Children are vaccinated against polio during immunization campaign in Sao Paulo

The Ministry of Health of São Paulo promotes from August 18, a Saturday, a campaign to catch up on the vaccination of 2.9 million children under five years old São Paulo. The goal is to give the book and apply the doses late, depending on the age of each child. The campaign will continue until August 24, a Friday.

8h to 17h of August 18, 36 500 health professionals will be distributed in about 4,000 health centers fixed and mobile throughout the State of São Paulo, to confer and update the books of children with booster shots if necessary.

Will be available in all doses compared with 15 types of diseases, like polio, pneumonia, yellow fever, influenza, rotavirus and meningitis. It will also be available for the first time, the pentavalent vaccine, which immunizes against diseases diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, meningitis and hepatitis B.

For the campaign to update the booklet will also be deployed in partnership with the municipalities of the State, 2500 cars, 48 ​​buses, five boats and 15 other types of transport vehicles.

The campaign is aimed primarily at children less than five years that the posts are taken by parents or guardians with a booklet of vaccination of children, an essential document to prove that doses have been applied, which are in arrears and which should be implemented in the months or years.

If parents or guardians have lost the booklet of vaccination of their children, the recommendation is that they attend the same health facility where children previously vaccinated, so you can see the registration form in the files of the unit about which vaccines already were applied or not.

This campaign is vital to protect children against diseases that can be dangerous. We will make a real joint effort to expand coverage in the state and keep eradicated diseases like polio and measles, and to strengthen the control of preventable diseases, says pediatrician Helena Sato, director of the Immunization Registry.
