Although measles, rubella and poliomyelitis were eliminated from Argentina, they are still present in other countries of the world and the permanent mobility of people creates a risk of reintroduction of these viruses in the country. To sustain elimination, it is necessary to carry out periodic inoculation campaigns. Vaccination is the only strategy to prevent measles and rubella. The triple viral also protects against mumps.
Vaccine coverage fell due to the impact of the covid-19 pandemicwith an average decrease in 2020 similar to that recorded between 2009-2019.
In 2020, no vaccine in the national vaccination schedule, in any age group, exceeded a value of 80% coverage at the national level. The decrease in registered coverage implies a significant amount of the target population that has not been reached by immunization services and, therefore, a substantial increase in susceptible individuals that, accumulated with those of previous years, generate a scenario that predisposes and favors the reemergence of vaccine-preventable diseases. This is why it is essential to reach optimal vaccination coverage and surveillance systems. sensitive that can opportunely catch the cases.
