The two and four years have 95.38% and 95.43% coverage, respectively. The children between one and three years are covered at 88.3% and 92.15%, respectively.

When there are more than 100% coverage means that all children were vaccinated in the territory, including the cities or neighboring states, explained sandalwood Oliveira, Immunization Program Manager of SES.

As for municipalities, 57 of 75 have reached or exceeded the goal of the Ministry. The number is that 76% of municipalities in Sergipe vaccinate 95% of children between six months and under five years of age.
