Brazilian Air Force transports vaccines to the far north of the country

On January 29, the Brazilian Air Force transported 226 doses of the vaccine against the new Coronavirus to the city of Uiramuta. According to the Ministry of Health, immunizers are intended for people from risk groups such as indigenous people, the elderly, and health professionals. With this, the FAB employed a C-98A Caravan aircraft, belonging to Wing 7, in Boa Vista, RR, in support of Operation “COVID-19”. This town is in the extreme north of the state of Roraima, and is home to large indigenous reserves. One of the pilots of the aircraft, Lieutenant Aviator Renato Valim Klink, showed his joy in accomplishing the mission. “I had the happy opportunity to transport the vaccines. In this very delicate moment that we are going through, taking vaccines is the beginning of overcoming all the difficulties we have been experiencing since last year”, guarantees the Lieutenant. – https://contatoradar.com.br/2021/01/fab-transporta-vacinas-para-o-extremo-norte-do-pais/
