Saturday has influenza immunization for priority groups and against Covid-19

On Saturday, May 28, the Municipal Health Department performs the vaccination against influenza and Covid-19 again. Influenza immunization is for seniors aged 60 and over and healthcare professionals. Free-demand immunization against Covid-19 will also be carried out for adults and children.

The vaccination schedule will be from 8 am to 3 pm in six health units: Ypê Pinheiro, Zaniboni I, North Zone, South Zone, Rosa Cruz and Martinho Prado. Already in the posts of Guaçuano, Chaparral, Santa Cecília, Hermínio Bueno and Chácaras Alvorada, immunization will be from 8 am to 12 pm.

On this day, the Epidemiological Surveillance (EV) will be carrying out immunization against influenza exclusively for people who belong to the priority groups of the elderly (from 60 years old), with comorbidities, drivers, teachers and health professionals, the armed forces and of the rescue forces. This action will be in the parking lot of the Big Bom supermarket, in the Center, from 8 am to 12 pm.

The flu vaccine is trivalent and protects against three strains of the influenza virus: influenza A H1N1, influenza A H3N2 and influenza B. To be vaccinated, seniors must present a photo ID, CPF and proof of address.

People in this age group who are bedridden will also be immunized. For this, family members or guardians should look for the health unit closest to their residence to inform full name, age and address for scheduling the application of vaccines.

People with comorbidities must present a photo document, vaccination card and present a medical certificate proving the disease. Drivers, teachers and health professionals, from the armed forces and rescue forces must appear with a photo document and the history of the vaccination card.

The 1st dose is intended for anyone over 12 years of age and the 2nd dose for those who are overdue for their supplement.
