Today (30) Day for Measles and Influenza in Guarapou – Correio do Cidadão

This Saturday (April 30, 2022) City of Guarapuava is celebrating Day D of the National Influenza and Measles Vaccination Campaign. In Guarapuava, 23 primary health units (UBS) and Cisgap are open only from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. to serve the population.

“D-Day is an opportunity for just that and it is very important that the population visits the vaccination sites. It is worth mentioning that it is important for children to take both vaccines: against measles and also against the flu. It is imperative that everyone is aware of this and takes advantage of this opportunity, ”emphasizes Chayane Andrade, the city’s director of health care.

According to the Ministry of Health, the campaigns will be implemented in stages. The first vaccines people over the age of 60, health professionals and children, against the flu. Already vaccinated against measles are also used by healthcare professionals, babies and children from 6 months to 5 years.

For Raquel Pedroso, a resident of Morro Alto’s neighborhood who went to get the vaccine in the morning, Day D is very important, especially for those who can’t visit the vaccination sites during the week. “The vaccine brings us quality of life and more security for the entire population. We have to take the vaccine because it is our defense, ”Raquel stressed.

The measles vaccine is part of routine immunization and its vaccination schedule includes a single dose of MMR (against measles, mumps and rubella).

Influenza vaccination, on the other hand, protects against the H1N1, B and H3N2 viruses. It should be noted that the campaign will continue on other days as well.
