I had to share this. Even though psychiatry is not part of my medical talents, I must confess I find all things mental very fascinating.



Update on H1N1 vaccination in Brazil


The Brazilian National Vaccination Campaign against Influenza H1N1 has ended officially on June the 2nd.


On June the 3rd the government published an official note saying the vaccination campaign has been prorogued indefinitely, until the number of people immunized reaches the initial target (that is, 80% of the population at higher risk of disease).


In Brazil, vaccination against Influenza H1N1 is administered for free by the government to all the population at high risk of disease. We have enough vaccines, so in case you haven’t had yours yet, please go to the public health care facility next to you as soon as possible, and get your H1N1 shot.


There are many people declining the vaccine claiming they don’t have enough time/have to work/etc.

 My advice: don’t be silly!! In case  people had to pay for the vaccine, or if there wasn’t enough of it, I’m sure eveyone would complain and would blame the government for being ill. But now the vaccine is for free, and there’s enough for everyone: means that, if you get ill, and by any chance Brazil’s morbidity and mortality for H1N1 this year gets higher, the only one to blame is yourself! Now go get your shot! I already got mine!
