The State Department of Health guides all municipalities to promote strategies of selective intensification of vaccination, with priority in the affected cities, and expanded regionally.
So far, vaccination coverage in Paraná is 71.28%, while the recommended goal is 95%. The percentage calculation takes into account only children under one year of age who received the vaccine from January to October of this year.
