“Our focus is on children aged 5 to 11 years, but we take the opportunity to vaccinate adults who are accompanied by completing the vaccine schedule. Therefore, we ask you to take a booklet for professionals to check which vaccine is being applied,” explains Divino Valero Martins, deputy secretary of the DF’s Health Surveillance Division. .
For more than 10 days, the Kovid propagation rate reaches 1.26 at DF
According to the Secretary of Health, General Manoel Pafiadache, about 268,000 children are in the target age group and approximately 170,000 have already been vaccinated.
“So, we need about 100 thousand people to complete the vaccination schedule for this public. This is an effort we are making and I believe our goals will be achieved in partnership with the Department of Education. This is another opportunity for us to vaccinate our children and vaccinate the young and the adult public, and to complete the vaccine schedule for this public, ”says the head of the folder.
Vaccination in DF
In addition to the teaching units, the other three locations offer the Kovid-19 vaccine service in the federal district. Asa Sul’s Basic Health Unit (UBS) 1 provides doses for adults and children, while Ceilandia’s UBS 2. Praça do Paranoá is for adults only. In addition to immunizations against Covid-19, UBS 2 and Escola 38 do P Norte in Selandia also apply immunizations against influenza and measles.
The purpose of vaccination in school environments is to increase the number of children vaccinated between the ages of 5 and 11 years. Traffic vaccinations in schools are always held on Saturdays and started on March 19 at the Estructural Educational Center 1. At the site, 583 doses were applied. Of these, 231 were children between the ages of 5 and 11, according to data from the Health Department.
Centro de Ensino Médio 1 do Guará opened its doors to immunization on March 26. At the time, 1,374 vaccines were administered, 780 of them in children aged 5 to 11 years. Another school is Kaik Santa Paulina, located in Paranoa, where 554 vaccines were administered, of which 313 were children. In turn, 526 vaccines were performed at the Miguel Arcanzo Primary Education Center (CEF) in Sೊo Sebastiೊo, with 354 children and 172 adults.
While the vaccine campaign continues in federal district health posts, DF’s secretary of education, Helvia Paranagua, suggests that a partnership with the health department would give parents another option to immunize their children. “It is an incentive for parents who work throughout the week to take their children to vaccination on Saturdays,” he highlights.
