Semus calls for priority groups to vaccinate against influenza

With the low adherence of the target audience to the influenza immunization campaign, the Municipal Health Department (Semus) calls on priority groups to receive this year’s dose. The vaccine is available at Family Health Units (USFs) from Monday to Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm. The intensification is a recommendation from the Ministry of Health (MS) throughout the Northern Region of the country and continues until December 15th. The available units can be checked below.

Priority groups include children from six months to under six years of age (that is, up to 5 years, 11 months and 29 days), the elderly, pregnant women and women who have recently given birth up to 45 days postpartum, health workers, teachers, indigenous peoples (village residents and non-village residents), security and rescue forces professionals, armed forces, people with permanent disabilities, people with comorbidities, truck drivers, public road transport workers (urban and long distance), port workers, population deprived of liberty and prison system employees.

Semus emphasizes that the influenza vaccine must be taken every year and the main participation in the campaign must be from priority groups, with a greater chance of complications due to the disease. Immunization is the best form of protection to guarantee the safety of the population and prevent transmission of the virus.

About the disease
According to the
MS, influenza is an acute infection of the respiratory system caused by the influenza virus, with high transmission potential. There are four types of influenza/flu viruses: ‘A’, ‘B’, ‘C’ and ‘D’. Influenza ‘A’ and ‘B’ viruses are responsible for seasonal epidemics, with influenza ‘A’ being the cause of major pandemics.
