This Monday (2) begins the second phase of a nationwide flu vaccination campaign to prevent flu and MMR against measles. Vaccines, available from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., will be expanded to new priority groups. At that time, the fourth dose also applies to people over 80 years of age.

The trivalent influenza vaccine, offered free of charge by the Unified Health System (SUS) this year, is effective against strains H1N1, H3N2 and type B. According to Rodrigo Carneiro, director of primary health care, annual vaccination prevents serious forms of the disease. “The goal of the vaccine is to reduce the complications, hospitalizations and deaths caused by influenza virus infections in the vaccinated target population. That’s why it’s very important to apply to the clinic and get the vaccine, ”said the infectious disease doctor.
