Joaquim Ferreira, Professor of Pharmacology and Neurology at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Lisbon, told SIC Notícias  that the data obtained so far demonstrate that the vaccine (against covid-19) is effective and safe. According to the Professor, "effectiveness from the point of view of protecting the community will only be achieved if almost the entire population accepts to be vaccinated".

He stressed that it is necessary for vaccines to arrive quickly and for the most fragile people to be vaccinated. And he ended by emphasising that, so far, the data obtained “reinforce the notion of security”.
