Mayabeque, Cuba: The second stage of the Bivalent Oral Anti-polio Vaccination Campaign will take place in Jaruco, from November 16 to 21 at the Vaccination Center of Noelio Capote Comprehensive Teaching Polyclinic.

According to the Immunization Program Advisor in the territory, Ms. Sibil Misas Vega, the 682 infants under three years of age, who received the first dose in February of this year, will be vaccinated with the second dose.

In addition, this campaign also includes the reactivation of the 9-year-old child population.

It is contraindicated to give the vaccine to minors with fever, vomiting and diarrhea, the specialist said.

As it is an oral immunogenic, infants should not ingest water or food 30 minutes before and 30 minutes after receiving the two drops of the compound, she recalled.  

Due to the importance of protecting children against a disease eradicated in Cuba, since the 1960s, the Ministry of Public Health gave the green light to start the second stage of the 59th National Campaign against Poliomyelitis, which was scheduled from April 27 to May 2 and was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
