The vaccination day against influenza and other vaccines of the National Vaccination Scheme organized by the Metropolitan Health Region in Juan Díaz and Don Bosco was held this Saturday with great success, with the purpose of reinforcing the population against circulating respiratory viruses. At this time of year.
The nursing staff of the Metropolitan Health Region began the vaccination day very early at fixed points in Juan Díaz, Don Bosco and other points in the capital, where vaccination was also carried out outside the walls, house to house in several corregimientos.
Andrea Gil, a nurse from the Metropolitan region, stated that the attendance of people at vaccination points has been successful, as has vaccination outside the walls, since the Ministry of Health has all the vaccines to inoculate the entire population.
“For this day of vaccinating we have 10 teams deployed in these sectors, if for some reason someone could not be vaccinated, they can go to the health centers from Monday to Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.,” said Gil .
Given the high turnout, it was reported that the Expanded Immunization Program (PAI) supplied vaccines at the points where the largest number of people were verified, in order to cover the demand, while remembering that it is important that they go to the vaccination points during the week.
The Ministry of Health and the Social Security Fund (CSS) have the vaccine against influenza and other vaccines from the National Vaccination Scheme, so that they can assist Health centers, sub-centers and police centers throughout the country to get vaccinated from 7 in the morning, since vaccines save lives and are free.
The Minsa’s call is to maintain the biosecurity measures implemented during the Covid-19 pandemic, such as constant hand washing, the use of a mask in crowded places, caring for children under five years of age, over 60 years of age and chronic patients to avoid contagion.
