A nurse and another employee, working at the Noraldino Lima Health Center, in the western region of Belo Horizonte, are being investigated for allegedly leaking 12 doses of the influenza vaccine. The case occurred two weeks ago in the health center where they work, and the municipal inspector general is following up on it.

According to the complaint received by O Tempo, the nurse drew 12 doses of the vaccine into a syringe at the request of this health unit employee. According to the complaint, she requested the doses to vaccinate her family and friends, who would not be in the priority group to receive the vaccine.

The vaccines would have been administered outside the health centre, which constitutes an irregular practice. Only bedridden and weak patients can receive the vaccination at home with a license from the health center director.

In a memorandum, the Belo Horizonte City Council said, “The municipal health department received the complaint through the municipal inspector's office. The case is under investigation.” The Ministry of Interior has been questioned and the article will be updated with the situation.
