In Poland, the number of measles infections increases, and the Minister of Health Łukasz Szumowski calls them to leave themselves and their children vaccinated. AP has applied today. In the Mazowieckie Voivodship, where the Warsaw metropolis is located, 17 children have been recently infected with measles.
According to the minister, the measles infected only children who did not allow parents to vaccinate. "That should be a warning for us to be vigilant, let's be wise, let's be wise, let's get vaccinated," said Szumowski, who tried to disprove the fears that vaccines could be dangerous for children.
He also pointed out that one child under the age of 13 months still suffers from a vaccine. The only way to protect such infants from infection is to provide a sufficient population that must be at least 95 percent.
Measles infection is the most dangerous in children under the age of six who can cause measles, causing life-threatening complications.
The World Health Organization (WHO) warned at the end of October that some countries in Europe, including Poland and the Czech Republic, lost confidence in the safety of vaccinations, which leads to an increase in the incidence of certain infectious diseases, including measles.
Measles are highly contagious viral diseases. In the initial stage, the patient develops a fever, runny nose, conjunctivitis and cough. Then there is a rash that is deeply red and small spotted. The rash starts from the head, gradually spreading over the face, neck, abdomen and limbs.
