Health of São Gonçalo calls on residents to update vaccination records

While vaccination against the coronavirus reached 75% of the population as of this week, the application of all other routine vaccines is underwhelming. The coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the importance of vaccination to prevent the disease and other immunizers have the same role. Immunization gained a day on the calendar to remember how important the act of vaccinating is and keeping the vaccination book up to date: the next June 9th.

The main purpose of the date is to raise awareness of the importance of vaccination of children and adults. In São Gonçalo, the vaccination coverage of 17 vaccines offered in the municipal health network through the Municipal Health and Civil Defense Department fell during the coronavirus pandemic. In 2019, before the covid-19 pandemic, most vaccine coverage was more than 90% – which is the Ministry of Health’s goal for all vaccines.

In 2020 – the critical year of the beginning of the pandemic – the highest vaccination coverage was that of BCG, which prevents tuberculosis, with 54.4%. All others had lower indices. In 2021, coverage rates were similar to 2020, reaching 43.75% with hepatitis B vaccination in children up to 30 days old.

“Vaccination is essential for those who take it and for public health. Keeping vaccination up to date is the best way to prevent diseases and their proliferation in the environment in which you live. Therefore, all vaccines are important and we need to get back to the 2019 vaccination rates”, said Health immunization coordinator Thayná Fratane.

Even with many diseases eradicated over the years, there is still the circulation of viruses and bacteria, resulting in contamination, even if with few cases. All vaccines are available at 72 health units, which are operating normally in the city, from 8 am to 5 pm, always from Monday to Friday. Updating the immunization book can be done in any vaccination room.

“During the pandemic, a lot of false news about vaccines emerged. Many people stopped vaccinating and vaccinating their children because of doubts. However, we can say that all vaccines are safe and guarantee the health of the population. Therefore, the importance of immunization, even if delayed, after the date, you can look for health posts”, concluded Thayná.

It is important that the population take the booklet, which will be evaluated and updated according to each situation. Updating the booklet is important to reduce the risk of reintroduction of several diseases that have already been eradicated in the country, update the vaccination status, increase vaccination coverage, reduce the incidence of vaccine-preventable diseases and contribute to the control, elimination and/or eradication of diseases, both for the individual and for collective health.

Difference between vaccination and immunization

Vaccination is different from immunization when the vaccine requires more than one dose. Therefore, to be vaccinated is to receive a dose of the vaccine and to be immunized is when the number of doses indicated of the vaccine has expired. Therefore, when the vaccine is a single dose, the first dose already immunizes. When the vaccine requires the application of two or more doses, immunization only takes place when all doses are applied to the individual within the prescribed period. Immunization is the development of immunity to the disease for which the person was vaccinated. It means that the person has produced antibodies against the disease.
