In Kostanay, clinics have already compiled a list of those who did not manage to instill measles during the last immunization campaign. Those are 9,000 children from 15 to 19 years throughout the region who are in so-called risk groups. Vaccination teams have been formed and starting this October the doctors themselves will travel to first-aid posts in schools and universities.
"We have created 15 vaccination teams that will work simultaneously. Of course, there will be a schedule. In order to meet all sanitary standards one team will instill no more than 60 children a day", - says Gulnara Bekbosynova, deputy chief physician of the regional “Сlinic №1” in Kostanay.
From the beginning of the year, the incidence of measles has increased 10 times. More than 2000 cases throughout the country have been registered. However, it is hard to say whether this disappointing statistics will push people to get the vaccine. The first stage of the vaccination campaign was not the most successful. It started on the 16th of February and three days later the program had to be abandoned because 264 teenagers were hospitalized with headaches and seizures.
About 200 million tenge was spent to purchase Indian vaccines that were successfully used in Europe for many years. Last year 240 million people from 45 countries were vaccinated. In turn, 400 000 adolescents aged from 15 to 19 years will become subjects of the second wave of immunization campaign in Kazakhstan.
"The date of October 1 was not chosen by chance. Immunization of 2014 was suspended in February until May, when graduates of schools began active preparation for UNT. Then, many teenagers are called to military service while the summer is a vacation time for many children and parents, "- says Zhandarbek Bekshin, Chief State Sanitary Doctor of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
At the end of the interview, Zhandarbek Bekshin noted that the vaccine was tested further at the National Center for Drug Expertise in Almaty. Studies have shown that the side effects were caused by psycho-emotional state which is typical for teenagers at these age range.
