Man goes to court for SUS to confirm third dose of vaccine against Covid-19

Man goes to court for SUS to confirm third dose of vaccine against Covid-19

The decision of the First Federal Court of Campo Grande obliges Data SUS (SUS Informatics Department) to include the certificate of application of the third dose of the vaccine against Covid-19 to a man from the capital, who confirmed that he had received a booster dose of the immunizing agent, but the information was not disclosed. As a result, he found himself at a loss.

A summons data request – which ensures access to and correction of information – has been submitted to demand that the complainant’s data be corrected, in order to include the application of the third dose of the vaccine on December 1, at the Albano Franco Center by car, including the type of vaccine applied (Pfizer) and the vaccine.

This measure was necessary to ensure that the plaintiff received a ticket to Madrid, where he must travel in June of this year. Spain, like other countries, requires a health passport to allow entry to Brazilians. The Spanish Embassy requires the presentation of the certificate issued by Data SUS to release entry into the country.

The problem is that until the lawsuit was filed, the Conect SUS system — which includes entering and displaying data on the novel coronavirus vaccination — had not included the third dose in the plaintiff’s data. Two administrative requests to correct the information were submitted, which had general responses and were not met.

“Every individual has the right to correct incorrect information in public databases and, as in the present case, sensitive data, within the legal term. Thus, there is no other alternative for the plaintiff than to provide existing habeas corpus statements,” the lawsuit cites.

According to the responsible judge, “a subpoena is a procedural tool that is provided to an individual or legal entity to ensure access and knowledge of records of information relating to the person or activity of the applicant, as well as to enable him to correct said information.”

In this procedure, the intent was to correct information about doses of vaccines already received that were incompletely included in the Conect SUS, which was also substantiated by documents proving an attempt, without success, to correct the data by administrative means. Given the evidence that the author had been immunized and the risk of international travel, Data SUS was given a five-day period to correct the information.

The decision of the First Federal Court of Campo Grande was published on Friday (4) in the Federal Justice Gazette.
