In the period from April 4 to June 3, 49,900 doses were administered for the prevention of influenza, 27.72% of the target audience
Persons from the priority groups for influenza vaccination and persons who have an indication for measles vaccination can be vaccinated until June 24. The Municipal Health Department (SMS) has joined the extension of the campaign, as announced by the Ministry of Health, given the low adherence to vaccines so far.
From April 4 to June 3, 49,900 doses of the flu vaccine, which prevents the flu, were administered in the municipality, ie 27.72% of the target audience, which is a total of 170,974. The vaccine offered by the Unified Health System (SUS) protects against three strains of influenza virus: type B, H1N1 and A H3N2, responsible for the outbreak late last year. Immunobiological protection provides protection against disease complications that can lead to hospitalization and death.
Of the MMR, which protects not only from smallpox but also from rubella and mumps, 7,268 doses were administered, of which 12.38% were children. The goal is to vaccinate 95% of children aged six months to four years. As far as public and private health workers are concerned, there is no set goal, as this public is updating the functional state.
The extension of the campaign aims to increase vaccination coverage, reduce the number of respiratory infections and, at the same time, reduce the demand for emergency units. “We have an increase in demand, especially among children and the pre-teen population in our emergency and emergency care network, almost all with respiratory syndromes. That is why it is very important to be able to prevent the main causes of respiratory infections, and one of them is the flu virus, and therefore we need the population to look for places to be vaccinated against influenza, but also against Covid, which is another cause of respiratory diseases. childhood and adolescence. The same must be done for those who are assigned to receive the smallpox vaccine, “said Rodrigo Carneiro, Undersecretary of Primary Health Care, Supervision and Health Promotion (Subpav).
