The Secretary of Health of São Paulo held on Saturday (20), the D-Day of the vaccination campaign against influenza. From 8am, about 7 thousand vaccination between fixed and mobile, as well as 3000 vehicles, 33 buses and four boats will be available for the population to be vaccinated. Altogether there will be approximately 42,000 health professionals, state and local, involved in the action.

The Secretariat intends to immunize against the flu about 7 million Paulistas until day 26. The number corresponds to the target of 80% of the 8.7 million elderly people aged 60 or over, pregnant women, children aged six months to under two years, indigenous patients diagnosed with chronic diseases and health care professionals in the state.

In addition to immunize the population against influenza A H1N1 type that spread around the world in the 2009 pandemic, the campaign will also protect the population against two other types of influenza viruses: influenza A H3N2 and B. The vaccine does not cause in any way, for those who take the flu shot because it is made of small fragments of the virus that are unable to cause any infection, says Helena Sato, director of the Immunization Registry.
