The Municipal Health Department (SMS) of Curitiba released the schedule of vaccination against influenza and the second booster (fourth dose) anticovid for next week. The application of the two vaccines takes place simultaneously.

On Monday (11) people born up to 1944 will be able to receive the vaccines; on Tuesday (12), those born until 1945; and on Wednesday (13), until 1946. These years reach the range of people who have already turned or are 76 years old still in 2022.

In addition to fitting into the age group summoned, it is also necessary to have reached the minimum interval of 120 days since the application of the third dose (first booster) of the anti-covid vaccine. The Saúde Já Curitiba application is sending messages, as a reminder, to everyone who fits the criteria of the call.

Simultaneous vaccination is carried out at 30 fixed points that can be consulted on the Imuniza Já website. The service is from 8 am to 5 pm. To be vaccinated, you must be a resident of Curitiba and present an identification document with photo and CPF.

60 years and over

The State Department of Health issued a technical document recommending the release of the second booster (fourth dose) for all elderly people aged 60 years or older who reach a minimum interval of 120 days between this and the previous dose.

The SMS follows the guidance and calls this public in a staggered way, according to the availability of immunizing agents and the minimum interval elapsed since the application of the first booster (third dose). The strategy will continue with simultaneous vaccination against influenza and a fourth dose of anti-covid for this public.

“We want to optimize vaccination. With a trip to the post, the elderly person will receive both vaccines, being doubly protected. In addition, the staggered call makes it possible to plan the service for everyone, avoiding overload on some days and idleness on others”, said the management superintendent of the Municipal Health Department, Flávia Quadros.

“For this reason, we advise the population to pay attention to the schedules that we publish, as well as the messages received by the Saúde Já Curitiba App. Anyone who meets the criteria will receive a reminder through this tool”, says Flávia.

no contraindication

According to guidance from the Ministry of Health, for adults there is no contraindication to apply the two immunizers on the same day.

More recent scientific studies point to a reduction in the effectiveness of the anti-covid vaccine in elderly people after a time interval of application.

“This drop in the response to the vaccine may be associated with the natural aging of the immune system, the so-called immunosenescence, so it is very important that our elderly receive a new dose”, explained the director of the SMS epidemiology center, Alcides Oliveira.

Schedule:

Monday (11/4) – born until 1944, with third dose (first booster) anti-covid carried out until 12/12/2021.
Tuesday (12/4) – born until 1945, with third dose (first booster) anti-covid carried out until 12/13/2021.
Wednesday (13/4) – born until 1946, with third dose (first booster) anti-covid carried out until 12/14/2021.
