Public Health Center recommends not admitting unvaccinated children to educational process

In connection with the risk of infection with measles in Chisinau and throughout the country, the Public Health Center recommends not to admit unvaccinated children to the educational process. The Constitutional Court and the European Court of Human Rights explained that, if vaccination is mandatory, the people who do not want to be vaccinated must opt for alternative methods of education, deputy head of the General Medical and Social Assistance Division of Chisinau Vladimir Bolocan stated at Monday’s meeting of officials of municipal services, being quoted by IPN.

According to him, only dangerous allergic reactions are absolute contraindications to vaccination, but these happen very rarely. At the Mother and Child Center, there is a specially created center that analyzes cases of temporary contraindications to vaccination. When temporary contraindications no longer exist, the child can be vaccinated.

The deputy head of the General Medical and Social Assistance Division noted that the vaccines are safe and they have been used for many years. “I urge everyone to get vaccinated and all opinion leaders to subscribe to our message to promote vaccination, especially because the Immunization Awareness Week is approaching - a week during which we intensively and explicitly for everyone will bring correct and clear messages about vaccination, about the vaccine and about everything that revolves around the vaccine,” said Vladimir Bolocan.

A number of 37 measles cases have been reported in Moldova so far this year. Most of the cases of illness were confirmed in Chisinau. The National Public Health Agency warns that specific treatment against measles doesn’t exist, but the disease can be prevented by vaccination. Vaccination is free of charge at the ages of 12 months, 6-7 years and 15-16 years. If children have not been vaccinated at the appropriate ages, the family doctor will propose an individual vaccination schedule.
