Julio Galarza, a biochemist who heads program area 14, mentioned the work being done by the province’s public health department on a yellow fever vaccination campaign because monkeys have been killed by the disease in Brazil.
Yellow fever is a mosquito-borne viral disease that can cause severe symptoms and, in severe cases, death. It is caused by the yellow fever virus, which is found in tropical and subtropical regions of Africa and South America.
Galarza, a biochemist, commented to Canal 9 Norte Misionero: “The activity in the El Dorado area is going well, we are sending out dose reports in different CAPS every day, other promoters are also working hard in the field, so they are also addressing The issue of calendar vaccines was resolved.
He also said, “There are a lot of anti-yellow fever activities in our province. Adults get a dose and children get a booster shot, but because it is done according to the vaccination schedule, it is relatively controlled, but there have been a lot of such things recently. “People from other provinces don’t have vaccines, so they must come to get vaccinated, and don’t have to wait until they have to go on vacation,” the person in charge of the 14th project area suggested.
As a good public health worker, Julio Galarza recommends that all adults have a vaccination card and get vaccinated against hepatitis B, as it greatly reduces the risk of liver disease.
