From October 5 to 30, the National Vaccination Campaign against Polio and Multivaccination takes place, in an initiative of the Ministry of Health, through the General Coordination of the Immunization Program, together with the state and municipal health departments. In the municipality there are 5,504 children in the age group covered by the campaign.
Polio vaccines should be given to children from one year to under five, with different strategies for children under one year of age and for those aged 1 to 4 years of age. The target audience for multivaccination is children and adolescents under 15 years of age. Routine vaccines will be offered in order to improve vaccination coverage and rescue the unvaccinated population or with incomplete vaccination schedules.
The campaign will take place between the 5th and the 30th of October, with the verification and updating of the vaccination booklet being carried out in the basic health units Central, São Francisco, Santa Terezinha and Chácaras.
On Saturday, October 3, from 8 am to 12 noon, it will be carried out at UBS Fenachamp, the checking of the passbook and all vaccines will be available to the population of the neighborhood.
The campaign’s D-Day takes place on Saturday, October 17, when the UBSs will be open from 8 am to 5 pm, without closing at noon, exclusively for vaccination.
It is essential that the entire target population comes to health services with a vaccination booklet, identity document (RG) and SUS card, so that professionals can assess whether there is a vaccine that has not yet been administered or if there are doses that need to be applied to complete the vaccination schedule.
We are still in time to contain the coronavirus pandemic, so it is requested that only one adult is accompanying the child. All precautions regarding social distance, use of masks and gel alcohol will be maintained.
Any doubts about the maintenance of vaccines, in all age groups, can be clarified with the UBSs, or by calling (54) 3462-8138.
