The D-day of vaccination against influenza (influenza) and measles (triple viral) will be this Saturday, 30, in all health units in the urban and rural areas of Feira de Santana. The doses can be applied simultaneously, as recommended by the Ministry of Health. The application takes place from 7 am to 4 pm – check the list of audiences at the end of the article.

To receive the vaccine, it is necessary to present the identity document, vaccination book and the SUS card. In addition, those who have comorbidities must submit a medical report. In the case of professionals who are part of the priority group, proof of employment relationship is required.

It is worth noting that the measles vaccine will be administered on the day for people aged 5 to 59 years, even if they have been vaccinated recently.

“Due to the pandemic, many people stopped taking important vaccines and that’s why we are giving greater emphasis to this campaign, so that vaccine coverage is expanded”, explains the coordinator of Epidemiological Surveillance, Carlita Correia.

The following can be vaccinated against the flu: Elderly (+ 60 years); Health Workers; Children (6 months to 5 years); pregnant women; Puerperal women (up to 45 days postpartum); Indian people; teachers; People with Comorbidities; Public transport workers; Professionals from the Armed Forces, Security and Rescue Forces; Employees of the Deprivation of Liberty System; Population deprived of liberty adolescents and young people in socio-educational measures.
