Academies, clubs, training centers, stadiums, cinemas, theaters, children’s recreation places, museums, exhibitions, theme and water parks, in addition to trade fairs, conventions and conferences in the city will now require proof of vaccination.
It is not mandatory that citizens of all ages have completed the vaccination schedule, but it is necessary to show that they are within the deadline to wait for the application of the second dose. Therefore, people between 40 and 49 years old should have the second dose from October 1st. For adults aged 30 to 39, the second dose is required from November 1st. From 18 to 29 years old, the date will be November 15th.
In addition to the paper vaccination card, the certificate can also be obtained in digital format either through the ConnectSUS application or through the Ministry of Health website (click here to access).
The decree of the Municipality of Rio de Janeiro would take effect from September 1st, but a failure in the Ministry of Health’s application caused Mayor Eduardo Paes (PSD) to postpone the measure. The City Hall foresees a fine of R$1,000 for those who try to circumvent proof of the vaccine.
Last Tuesday (14), Paes justified the measure: “What is important to understand about the passport is that it is precisely so that the city can return to normal, so that people can go back to attending public spaces,” he said. the mayor.
