ABSTRACT

Na atualidade, fotografar ou gravar o instante da imunização contra a Covid-19 se tornou rotina compartilhada nas redes sociais. Essa exposição instigou a observação de uma questão relevante: a técnica de aplicação está correta? Com a veiculação de imagens, é possível visualizar as vacinas sendo administradas em diferentes áreas do músculo deltoide, o que pode acarretar efeitos adversos. A otimização da qualificação técnica e pedagógica dos profissionais que elaboram e ministram as capacitações, bem como o envolvimento efetivo dos vacinadores nos treinamentos para injeção intramuscular é uma necessidade constante para evitar mais danos à saúde da população


Currently, photographing or recording the instant of immunization against Covid-19 has become a shared routine on social networks. This exposition prompted the observation of a relevant question: is the application technique correct? With the transmission of images, it is possible to visualize the vaccines being administered in different areas of the deltoid muscle, which can cause adverse effects. The optimization of the technical and pedagogical qualification of the professionals who design and deliver the training, as well as the effective involvement of vaccinators in training for intramuscular injection, is a constant need to avoid further damage to the health of the population

ABSTRACT

Animal shelters are places with a high risk of exposure to infectious diseases due to the high density, population dynamics of the shelter, and the stress to which dogs and cats are subjected. The immunization process through vaccines is an essential component in the prevention and health and welfare management program for these animals. This review aims to evaluate the guidelines on vaccination of dogs and cats in shelter environments, highlighting points of comparison with the Brazilian reality.(AU)


Os abrigos de animais são locais com um alto risco de exposição às doenças infecciosas devido à alta densidade, à dinâmica populacional do abrigo e ao estresse a que os cães e gatos estão submetidos. O processo de imunização por meio das vacinas é um componente essencial no programa de prevenção e gestão de saúde e bem-estar para esses animais. Esta revisão tem como objetivo revisar as diretrizes sobre a vacinação de cães e gatos em ambientes de abrigos, ressaltando pontos de comparação com a realidade brasileira.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract Vaccination is a procedure considered painful for children; therefore, the healthcare team should provide conditions for adequate pain assessment and control. This study sought to evaluate whether behavioral distraction procedures contribute to reduce pain perception and anxiety indicators in children during vaccination. One hundred and four children between three and 12 years attending a Health Center in the Federal District participated in the study. Children were divided into four groups: baseline, groups with balloons, cards and tablets. Data were obtained by means of sociodemographic questionnaires, the Monica and Friends Pain Scale and the Observational Scale of Distress Behavior. The collected data were measured using the SPSS Statistics program. Results show that the intervention groups had lower averages, concerning pain levels, incidence of competing behaviors and duration of vaccine procedures, compared to baseline.


Resumo A vacina é um procedimento considerado doloroso para crianças, portanto, a equipe de saúde deve fornecer condições para avaliação e controle adequados da dor. O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar se procedimentos de distração comportamental contribuem para a redução da percepção de dor e de indicadores de ansiedade de crianças durante a vacinação. Participaram 104 crianças entre três e 12 anos em um Centro de Saúde do Distrito Federal. As crianças foram divididas em quatro grupos: linha de base, grupos com balões, cartões e tablet. Os dados foram obtidos através de: questionários sociodemográficos, Escala de Dor da Turma da Mônica e Observational Scale of Distress Behavior. Os dados coletados foram medidos por meio do programa SPSS Statistics. Os resultados revelaram que os grupos de intervenção apresentaram médias menores, em termos de níveis de dor, incidência de comportamentos concorrentes e duração dos procedimentos de vacina, em relação à linha de base.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To examine changes in vaccination of children younger than 1 year during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic (March 2020-August 2021) in Haiti, Lesotho, Liberia and Malawi. Methods: We used data from health management information systems on vaccination of children aged 12 months or younger in districts supported by Partners In Health. We used data from January 2016 to February 2020 and a linear model with negative binomial distribution to estimate the expected immunization counts for March 2020-August 2021 with 95% prediction intervals, assuming no pandemic. We compared these expected levels with observed values and estimated the immunization deficits or excesses during the pandemic months. Findings: Baseline vaccination counts varied substantially by country, with Lesotho having the lowest count and Haiti the highest. We observed declines in vaccination administration early in the COVID-19 pandemic in Haiti, Lesotho and Liberia. Continued declines largely corresponded to high rates of COVID-19 infection and discrete stock-outs. By August 2021, vaccination levels had returned to close to or above expected levels in Haiti, Liberia and Lesotho; in Malawi levels remained below expected. Conclusion: Patterns of childhood immunization coverage varied by country over the course of the pandemic, with significantly lower than expected vaccination levels seen in one country during subsequent COVID-19 waves. Governments and health-care stakeholders should monitor vaccine coverage closely and consider interventions, such as community outreach, to avoid or combat the disruptions in childhood vaccination.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: a year after the start of COVID-19 vaccination, coverage remains very low in the African Region. Different challenges and operational barriers have been documented, but countries will need to supplement the available information with operational research in order to adequately respond to practical questions regarding how best to scale up COVID-19 vaccination. We conducted a survey among immunisation program staff working in the African Region, in order to identify the high priority operational research questions relevant to COVID-19 vaccination. Methods: proposed operational research questions categorized into six topic areas were sent to resource persons, asking them to rate according to the relevance, urgency, feasibility, and potential impact of the research questions on the progress of COVID vaccination. Results: a total of 25 research questions have been given an average weighted rating of 75% or more by the respondents. Nine of these top priority research questions were in the area of demand generation, risk communication and community engagement while 8 questions covered the area of service delivery. Conclusion: countries should plan for and coordinate stakeholders to ensure that relevant operational research is done to respond to the top priority research questions, with a view to influence policies and implementation of strategies.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: La pandemia de COVID-19 ha provocado cambios que afectan los sistemas de salud y el abordaje de las enfermedades infecciosas a nivel mundial. La esperanza de recuperar un cierto nivel de "normalidad" se basa en el desarrollo de vacunas. Objetivos: El objetivo de este estudio fue describir las actitudes hacia la vacuna COVID-19 en la población paraguaya, explorando factores que podrían ser abordados para apoyar la campaña de vacunación contra el SARS-CoV-2. Materiales y métodos: Estudio transversal y descriptivo. Los participantes fueron reclutados a través de una encuesta basada en Internet, difundida a través de las redes sociales, durante el mes de marzo de 2021. Todos los participantes recibieron información completa sobre el objetivo del estudio, la privacidad y el procesamiento de datos. Resultados: De los 2297 participantes, el 67,9% (n=1559) eran mujeres, el 49,9% (n=1147) estaban empleados, el 89,1% (n=2046) reportaron educación universitaria y el 96,6% (n=2218) eran de áreas urbanas. En general, el 81,8 % (n=1879) de los participantes afirmó que estarían dispuestos a vacunarse contra el COVID-19 si hubiera una vacuna disponible. Se ha encontrado una relación significativa entre haber solicitado la vacuna antigripal y la intención de vacunarse frente al COVID-19 (p<0,0001), con un OR: 3,09 (IC 95% 2,1-4,5). Conclusión: El porcentaje de participantes inclinados a vacunarse contra el COVID-19 es similar al de aquellos que esperan una inmunización adecuada de la vacuna. Las agencias gubernamentales y de salud deben hacer un esfuerzo para brindar información precisa que responda a las inquietudes de las personas sobre la vacunación, en cualquier nivel de la sociedad.


Introduction: Insufficient physical activity is one of the main public health problems globally. Teen behavior patterns and lifestyle may affect their physical and mental health. Objectives: The objective of this study was to know the patterns of physical activity and sedentary behaviors in the adolescent population nationwide. Materials and methods: A quantitative, observational, descriptive cross-sectional study, the questionnaire of the Global School Health Survey was applied in school adolescents of the eighth and ninth grades of the 3rd cycle of Basic School Education and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd year of Secondary Education in 49 schools and colleges in the country. 1,803 students aged 13 to 15 years were included in this study. Results. 27% of adolescents between the ages of 13 and 15 in Paraguay are active, being significantly higher in men than in women (p-value 0.000) and 22% are inactive more frequently in women than in men (p-value 0.000). It was observed that 33.5% of the adolescents had sedentary behavior, 43.4% of the adolescents did not use active displacement to attend school. Adolescents who did not participate in physical education classes at school accounted for 15.6%. Conclusion: Although 27% of adolescents between the ages of 13 and 15 are active, the large percentage of inactive adolescents with sedentary behavior is worrying.

ABSTRACT

O estudo tem por objetivo analisar as valências simbólicas identificadas em notícias publicadas no Portal G1 de todos os estados brasileiros sobre os primeiros atos de vacinação contra a covid-19, relacionando-os, em particular, às questões de raça e gênero com foco nas mulheres e sua posição na sociedade. Nessa perspectiva busca-se responder, sob a ancoragem da semiótica de Algirdas Julien Greimas, como a mulher foi representada em cada estado. Os resultados retratam as mulheres como sujeito social 'frágil' e 'dependente' do Estado como 'Pai-Provedor' ao lado do uso de mulheres negras representativas de 'minorias' que remetem a uma ideia de um Brasil diverso e miscigenado. As conclusões evidenciam que a visibilidade conferida à mulher nas campanhas de vacinação disputou espaço com representações de caráter sexista e racista.


The study aims to analyze the symbolic valences identified in news published on the G1 Portal from all Brazilian states about the first acts of vaccination against covid-19, relating them to issues of race and gender with a focus on women and their position in society. From this perspective, we seek to answer, under the anchorage of Algirdas Julien Greimas' semiotics, how women were represented in each state. The results portray women as a 'fragile' and 'dependent' social subject, from the State as a 'Father-Provider', alongside the use of black women representing 'minorities' that refer to an idea of a diverse and miscegenated Brazil. The conclusions show that the visibility given to women in vaccination campaigns disputed space with sexist and racist representations.

Desde esta perspectiva, buscamos responder, bajo el anclaje de la semiótica de Algirdas Julien Greimas, cómo estaban representadas las mujeres en cada estado. Los resultados retratan a la mujer como sujeto social 'frágil' y 'dependiente' del Estado como 'Padre-Proveedor' junto con el uso de mujeres negras representativas de 'minorias' que remiten a una idea de un Brasil diverso y mestizo. Las conclusiones muestran que la visibilidad dada a las mujeres en las campañas de vacunación disputaba espacio con representaciones sexistas y racistas.

ABSTRACT

Resumen | La viruela significó para las colonias americanas un proceso que desestabilizaba de forma dramática las dinámicas sociodemográficas de las colonias, lo que incentivó el desarrollo de estudios científicos sobre el virus causante. Cada libro acerca de la viruela en la biblioteca de Nariño constituyó una herramienta en la lucha contra el virus emprendida por el prócer. Tras la revisión del artículo "A propósito del bicentenario de la independencia de Colombia: las prácticas de lectura de Antonio Nariño y el desarrollo de una vacuna presuntamente efectiva contra la viruela" quise comentar y profundizar en torno al saber médico de Nariño mediante el acercamiento a las obras a las que recurrió para instruirse sobre la enfermedad. A partir de la semblanza de cada una de ellas, analicé el proceso de variolización en el Reino de la Nueva Granada y la necesidad de fabricar una vacuna propia.


Abstract | For the American colonies, smallpox implied a process that dramatically destabilized their sociodemographic dynamics, which explains why scientific development took place around the causative virus. Each book about smallpox in Nariño's library was a tool in the fight against smallpox undertaken by the founding father. After reviewing the article "About the bicentennial of the independence of Colombia: The reading practices of Antonio Nariño and the development of a vaccine that is presumably effective against smallpox", I set myself to study Antonio Nariño's medical knowledge further. Through the approach to the works that Nariño used to educate himself on smallpox and the development of a biographical sketch of each of them, I analyzed the process of variolization in the Kingdom of Nueva Granada and the need to manufacture a vaccine locally.

ABSTRACT

Objetivos: Conhecer a percepção de enfermeiros da Atenção Primária em Saúde a respeito dos conhecimentos dos usuários sobre imunização; Identificar as práticas desses enfermeiros sobre imunização; Construir, de forma compartilhada, uma tecnologia educacional sobre imunização. Método: Pesquisa metodológica qualitativa, realizada em 21 Unidades Municipais de Saúde em Belém-Pará, com 23 enfermeiros que atuavam em sala de imunização. A coleta de dados foi por meio de entrevistas individuais submetidas à análise de conteúdo temática. Resultados: Organizaram-se duas categorias: "Percepção dos enfermeiros sobre os conhecimentos dos usuários no contexto da imunização" e "Ações de educação em saúde na rotina das práticas relativas à imunização e elaboração da tecnologia educacional", que possibilitaram a construção de uma cartilha com orientações baseadas no produto dessas categorias. Conclusão: Os enfermeiros têm percepção dos conhecimentos dos usuários sobre a imunização. Reconhecem a importância de práticas educativas, embora não consigam realizá-las efetivamente, devido dificuldades do cotidiano gerencial e assistencial. A participação dos enfermeiros na construção da cartilha foi fundamental para obter-se uma ferramenta adequada a intermediar suas ações educativas junto aos usuários com potencial de colaborar significativamente para a atuação da enfermagem em salas de vacina. (AU)


Objective: To know the perception of primary care nurses regarding users' knowledge about immunization; Identify these nurses' practices on immunization; Build, in a shared way, an educational technology about immunization. Methods: Qualitative methodological research, carried out in 21 Municipal Health Units in Belém-Pará, with 23 nurses who worked in an immunization room. Data collection was carried out through individual interviews submitted to thematic content analysis. Results: Two categories were organized: "Nurses 'perception of users' knowledge in the context of immunization" and "Health education actions in the routine of immunization practices and the development of educational technology", which enabled the construction of a booklet with guidelines based on the product these categories. Conclusion: Nurses are aware of users' knowledge about immunization. They recognize the importance of educational practices, although they are unable to carry them out effectively, due to difficulties in the managerial and care routine. The nurses participation in the construction of the booklet was essential to obtain an adequate tool to mediate their educational actions with users with the potential to collaborate significantly for nursing performance in vaccine rooms. (AU)


Objetivo: Conocer la percepción de las enfermeras de atención primaria con respecto al conocimiento de los usuarios sobre la inmunización; Identificar las prácticas de estas enfermeras sobre inmunización; Construir, de manera compartida, una tecnología educativa sobre inmunización. Métodos: Investigación metodológica cualitativa, realizada en 21 Unidades Municipales de Salud en Belém-Pará, con 23 enfermeras que trabajaban en una sala de inmunización. La recopilación de datos se realizó a través de entrevistas individuales sometidas a análisis de contenido temático. Resultados: Se organizaron dos categorías: "Percepción de las enfermeras del conocimiento de los usuarios en el contexto de la inmunización" y "Acciones de educación para la salud en la rutina de las prácticas de inmunización y el dessarollo de la tecnología", lo que permitió la construcción de un folleto con pautas basadas en el producto de esas categorías. Conclusión: Las enfermeras conocen los conocimientos de los usuarios sobre la inmunización. Reconocen la importancia de las prácticas educativas, aunque no pueden llevarlas a cabo de manera efectiva, debido a las dificultades en la gestión y la rutina de atención. La participación de las enfermeras en la construcción del folleto fue esencial para obtener una herramienta adecuada para mediar sus acciones educativas con los usuarios con el potencial de colaborar significativamente para el desempeño de la enfermería en las salas de vacunas.

ABSTRACT

Introducción: Debido a la emergencia provocada por la pandemia por el virus SARS-CoV-2 se ha producido una crisis sanitaria global. Una vez disponibles las vacunas, se espera que jueguen un rol decisivo para el control de la enfermedad. Dichas vacunas fueron desarrolladas en tiempo récord por lo que es esencial monitorear su seguridad. Durante la Campaña de Vacunación contra COVID-19, todos los Eventos supuestamente atribuibles a vacunación e inmunización (ESAVI) debieron ser notificados al Ministerio de Salud de la Nación a través del Sistema Integrado de Información Sanitaria de Argentina (SIISA). Materiales y métodos: Se realizó un estudio observacional prospectivo desde el 04/01/2021 al 05/05/2021 en el personal del Hospital Garrahan. Se utilizaron dos métodos de vigilancia de ESAVI. La vigilancia pasiva incluyó las notificaciones voluntarias recibidas de forma telefónica y a través de un cuestionario publicado en intranet. La vigilancia activa se realizó sobre los primeros 947 trabajadores inmunizados, enviando el mismo cuestionario por WhatsApp. Resultados: Hasta el día 05/05/2021 fueron inmunizados 5056 agentes, 4865 con las dos dosis. Se notificaron 473 ESAVI. De ellos, 304 correspondían a la primera dosis y 169 a la segunda. La cantidad de notificaciones según su origen fue de 136 para la vigilancia pasiva, y 333 para la vigilancia activa. Se registraron 5 ESAVI graves; tres anafilaxias, un escotoma secundario a la hipertermia generada por la vacuna y una reacción alérgica grave. Los síntomas locales más frecuentes fueron: dolor, enrojecimiento, hinchazón e induración. Los síntomas sistémicos más frecuentes fueron: fiebre, febrícula, astenia, cefalea, mialgia, artralgia y síntomas gastrointestinales. Como tratamiento en la mayoría de los casos se utilizó paracetamol. Discusión: El presente trabajo logró recolectar un número significativo de notificaciones, brindando información útil al tratarse de una vacuna recientemente aprobada en nuestro país y el mundo. (AU)


Introduction: Due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic emergency, a global health crisis has occurred. Once vaccines become available, they are expected to play a decisive role in controlling the disease. These vaccines were developed in record time, and therefore it is essential to monitor their safety. During the COVID-19 Vaccination Campaign, all Events Suspected to be Attributable to Vaccination and Immunization (ESAVI) had to be notified to the National Ministry of Health through the Integrated Health Information System of Argentina (SIISA). Material and methods: A prospective observational study was conducted from 04/01/2021 to 05/05/2021 in the staff of Garrahan Hospital. Two methods of ESAVI surveillance were used. Passive surveillance included voluntary notifications received by telephone and through a questionnaire posted on intranet. Active surveillance was conducted on the first 947 immunized workers, sending the same questionnaire by WhatsApp. Results: Up to 05/05/2021, 5056 workers were immunized, of whom 4865 with two doses. A total of 473 ESAVI were reported. Of these, 304 corresponded to the first dose and 169 to the second. The number of notifications was 136 for passive surveillance and 333 for active surveillance. Five severe ESAVIs were recorded; three anaphylaxis, one scotoma secondary to vaccine-generated hyperthermia, and one severe allergic reaction. The most frequent local symptoms were: pain, redness, swelling, and induration. The most frequent systemic symptoms were: mild fever or fever, asthenia, headache, myalgia, arthralgia, and gastrointestinal symptoms. Paracetamol was used as treatment in most cases. Discussion: In the present study a significant number of notifications was collected, providing useful information on a vaccine recently approved in our country and in the world (AU)

ABSTRACT

Resumo O processo de elaboração do Plano de Imunização contra Covid-19 no Brasil se iniciou tardiamente e contou com a participação de especialistas incluindo o grupo técnico responsável pela definição de grupos prioritários para a vacinação. Este processo foi permeado de indefinições entre o Governo Federal e pesquisadores e, finalmente, no dia 20 de janeiro de 2021 foi divulgada a versão atualizada do Plano ainda incipiente no que tange a sua abrangência.


Abstract The process of developing Brazil's COVID-19 immunization plan began belatedly and involved a number of experts, including a technical group responsible for defining priority groups for vaccination. This process was permeated by contradictions between the government and researchers. Finally, on 20 January 2021, the government published an updated version of the plan, which remains limited in scope.

ABSTRACT

Abstract This study describes the incidence of early events supposedly attributable to vaccination or immunization (ESAVI) that occurred in healthcare workers who had been inoculated with the first component of the Sputnik V vaccine. Safety at 72 h post-immunization was analyzed based on a self-reported form. Between January 5 and January 20, 2021, in Buenos Aires, Argentina, a total of 707 healthcare workers (median age 35 yrs, female 67%) were vaccinated. The response rate was 96.6% (n: 683) and 487 (71.3%) participants reported at least one ESAVI. The incidence rate was 6.3 per 1000 person/hours. The total number of ESAVIs was 1434. A total of 469 local reactions were reported, 57% of the participants reported pain at the injection site, and 11% had redness and swelling. A total of 968 systemic reactions were informed, including new or worsened muscle pain, referred by 58% of the participants, fever referred by 40%, and diarrhea referred by 5%. Five percent (n: 34) had serious adverse events and one participant had to be hospitalized. The ESAVI rate was higher in females than males (66.4% versus 51.4%; HR 1.38; 95% CI 1.13-5.38) and in workers younger than 55 yrs old (63.0% versus 28.0%; HR 2.66; 95% CI 1.32-5.38). This study demonstrates high rates of early local and systemic reactions. However, serious events were rare. Studies on long-term safety, stratified by sex and age, are needed.


Resumen Este estudio describe la incidencia de eventos supuestamente atribuibles a vacunación o inmunización (ESAVI) en trabajadores de la salud después de la inmunización con el primer componente de la vacuna Sputnik V. La seguridad a las 72 horas de la inmunización se analizó en base a un auto-reporte. En tre el 5 y el 20 de enero de 2021, en Buenos Aires, Argentina, fueron vacunados 707 trabajadores de la salud (mediana de edad 35 años, 67% mujeres). La tasa de respuesta fue 96.6% (n: 683), y 487 participantes (71.3%) informaron al menos un ESAVI. Los ESAVI totales fueron 1434 y la incidencia fue 6.3 por 1000 personas/hora. Fueron informadas 469 reacciones locales: 57% de los participantes informaron dolor en el lugar de la inyección y 11% enrojecimiento e hinchazón. Entre las 968 reacciones sistémicas, el 58% de los participantes informaron dolor muscular nuevo o empeorado, 40% fiebre y 5% diarrea. El 5% (n: 34) presentó eventos adversos graves y un paciente tuvo que ser hospitalizado. La tasa de ESAVI fue mayor entre las mujeres (66.4% versus 51.4%; HR 1.38; IC 95% 1.13-5.38) y en el grupo de trabajadores menores de 55 años (63.0 versus 28.0; HR 2.66; IC 95% 1.32-5.38). Este estudio mostró altas tasas de reacciones tempranas locales y sistémicas; sin embargo, los eventos graves fueron raros. Son necesarios estudios sobre la seguridad a largo plazo, estratificados por sexo y edad.

ABSTRACT

O referido trabalho tem como objetivo analisar e avaliar a atual conjuntura das pesquisas científicas na busca da imunização eficaz contra a malária, destacando os principais mecanismos imunológicos e moleculares subjacentes à referida proteção, bem como, as perspectivas a curto e médio prazo. O presente estudo de revisão selecionou pesquisas nas bases de dados da Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online (Medline), National Library of Medicine (Pubmed), Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO), Web of Science e Scopus. Foram combinados os termos Malaria, Immunization, Vaccine and Epidemiology, com seus sinônimos remissivos e outros descritores associados, no período compreendido entre janeiro e julho de 2019. Como fator preponderante dos critérios de inclusão, foram selecionadas revisões sistemáticas com ou sem metanálise, publicadas nos últimos 5 anos, que discorressem detalhadamente sobre o tema, ou que apresentassem informações estatísticas ou históricas relevantes, relacionada ao tema. Como critérios de exclusão foram considerados: materiais literários e científicos, anteriores ao período de 2014 e que não apresentassem informações estatísticas ou histórica relevantes ao tema, ou que, não se adequassem à temática da pesquisa. Após a aplicação dos critérios de inclusão e exclusão, foi realizada a análise e seleção dos artigos. Dos 451 artigos identificados, 44 foram selecionados. As informações extraídas dos referidos trabalhos convergem no sentido de que a erradicação da malária é uma tarefa demasiadamente complexa, a qual não será alcançada com as vacinas atuais, havendo necessidade do desenvolvimento de ferramentas imunizadoras de maior eficácia. Apesar dos esforços, atualmente ainda não existe uma vacina eficaz na prevenção da infecção, mas vários estudos se encontram em andamento nessa vertente, tornando promissor o surgimento de uma vacina eficaz contra o parasita.


This study aims at analyzing and evaluating the current status of scientific research in the search for effective immunization against malaria, highlighting the key immunological and molecular mechanisms of such protection and the short- and medium-term perspectives. The search and selection of studies took place in the databases of the Medical Literature Analysis and Retrieval System Online (Medline); National Library of Medicine (Pubmed); Scientific Electronic Library Online (SciELO); Web of Science; and Scopus. The terms Malaria, Immunization, Vaccine, and Epidemiology were used, with their corresponding cross-referenced synonyms and other associated descriptors, including the period from January to July 2019. As a main factor in the inclusion criteria, systematic reviews with or without meta-analysis published in the last 5 years, presenting a detailed discourse about the topic, or relevant statistical or historical information related to the topic were selected. The following exclusion criteria were considered: literary and scientific materials, prior to 2014, and without statistical or historical information relevant to the theme, or which did not fit the research theme. After applying the inclusion and exclusion criteria, the articles were analyzed and selected. From a total of 451 identified articles, 44 were selected. The information extracted from the referred studies converge in the sense that malaria eradication is an overly complex task, which will not be achieved with the current vaccines, requiring the development of more effective immunizing tools. Despite all the efforts, there is no effective vaccine for preventing infection yet, but several studies are being developed in this area, making the emergence of an effective vaccine against the disease promising.

ABSTRACT

El presente manual pretender bridar los pasos a seguir para realizar una vigilancia activa de todos los eventos supuestamente atribuidos a la vacuna e inmunización que puede ocurrir con la aplicación de la vacuna contra el SARS-CoV-2 y que no se detecten por medio de la notificación espontanea , desarrollando una investigación con su respectivo análisis en un numero especifico de pacientes a quienes se le administren la vacuna, a fin de identificar componentes clínicos y farmaco-epidemiologicos que permitan conocer eventos serios no conocidos o nuevas señales


This manual aims to provide the steps to follow to carry out an active surveillance of all the events supposedly attributed to the vaccine and immunization that can occur with the application of the vaccine against SARS-CoV-2 and that are not detected by means of the spontaneous notification, developing an investigation with its respective analysis in a specific number of patients to whom the vaccine is administered, in order to identify clinical and pharmaco-epidemiological components that allow knowing serious events not known or new signs
