In the last week & # 39; vaccination against measles and rubella, which runs until 30 & # 39; November, the Ministry of Health urged to attend 12 percent of children between 13 months and 4 years yet to receive it.
S & # 39; now, 88% of the target population has been vaccinated, according to the director of Epidemiology, Ana Bertone. This vaccine is a b & # 39; and nothing will be mandatory for the next record for kindergartens.
The campaign started at the national level 1 & # 39; extends until October 30 & # 39; November, which tilqgħet children from 13 months to 4 years including, throughout the province "b & # 39; & # 39 additional dose, triple viral vaccine, which is free".
Bertone pointed out that the population will be vaccinated imply something & # 39; over 20 thousand boys and girls of the province, of which three thousand are still missing, "to achieve the goal". Differentiated in & # 39 groups age, he indicated that absent "especially the younger".
The official also commented that different strategies are drawn up because "we know that the final range is the most difficult, the population is not normally tattendix to vaccination". And clarified that this campaign & # 39; vaccination against measles and rubella is a strategy & # 39; Public health is a priority of the provincial government and is mandatory.
F & # 39; this regard, he remarked that "this is a documentation that will be required for children's enrollment in the next school year of kindergarten." In addition, he said being processed at national level to Anse requires the same documentation procedures corresponding to the family, "trying to make a way to make an effective vaccine".
All this is true, according to Bertone, "because we are talking about diseases that only avoided b & # 39; vaccines, the m & # 39; have a specific treatment and are causes & # 39; morbidity and mortality in children under the age of & # 39; 5 years, f & # 39; immunocompromised persons and also rubella is with congenital syndrome rubella related to bring malformations unborn children. it & # 39; it added, without doubt these measures prevention are prioritized.
To reinforce this strategy, the official example for Venezuela, which stopped the vaccination before the crisis, "and already has more than 5,000 event & # 39; measles, b & # 39; more than 70 deaths, this is a sign that if vaccination, these types of & # 39; re-emerging diseases. "
On the other hand, argued that "vaccines are a victim of its success; When you have high coverage, people forget about the risk of & # 39; disease, but not just because they are jivvjagnaw, while the stop doing this, the disease again & # 39; back. "and in & # 39; that the same effect occurs with tetanus, with & # 39; pertussis, with diphtheria, measles and rubella," implies a return ", he said.
Specifically with regard to & # 39; La Pampa, said: "we had suspicions that excluded." In Argentina there are 14 cases, in Buenos Aires, under control. "But," he enlightenment, "we have a permanent risk, along with & # 39; it is a group & # 39; susceptible people, which means children are not vaccinated, along with & # 39; 10% are, but do not respond to the vaccine, therefore prone to disease group, together with a full epidemiological situation of the world. "
Finally to emphasize this last stage of vaccination, the Epidemiology director again & # 39; reiterated that health teams are prioritizing this campaign, "schedules & # 39; vaccines and expanded in & # 39; different places leaving their homes to find those who are missing ".
He this notice through the media for people who have not yet reached to vaccinate "to make it to the nearest Health Center, in the Province because this campaign is conducted free of charge".
