The Ministry of Health has set a goal of immunizing at least 90% of each of the priority groups against influenza. The only contraindication to the application of the vaccine is for people who are allergic to egg protein or who have had a severe (anaphylactic) reaction when receiving the vaccine in previous campaigns.
The first phase of the influenza vaccination campaign continues until April 30 and beyond the Karajas point, the vaccine is available, Monday through Friday, at health units in Maceió.
To get vaccinated, seniors must present their vaccination card and photo ID. On the other hand, health workers need to provide an original and a copy of documents that prove their current professional practice, such as a class board card, badge, updated salary, or a statement from the health institution in which they work or are carrying out a training course. Copies of these vouchers will be kept by the vaccination team.
The second phase of the campaigns will take place between May 2 and June 3. At this point, immunization against influenza and measles serves children from the age of 6 months to less than 5 years (4 years, 11 months and 29 days).
In the second phase, pregnant and postpartum women, teachers, people with comorbidities, people with permanent disabilities, professionals from the security and rescue forces, the armed forces, truck drivers and urban and long-distance workers, port workers, prison system personnel, adolescents and young adults from ages 12 to 21 general population who are subject to socio-educational measures, as well as to the population deprived of their liberty.
