This campaign seeks to highlight the importance of vaccination especially among populations hard to reach, the very poor, rural, border and minority populations.
Reinforcing this idea on April 15 took place the bi-national meeting of Ministers of Health of Peru.  In the district of Aguas Verdes, Alberto Tejada and the Minister of Health of Ecuador Carina Vance,  organized the launch of Vaccination Week in the Americas, which aims to complete the vaccination series in children under 5 years, to vaccinate children under 24 months, health workers, people at risk and adults over 60 for seasonal flu.   Peru  |  Ecuador
