Immunization begins today in DF; Understand what it will be like

The first shipment of dengue vaccines arrived in the Federal Territory early Thursday (8/2) afternoon. In total, 71,708 doses were delivered – less than half of what was expected at a press conference held by the Federal District Government (GDF), on Wednesday. It was expected that 194,000 doses would arrive, but the local executive authority confirmed that shipments would be sent little by little. With transmission rates declining, the Ministry of Health announced that only children between the ages of 10 and 11 will be among the first to be vaccinated.

But the arrival date of the next batch of vaccines has not yet been determined. Deputy Governor, Celina Liao (PP), and Health Minister, Luceline Florencio, went to Rede de Frio, located in Guara, to receive the doses. “We are now awaiting the guidance of the Ministry of Health to know how to conduct the immunization. With 194,000 doses, it will be enough to vaccinate our entire population between the ages of 10 and 14 years. With a decrease in the number of cases, we are awaiting new guidance from MS,” the deputy governor said. “To see if we can vaccinate the entire population or if we should classify by risk zone.”

The Health Minister added that there were customs problems when the vaccine arrived in Brazil. “The Ministry informed us that there is a problem at customs, but the doses will arrive after they pass inspection. We will administer these 71,000 doses and then we will adjust the internal process, depending on the receipt of the new doses.” Luceline said.

However, the Health Minister confirmed that vaccination against dengue will begin today and will be rolled out at some points across the country's capital. He stressed, “Vaccination begins tomorrow (today). At seven in the morning, the doses will be at the points that the General Secretariat will provide.”

Concomitant diseases

While receiving the doses, Celina Liao spoke about the deaths of Brasilia residents. He added, “It is important to say that out of the 11 deaths, there were nine people with comorbidities. I spoke about this matter yesterday with the (Health) Minister. Maybe we will take all the data from Brazil and re-evaluate who we apply it to.” advertiser. “I don’t know if this materializes in other states, but in DF, those who are dying are those with comorbidities,” the lieutenant governor said. Selina added that Minister Nicia Trindade will take the matter for analysis by the Technical Committee of the Ministry of Health.

Crowded tents

The Federal District Government (GDF) will increase the number of tents to receive residents from nine to 20. Structures designed to treat patients suspected of having dengue will be installed at 11 new addresses.

The new facilities will start operating as of next weekend in Vicente Perez, Varejao, Jama, Taguatinga, Guara, Plano Piloto, Paranoa, Planaltina and Aguas Claras. Cilandia and Samambaya, which already own the structure, will benefit from another reception tent totaling 20 buildings in the defense area.

Yesterday afternoon, Koryo visited the Sealandia tent, where about 250 patients with dengue symptoms are being treated daily, and about seven evacuations to hospitals and UPA areas are being carried out. As an area with the highest case rates, the tent is one of the busiest areas in the DF region. Because the Air Force Field Hospital (HCamp) is located nearby, the health department works to transfer patients so that care is balanced between the two units. At Sealandia, students on the Nursing Technician course are supported by a team of health professionals who provide screening support.

Just yesterday, the Sealandia facility received 10 patients awaiting treatment at HCamp. This is the case of paralegal Thalita Gabriela, 31 years old. He said: “I was waiting for treatment in the field hospital and they offered me a ride so I could come and receive treatment here in the tent. We came in a health department car.” He added: “Since I am on the second day of symptoms, they did not conduct the test. But I am waiting for treatment and moisturizing with serum.”

After trying to get treatment at Taguatinga Regional Hospital, security guard Agdo Avila, 37, was taken to the Cilandia tent with his wife and two children, ages three and six. The eldest son had a birthday the day before, but the family was unable to celebrate because the children were suffering from strong dengue symptoms. He added: “My two children suffer from a fever of up to 39 degrees, headache and nausea, and they vomited several times.”

The situation in private hospitals does not appear to be much different from the situation in the public health network in Germany. Housewife Levonide de Oliveira (52 years old) took her daughter to a private hospital on Wednesday evening, but after waiting more than two hours, she decided to return home. Yesterday, they went to the Sealandia tent to try to help. He said: “It happens faster here. My daughter's condition is getting worse, with high fever, body aches and itchy skin lesions.”

HKAMP

The Air Force has reinforced that care at the field hospital (HCamp), set up next to the first emergency care unit, in Sealandia, is limited to patients with dengue fever or symptoms of the disease. According to the Air Force, between February 5 and yesterday, at 6 p.m., 5,004 consultations were conducted, including medical clinic, pediatric, emergency, laboratory tests, etc.

According to pioneer Juliana Vandestine, the recommendation for people suffering from other diseases is to look for a health center. The soldier explained, in a press conference yesterday, that the majority of patients being treated in the unit are mild cases.

At the time, the major estimated that HCamp was receiving a large number of people daily, but the majority were mild cases of the disease. “We've met the demand and expected an average of 600 (patients) in this case. We've really beaten it and been very surprised by the high demand at this location, and it's not just patients from Sealandia. We've had many patients come from outside here 'looking for HCamp,'” said Pfc. .

In response to a question about expanding the service, the soldier reported that HCamp adapts the service according to need and demand. “This question of expansion is not for us to decide now.”

Regarding on-site care, Juliana Vandestine highlighted that the purpose of the hospital is to exclusively treat dengue cases. “It is important that this is very clear. What has happened is that patients who are not suspected of having dengue are arriving in the country. This puts a burden on care. So, I ask those patients with other symptoms to go to the health centres,” he appealed.

According to the Health Department of DF (SES-DF), the main symptoms of dengue are: malaise, fatigue, high temperature (above 38°C), pain in the body, behind the eyes, head and joints. Other symptoms that may appear are vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, and the appearance of spots on the body. There are also cases without symptoms or with only one of these signs. After being bitten by an infected mosquito, the first symptoms of dengue appear between four and ten days.

“Because it is a mild case, he will be guided and treated at home. Group B and C cases, we welcome him, take care of him and hydrate him. If it is necessary to transfer, we will transfer. If everything is fine and he improves with the group B and C cases, we will give him guidance and he will return to the home”.
