According to Newspaper Between seven and ten in the morning, the number of vaccinated teenagers reached 27, which is assessed by professionals at the units as good.

Campaign in São Paulo schools

The city of São Paulo started a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of getting vaccinated against dengue for teenagers, in addition to showing how to take care to avoid outbreaks of the disease at home.
