The three states will receive 7.7 million doses, with 2.8 million for PR

Rio Grande do Sul, Paraná and Santa Catarina have more doses of flu vaccine to serve the population. The news that the claim of the three southern states was answered was given at a meeting of the Ministry of Health with the state secretaries.

In 2012, the Campaign for Paraná received 1.9 million doses, 1.5 million Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul 1.9 million. In total, the three states will now receive 7.7 million doses, with 3.1 million to the RS, for PR 2.8 million and 1.8 million to SC. The Rio Grande do Sul receive more doses because it has more elderly and chronic patients enrolled in their services.

According to the superintendent of Health Surveillance of Paraná, Sezifredo Peace, this increase in the number of doses to vaccinate enable other groups, in addition to the traditional annual campaigns (children up to 2 years, indigenous health workers, pregnant women and the elderly). The ministry will define what will be, but said that they should be among those with certain chronic diseases and postpartum women, he said.

Another claim was served to advance the campaign for at least 20 days, beginning on April 15. In 2012, the Campaign began on May 5.

According to the Secretary of Health of Paraná, Michele Caputo Neto, the Ministry of Health has accepted the technical arguments that the South is more vulnerable to acute respiratory diseases such as influenza. "We have higher rates of hospitalization and mortality rates higher than those of flu than any other region of Brazil."
