The general coordinator of the Communicable Disease Surveillance Department of the Health Ministry of Health, José Ricardo Pio Marins, said the Ministry of Agriculture made the decision to authorize a vaccine against leishmaniasis without consulting the Ministry of Health "request more data about vaccine safety, which, if not confirmed, the registration may be canceled, "he said.

The Master of Preventive Veterinary Medicine and Epidemiology and a PhD in Parasitology, Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG) Victor Márcio Ribeiro, however, contradicted the Ministry of Health, stating that there are options of safe vaccines developed in Brazil.

The rapporteur of PL 1738/11 establishing a national animal vaccination against leishmaniasis, Deputy Mandetta (DEM-MS), questioned the fact that the Ministry of Agriculture has recognized a vaccination against leishmaniasis is a little over a month. "My vote will be based on technical and scientific data," he said.

During the public hearing organized by the Committee of Social and Family to discuss the Draft Law 1738/11, which mandates the annual vaccination of dogs and cats against leishmaniasis, the rapporteur was handed a petition with 15,000 signatures asking approval of the project.
