In brief

The Brazilian president on 10 March 2021, sanctioned Law 14.125/2021, authorizing private companies to purchase COVID-19 vaccines approved by the health regulatory agency (ANVISA). All doses must be reverted to the public healthcare system while priority groups are being vaccinated. After the vaccination of priority groups is completed, companies will be able to purchase the vaccines for their own use (distributing them free of charge), but 50% of the shots must still be reverted to the public healthcare system.
