On November 8, a woman from Lima came over 38 degrees on a flight to Tim 639. After conducting the necessary tests, the health authorities confirmed it was measles.
To date, Seremi Health has confirmed that 183 contacts of the event have been identified, between foreigners and Chileans. The rest of the people are in the process of contact.
We also noted that after the connection was identified, their vaccine status would be approved and a vaccination would be required for the various health centers, where coordination was established, if necessary.
While it continues in the search for people who have been in contact with one affected, there is another group of Chilean that needs to be alert.
As explained by Sarmi de Salud RM, Rosa Oyaresh, "These are travelers who want to leave the country, born between 1971 and 1981, and who has not yet received a history of two doses of the vaccine afterwards. Months. "
The same measure applies also to children who are traveling and adults over the age of one year, even children under the age of 7 who have only one serving, which should be vaccinated at least two weeks before the trip. Babies over 6 months of age can also be vaccinated on the recommendation of Seri de Salud.
"The important thing is that the vaccine should be given 10 days before it travels for antibodies to be produced, otherwise it will not be protected," said Carlos Perez, an infectious disease specialist at the University of California School of Medicine.
He added that "I need to get the consolidation for free, since it is delivered by the state."
Only the RM Health Care has discovered that "to access a vaccine must participate in any public or private vaccination agreement, which displays any proof of travel, such as a card or other document, accompanied by a medical order when necessary."
(Italy, Malta, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom) recommended places to travel with two Immunization doses (usually the entire population receives them when they reach the age of 1 and in the first basic education system).
In America in 2018, a total of 11 countries have confirmed 8,717 cases so far, while in the last month, 18 EU countries (EU) have outbreaks of measles.
