The information released by the office of the Secretary of Health and Civil Protection of Madeira highlights that the campaign registered "strong adhesion" by the population, which resulted in the lack of these vaccines, which "were quickly exhausted".

This department of the Madeiran executive points out that "efforts have already been made with the objective of bringing forward the delivery of a new shipment of vaccines, initially scheduled for the end of October".

Due to this situation, the vaccination centres in operation “will only provide the population with the vaccine against covid-19”.

The note concludes that "as soon as more flu vaccines are received" the archipelago's health services will transmit the information to the population.
