According to the State Department of Health (Sesa), Espírito Santo alone has 246,651 children and adolescents aged 10 to 14 on the priority list.

Before this new announcement, only the municipalities of Vila Velha, Serra, Cariacica, Vitória, Guarapari, Afonso Cláudio, Viana, Laranja da Terra, Fundão, Itaguaçu, Santa Leopoldina, Domingos Martins, Santa Teresa, Venda Nova do Imigrante, Santa Maria de Jetibá, Ibatiba, Brejetuba, Marechal Floriano, Conceição do Castelo, Itarana, Aracruz, João Neiva and Ibiraçu received doses of the dengue vaccine.

Vaccination, which began only for children aged 10 and 11 in Espírito Santo, at the beginning of March, now applies to children aged 10 to 14. The measure to stagger immunization is due to the shortage of doses in the country.

Immunization only began in people aged 10 to 14, because it is the population that accounts for the highest proportion of hospitalizations due to the disease. The vaccination schedule consists of two doses with an interval of three months between them.

To date, the Ministry of Health has received a shipment of 750,000 doses of the dengue vaccine. And now, at the end of March, it received another 930,000 doses that will be distributed to the 521 municipalities initially selected and to the 154 now covered by the expansion, including the 52 cities in Espírito Santo.
