The city of Rio de Janeiro applied 61,432 doses of vaccines to children and adolescents during the D-Day of the National Multivaccination Campaign, held yesterday (16). Eighteen vaccines were applied to protect against various diseases such as tuberculosis, hepatitis, yellow fever, measles, mumps, meningitis, among others.
THE campaign, which mobilizes all primary care units, began on the 1st and runs until October 29th. The objective is to regularize the vaccination booklet for children and adolescents up to 15 years of age across the country.
According to the Ministry of Health, since 2015, there has been a drop in vaccination coverage, aggravated by the arrival of the pandemic. Vaccination is important to prevent some diseases that have already been eradicated from causing worries again.
Among the immunizing agents that are part of the campaign are, for example, BCG, pentavalent, triple viral, tetraviral and triple bacterial. Due to the covid-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Health sent guidelines to states and municipalities to ensure health protocols, such as the use of masks, ventilated spaces and hand hygiene.
The folder informs that there is no restriction for adolescents from 12 to 15 years old who were vaccinated against covid-19 a few days ago to receive the other immunizing agents. It is not necessary to wait for any window of time between applications.
