Less than 20% of children in DF were vaccinated on D-day


The National Vaccination Campaign against the disease held D-Day this Saturday (17th), but it is still far from reaching 95% vaccinated. In the Federal District, only 19.7% of children older than 1 year and under 5 were vaccinated against polio.

The number reached 31,700 boys and girls. Who has not vaccinated their children, there is still time. The campaign runs until the 30th of this month and there are 135 rooms open for this purpose only.

In addition to vaccination against polio, the rooms are also open for updating the vaccine booklet. Adolescents under the age of 15 must attend the venues to receive any vaccines that are missing.

To date, 68,513 children and adolescents up to 15 years have attended the vaccination rooms. Of this total, 42,193 had a pending dose and completed the vaccination card. In the period from January to April this year, none of the vaccines on the children’s calendar reached the goals recommended by the Ministry of Health.
