This Saturday, the 17th, takes place the “D” day of the National Vaccination Campaign against Polio and Multivaccination 2020, from the Ministry of Health (MS). The Blumenau City Hall through the Health Promotion Secretariat (Semus) will offer one more place to immunize children and adolescents. In addition to the health units with an active vaccine room, the Vila Germânica Park Clinic will be open and will attend on a first-come, first-served basis, from 8 am to 5 pm.
The opening of the space was an alternative found by Semus to expand vaccination coverage, which is much lower than expected. Until Thursday, the 15th, 2,279 were vaccinated against Poliomyelitis – only 14.61% of the 15,597 thousand children aged one to five, as estimated by the Ministry of Health.
On Saturday, the units with an active vaccine room will also be open from 8 am to 5 pm to attend without the need for an appointment – check the list here. It is important to always be attentive to the vaccination booklet, and to have it in hand when looking for the health unit. Children and adolescents who have delayed vaccines may also be immunized.
The National Campaign continues until October 30th. During the week, in the morning, the Family Health Strategy (FHS) units are responding to appointments made by phone or in the unit itself, according to the coverage area.
In the afternoon, appointments are made to appointments through the Pronto Mobile application or through the City Hall website – on this link. The ESF’s vaccination rooms are open from 8:30 am to 11:30 am and from 1:15 pm to 3:30 pm. The General Ambulatory (AGs), on the other hand, attend online appointments throughout the day.
Campaign against Polio
Simultaneously with the National Multivaccination Campaign 2020, there is a campaign against Poliomyelitis, the droplet. In this action, the estimate of the MS is to immunize about 15 thousand children aged between one and five years old. The goal is to prevent the population from polio, a contagious disease that attacks the neurological system and can cause paralysis.
