Sergipe's Campaign Against Coronavirus is in full swing. Here are some figures released by the official website of the Secretary of State for Health: by the end of the first week of January 2022, a total of 3,830,296 doses were applied (the number adds up to the first, second and single dose) for all municipalities. There were 1,750,756 units of the first dose and 1,526,889 of the second.
Also according to the website, 40,125 single doses and 228,763 booster doses were still applied. The page also brings complementary data in the form of reports such as doses distributed by municipality and broken down by manufacturer, in addition to vaccination coverage of priority groups. Even the indigenous population was highlighted: according to the data, the xocós, inhabitants of Caiçara Indigenous lands in the municipality of Porto da Folha, Ilha de São Pedro, have all 260 members with the first and second doses administered.
The best place to keep up to date on city hall actions is at Aracaju Transparency website. Through a joint action with the Aracaju de Notícias Agency, it is known about the actions carried out by the City Hall and other partner companies.
According to the page, only in the first week of the year, between January 3rd and 7th, the City Hall, through the Municipal Health Department (SMS), immunized 17,269 people. And it continues to advance with the vaccination campaign for Aracajuans.
“To date, 92.7% of the general population over the age of 12 is vaccinated with the first dose, which is equivalent to 521,558 people. With the two doses, that's 84,67% or 476,376 individuals.
People like the retired Josefa Silva Alves Barros praise the service provided by the Basic Health Unit (UBS) Max de Carvalho and talk about the importance of the immunizer. For Josefa, “The vaccine is very important. After all, we are going through a pandemic and we got here thanks to it. Excellent organization, I have nothing to complain about. I had my three shots here and the service was perfect.”
For retired teacher Maria de Fátima Costa Silva, the feeling of freedom she felt after being immunized is very important. “For me it was everything, because it freed things up. The person is no longer held back, more confined and afraid to leave,” he says.
Publicist Tiago Andrade Matos said: “We are going through a very difficult situation in the world and in the country, so everyone has to take the vaccine, 2nd and 3rd dose, so that we can get through this as soon as possible”.
Other testimonies attest to how much the population is concerned about vaccination and its dissemination. Student Ana Beatriz Gouveia, 12, is already aware of the importance of immunizing for the general population. “It is very good because I will be able to leave the house and also protect myself better”.
For the Psychology course intern, Daniela Carvalho Silva Santos Rebouças, it is important to think collectively. “I think it's important for us to think about ourselves and others. When we get vaccinated, we are thinking in general, about not transmitting it to anyone. I have a lot of elderly people in my family, so in addition to protecting myself, I think about protecting them, mainly”.
The following information was made available by the City Hall and was taken directly from the official page. The schedule continues to make the first dose of vaccine available to the entire population over 12 years of age: adolescents aged between 12 and 17 years and people over 18 years of age, including pregnant, postpartum and lactating women, in all Basic Health Units, from Monday to Friday, from 8 am to 4 pm. Especially at the Augusto Franco (Farolândia), Onésimo Pinto (Jardim Centenário), Marx de Carvalho (Ponto Novo) and Francisco Fonseca (18 do Forte) units, the operation continues until 6 pm.
For the second dose, those who took the first dose of Pfizer more than 21 days ago and those who took the first dose of Astrazeneca and Coronavac and the day of the second dose arrived, according to the scheduled date marked on the vaccination card. The locations and times remain the same for those who will receive the first dose.
The third dose is available to the general population, healthcare professionals and those over 60 years old, who took the second dose of Pfizer, Astrazeneca or Coronavac four months ago. In the case of immunocompromised patients, the period shortens. They can receive the third immunization against covid-19 from 28 days after the second dose.
Those who took the Janssen vaccine until July 7th should also receive the booster at the following locations: UBS Manoel de Souza (Sol Nascente), Celso Daniel (Santa Maria), Ávila Nabuco (Conj. Médici), Fernando Sampaio (Castelo Branco), Dona Jovem (Industrial), Eunice Barbosa (Coqueiral), João Oliveira (Santos Dumont), José Calumby (Jardim Centenario), from 8 am to 4 pm; as well as at UBS Augusto Franco (Farolândia), Onésimo Pinto (Jardim Centenário), Marx de Carvalho (Ponto Novo) and Francisco Fonseca (18 de Forte), from 8 am to 6 pm.
In the case of the second booster dose, people who are immunosuppressed and who received the first booster four months ago can take it. Important: to receive any dose of the immunizer, it is only necessary to present documentation (vaccination card and photo document) at one of the available health facilities.
The tip here is that those interested always access the official pages of the City Hall and inform themselves of the progress of the actions. Even when the pandemic appears to be waning, the reality healthcare professionals face is more true to what is actually happening.
There are, of course, some sectors being targeted for which vaccination will become mandatory. Since December 21, 2021, Mayor Edvaldo Nogueira signed decree nº 6.441/2021, which establishes that municipal public servants must prove that they are vaccinated against Covid-19.
The document thus determines that all servers will be targeted as a segment that must prevent the pandemic and the spread of the virus. The decree determines that each secretariat or municipal agency supervises the fulfillment of the mandatory immunization. If the employee refuses, he must be removed from work and his days will be deducted from his salary.
