From October to October this year, 5.752 people have been affected by morbidity, 15 of them are brain inflammation and lung failure, which is the worst complication of this disease. TOZoran Radovanovic, a pediatrician, says that although the outbreak of morbidity this winter is not expected to be mass, everyone who needs to be vaccinated should have to!
"Batut": more vaccinated
According to the Institute of Public Health "Dr Milan Jovanovic Batut", in 2017, Serbia & # 39; MMR vaccination coverage was 85.2 percent and re-vaccination was 91.6. In the first six months of 2018, the number of children vaccinated in the second year of life was 52.9 percent. This rate was 18.3 percent more than the same period last year and 34.6 percent.
– The solution to the problem is in the vaccination stage and we should not consider whether the number of patients will be smaller in the period before us, but we should focus on eliminating it. And I can't do it until 95 percent of preschool children are exceeded! The outbreak always moves from them, because the rest of the population is already protected by incomplete immunization, or this disease has already occurred. The area for the development of the epidemic is definitely because some parents still refuse to vaccinate their children. Of course, the scope of immunization is now much larger than the same period of last year, but it is still insufficient to be carefree when it comes to morbiles. However, it is encouraging that the number of vaccinated vaccines is increasing with each passing day and therefore optimism is that this year the number of suffering sufferers will be much lower than last year. – Radovanovic draws attention.
READY TO BE FRIENDLY BOGINJE FRIENDLY! Doctors warn the spread of the epidemic
And the infectious scientist, gelarko Rankovic, says that the number of children vaccinated means that the number of patients will be lower.
– The fact is that more and more parents are vaccinating their children, so we hope that the epidemic will be smaller than last year. We hope that they will not die from this disease as in the last 12 months. – says.
