Bolsonaro blames vaccine firms for not rushing up
Jair Bolsonaro said on Monday “laboratories are the ones that should be interested in selling the vaccine,” stating that the 210 million inhabitants country is “a huge consumer market
“People say I have to go after [the companies]. No, who wants to sell [have to sell]”.
Bolsonaro also suggested that anyone who was infected with the coronavirus should not get the vaccine.
"Who has been infected, like me, has to take it again?" he asked. "Scientific studies have already shown that even those who have already been infected can be reinfected."
