The low demand in the first two days of influenza vaccination in children aged 6 months to 5 years is concerned about incomplete Municipal Health Authority (AMS) in Abukarana. In two days of the campaign, around 300 children were vaccinated. The goal is to immunize 7698.
Anticipating a flu shot was a strategy adopted by the city council after increasing, between March and April, 300% of cases of respiratory illness in children.
“This worrying situation has an exacerbating factor: many children with respiratory illness very quickly develop a serious health condition, and are affected by pneumonia,” warns Mayor Vimack Jr., who has appealed to parents and guardians.
Vaccine doses are available Monday through Friday at 26 UBS with room and vaccine between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Vaccination can still be guaranteed at three UBSs open in service, on weekdays from 9am to 9pm and on Saturdays and Sundays from 7am to 7pm.
“We are concerned that in the first two days of vaccination, which began yesterday, only about 300 doses were applied, that is, 3.9% of the target audience,” Emídio Bachiega stated.
We have enough vaccines, about 10,000 doses. However, to ensure the protection of our children, we rely on the commitment of parents and guardians. Children’s health should be a priority for everyone,” promotes Junior of Vimac.
Another great opportunity to vaccinate children will be next Saturday (30), when the D-Day of the National Influenza Vaccination Campaign, which in this first phase includes people aged 60 years, will take place.
