Immunized Minas Gerais, to date, 1,153,649 children 0-5 years of age against polio. The total represents 90% of the target audience of the National Vaccination Campaign against Poliomyelitis. Approximately 26,500 professionals in 7280 fixed and mobile stations are committed to Friday (6), when the deadline for the application of doses.

Some mining districts already exceed the target set. The cities of Bonfim, Matthew Helm, Caranaíba, Coronel Murta, Bias Fortes, Cambridge, Painswick, Ant, and Ipaba Meadows, for example, have already reached 100% coverage of the vaccine in less than a month of campaigning.

However, other locations need to mobilize the population to achieve the goal. This is the case of cities that record cover below 70%, as Joaquim Felicio (62.63%), Igaratinga (64.51%), Stream of Bom Jesus (65.54%), Garambeu (67.10%) and Itamarandiba (67.82%). In Brazil, more than 12 million children have already taken the polio drops. The data, partial, are the Information System of the National Immunization Program (SI-PNI).

In August this year, the Ministry of Health has confirmed new campaign for the maintenance of vaccines, following the basic immunization schedule of the child. Children who have never been immunized against polio may take the first dose at two months and the second at four months, with the injectable polio vaccine. The third dose (six months), the reinforcement (15 months) and the remaining patients orally.
