Mexicali – The Ministry of Health and the entire Baja California State Department of Health have medical protocols for meningeal tuberculosis, hepatitis B, polio, measles, rubella, mumps, diphtheria, pertussis, tetanus, pneumococcal and rotavirus BCG vaccine.
Campaigns against the HPV virus (HPV) are also being carried out, targeting girls aged 11 to 13 years or in the fifth and sixth grades of primary school and the first year of secondary school.
This is reported by Baja California State Health Secretary Adrian Medina Amarillas.
The official recalled that the vaccine is a protective shield for the people.
He said vaccines are the most effective tool in preventing diseases in girls, boys, adolescents and adults, which is why the universal vaccination program is permanent and available free of charge in health centres, hospitals and clinics across the sector.
Different vaccines are administered throughout the year, with intensive vaccination campaigns scheduled for age groups requiring priority attention.
“We have supplies in all cities, so we invite all families to ensure that their daughters and sons receive these vaccines and complete the basic schedule, they just need to go to the nearest health department and request it,” he stressed.
He concluded that through the universal vaccination program, Baja California had administered 388,406 doses of vaccine to newborns, children, adolescents and pregnant women as of August.
