immunizations against covid-19 available in the public health system.
“When she [Coronavac] is approved and authorized by Anvisa that we can achieve with dialogue with the president, with the Ministry of Health, that this dialogue already exists, with the National Congress, can authorize not only this vaccine for Brazilians, but all vaccines that are approved “said Maia.
The call for dialogue marked Maia’s demonstrations during the interview. He went so far as to call Doria an “ally” and “friend”, but said that that does not mean that he is “against the federal government”. The deputy avoided criticizing Bolsonaro and said that his mission will be to seek the best understanding between the parties.
“It is up to us to build the path to be able to vaccinate all Brazilians. I prefer to continue in the line of expanding dialogue. São Paulo has made a huge effort, like Fiocruz [responsável pelos testes com a AstraZeneca, outra vacina que está na fase final de testes] has done, to save life and resume normality “, he said.
Despite criticizing Bolsonaro several times during the press conference, Doria said he is “open to dialogue” and “building a program that allows Brazilians to be saved by the vaccine, by the correct orientation, by compassion, by distancing themselves from ideological positions”. “The president just needs to invite me and I will be in Brasilia for the dialogue. At the same time. I am willing to dialogue and invite you, the president, to do the same.”
As well as defending the internal dialogue, Maia also avoided indisposition with another country involved in this week’s discussions. “Brazil does not have to have no problem with China, “he said.
The alignment of the Plateau with the United States means that there are reserves for China, the country of the Sinovac laboratory.
Asked about the defense of Doria by the mandatory vaccine, Rodrigo Maia declined to comment. “From a technical point of view, I have no way of saying whether it has to be mandatory. It is not for me to argue.”
But, then, the deputy reaffirmed the previous position that CoronaVac or any other vaccine that has Anvisa approval be distributed to all Brazilians. “All the Brazilians, with an approved vaccine, must have the right to this vaccine “, he said.

During the week, CoronaVac became the main theme of the dispute between Doria and President Jair Bolsonaro. On Tuesday (20), Health Minister Eduardo Pazuello announced during a videoconference with 24 governors the intention to purchase the first 46 million doses of CoronaVac that should be available by December. Doria even celebrated the announcement, as did other governors.
On Wednesday morning (21), however, Bolsonaro said he did not approve the agreement and said he had the purchase canceled, disallowing Pazuello. Soon after the statement, Maia canceled a meeting she had set up with Doria in Brasília, claiming indisposition. The São Paulo governor continued to fulfill his agenda in the federal capital and criticized Bolsonaro’s attitude several times.
Bolsonaro repeated that the vaccine is Chinese and has not yet been approved by Anvisa. However, the federal government has already made a commitment to invest almost R $ 2 billion in the Oxford vaccine, developed by the University of Oxford and by the Astrazeneca laboratory, which is also in the testing phase, such as CoronaVac.
Just the day before yesterday, Doria gave a period of 48 hours, which ends today, for the federal government to reverse the breach of the agreement made by CoronaVac.
Yesterday, Pazuello, who is recovering from covid-19, said alongside Bolsonaro that “one commands, the other obeys”, indicating that he will not contest the president’s decision on the Butantan vaccine.
