Goal is to reach 95% of children between 6 months and 5 years, which totals 12.2 million children

B ALANCE part of the Ministry of Health, Monday (10) shows that 6 million children across the country were vaccinated against polio in the first weekend of the campaign. The index means 47% of the 12.9 million children aged 6 months to under 5 years that exist in Brazil have participated in the mobilization. The goal is to reach 95% of this age group, which totals 12.2 million children.

The Ministry of Health held last Saturday (8) D-Day Mobilization, when 115,000 jobs were permanent and mobile open. The action marked the beginning of this year's campaign, which lasts until June 21. The states with the highest vaccination coverage so far were: São Paulo (62.29%), Rio Grande do Sul (62.20%), Paraná (57.78%), Rondônia (53.10%) and Goiás (52.60%). Best Performance by Subgroup old yet was among children aged 6 months to under 1 year old, reaching 51.40% of the target, which represents 749,528 doses.

This year, the National Vaccination Campaign against Polio will be held in only one step. Last year, all children up to 5 years of age participated. Already this year, the campaign's target audience is children from 6 months to take the oral vaccine (OPV), drops calls. That's because under 6 months are now being vaccinated with the injectable vaccine (IPV) in the posts.

To repeat the success of previous campaigns, it is necessary that parents and guardians take the kids to put in the booklet of vaccination of children. Thus, the health professional can assess the vaccination status of the child, considering the sequential scheme.
