Vaccination against measles and rubella last week by November 30th calls for the participation of 12% of children aged 13 months to 4 years from the Ministry of Health.
According to the Director of Epidemiology, Ana Burtonon, today 88% of the target population is vaccinated. This vaccine is free and is obligatory for the next kindergarten registration.
The event started at the republican level on October 1 and will last until November 30 and will allow children from 13 months to 4 years to vaccinate. The additional dose of three viral vaccines is free of charge in the region.
According to Burton, these vaccine populations include more than 20,000 children from the province, including up to 3,000 for "achieving goals." Differences in age groups have shown that they are not "particularly small".
The official representative also explained that they are developing different strategies because "we consider the last toughest that is usually a non-vaccine population." He explained that vaccination against measles and rubella is a public health strategy, which is a mandatory and mandatory provincial government.
In this regard, he noted that "this is the documentation required for the admission of children to the next kindergarten". He also said that he was processing at the national level, so Anses asked for documents similar to the procedures that are appropriate to his family and "try to find ways to make the vaccine effective."
All this, according to Burton, "because we are talking about congenital rubella syndrome, which causes flaws in immunocompetent and rubella-related children, since we are referring to diseases that only cause vaccines, which are causes of morbidity and mortality in children under 5 years of age. According to him, these preventive measures have priority.
In order to reinforce this strategy, the official cited an example of Venezuela, which has ceased vaccination in a crisis situation, and has over 70 deaths in excess of 5,000 deaths. vaccination, these types of diseases will be re-established. «
On the other hand, he says, "vaccines are victims of its success; At a very high level, people forget about the dangers of the disease, but not only because they do the vaccine, but also when you stop them, these illnesses come back. "In the same sense, tire, pulsus, diphtheria, measles, and rubella," reverses, "he said.
Especially about La Pampa: "We did not have any suspicion," he said. In Argentina, 14 cases are controlled in Buenos Aires. "But," he explained, "we have a constant risk of having a group of sensitive people and this is for children who are not vaccinated, but also 10%, but do not respond to the vaccine. disease-prone and epidemiological situation all over the world. «
Secondly, the epidemiology director reaffirmed that the group of patients would focus on this campaign to pay attention to this last stage: "Vaccination schedules have been expanded and, in many places, evacuated to find missing people."
Add this warning to people who have not yet come to the vaccine to make it at the nearest rehabilitation center because it is free of charge throughout the province. " .
They understand the day of COPD
The event, organized by the Ministry of Healthcare and the Lucy Molass Hospital, will be held today, from 9 to 12 March, on San Martino Square, on chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Spirometers (lung measurements) are currently being implemented for those who wish.
The report was made by the Associated Director of Lucio Molas Hospital Laura Vigliotte and Pneumonologist Lujan Rolando.
Vigliotta reviewed the goals and scope of the initiative. "This pathology affects people aged over 40 years from 14 to 15% of Argentina's population, which is one of the most common chronic diseases in the world. Due to the quality of life of patients, as well as the pathologies that cause disease, we will be clarifying and detecting screening (COPD) on that day, "he said. At a professional press conference.
Additionally, Roland points to the characteristics of people who are capable of receiving preventive measurements: "People over 40, who smoke or smoke in life. All these patients should have spirometric studies. At the morning session (today), we will be able to reach the research, even though it is easy to do in the hospital. "
In this sense, he can "do it primarily by simple measuring device, for six seconds, with strong and fast retrieval, and reach lung capacity. If the patient is unable to reach the standard airflow value, he will be withdrawn from the spirometry. "
Pulmonologist: "In 90% of patients have cigarettes, but other values are heating up in the kitchen or in the tree. Patients suffering from this pathology find it easier to move them and make less effort. "
