Release of 34th National Vaccination Campaign against Polio. The campaign takes place 8-21 June in all states and the Federal District
Alexandre Padilha, Minister of Health, examines campaign material

The National Vaccination Campaign against Polio begins on Saturday (8) with the goal of vaccinating 12.2 million children aged 6 months to under 5 years at an oral dose corresponding to 95% of the target audience. The campaign will end on June 21.

Next Saturday (8), D-Day National Mobilization, about 115 000 health clinics and vaccination sites will be traveling around the country running.

This year, the target audience of the campaign of the oral vaccine are children from 6 months. This is because younger children are now being vaccinated with the injectable dose - introduced into the routine immunization schedule in the second half of 2012. With the change, Brazil is preparing to use only the injectable version when there is the eradication of the disease in the world.

About 350 000 people will be involved in the campaign and will be used 42 000 vehicles, including land, sea and inland to reach all parts of the country. The posts will receive a total of 19.4 million doses of the oral vaccine. The investment ministry reaches R $ 32.3 million in transfer of National Health Fund to states and municipalities, with U.S. $ 13.7 million for the purchase of vaccines.

The last case of polio, also known as infantile paralysis, was recorded in Brazil in 1989. The country received the World Health Organization (WHO) certified the eradication of the disease in 1994.
