People up to the age of 29 should be vaccinated against measles

The low demand for immunization, especially against measles, worries the specialists of the Department of Health and Civil Defense of São Gonçalo (CEMSA). Although there have been no confirmed cases in São Gonçalo this year, the city registered only 21.48% of those vaccinated with two doses of the triple-viral vaccine, which protects against measles, mumps and rubella. The vaccination rate that the Ministry of Health wants is 95% of the target audience.

Measles is a highly contagious viral disease that mainly affects children. It can cause serious health problems such as: severe diarrhea, ear infection, vision loss, pneumonia and inflammation of the brain. The only means of prevention is through two doses of trivalent viral vaccine at 12 and 15 months of age in 95% of children. Only above this percentage does the transmission of the virus break.

In addition to children, children over 12 months of age and adults up to 29 years of age who have not established their vaccination status should receive two doses of the vaccine, as should all health professionals, regardless of age. Adults over the age of 30 who do not have evidence of measles vaccination should take an MMR shot.

“Measles reappeared in 2020. In São Gonçalo, we registered 90 notifications and 34 cases were confirmed. In 2021, we received eight notifications, and this year, 15. In these two years, we have not had any confirmed cases, but we are alerting the population to vaccinate Their children, because it is one of the most important immunizations in the child’s immunization schedule. Coverage is very low, said nurse Mariana Costa, from the Epidemiological Disease Surveillance Sector of Simsa.

According to the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), measles remains one of the leading causes of death among young children in the world, despite the availability of a safe and effective vaccine to prevent the disease. In São Gonçalo, the trivalent viral vaccine is available at 53 vaccination points.
