The flu campaign will be extended from Saturday (25) to residents of 6 months of age, across the country, while vaccine stocks are past. Mobilization seeks to prevent complications from disease and reduce mortality and stress on the health system.
Anyone who belongs to the target audience and has not yet been vaccinated can also be vaccinated. To receive the flu shot, simply go to any vaccination center. The Unified Health System (SUS) has about 38,000 vaccine rooms spread across the country and the Department of Health has already distributed 80 million doses of influenza vaccine to states and the federal district.
So far, the mobilization against the disease has reached 53.5% vaccination coverage.
“The assumptions of successful vaccination campaigns are being fully met in our country. We have the vaccines, and we have an unprecedented ability to apply, thanks to the vaccinators who are in the vaccination rooms in Brazil. Last year, we had cases in several areas of the country due to the H3N2 strain. This year’s vaccine already protects against this strain and the previous one. “We need to fight these diseases,” Health Minister Marcelo Quiroga said. He appealed to the population so that the population can help increase immunization rates in Brazil.
