Ege University School of Medicine Professor Prof. Dr. Although Zafer Kurugöl’s statement in a live broadcast that a baby was accidentally vaccinated against Kovid and that there was no problem in following the baby, provoked great reactions on social media, the families said : “Are our children vaccinated against Kovid without knowing us?” He began looking for family health centers with anxiety.
THE EXPLANATIONS ARRIVED IN CASE
The Ministry of Health, for its part, made a written statement on the subject: “The statements of Professor Zafer Kurugöl, one of the professors in the Faculty of Medicine at Ege University, about incorrect vaccines for babies are unacceptable. “It is not possible for our current vaccine safety infrastructure to justify these allegations. An investigation has been launched,” he said. The President of the Federation of Family Medicine Employees (AHESEN), Dr. Gürsel Özer, on the other hand, told the Demirören news agency: “A separate vaccination system is used for Kovid vaccines. Infant vaccinations and Kovid vaccines do not work by the same system. our families should never hesitate to vaccinate children. ” Paralysis causes more deaths or disabilities in children than Covid, ”he said.
“TABLES IN CHILDREN ARE MORE DANGEROUS THAN CVPIDS”
According to data from the Ministry of Health, an average of 1 million 200,000 babies are vaccinated annually from 0 to 24 months. Vaccines are also given in the 48-year-old and 13-year-old school age groups at the FHC. Approximately 4.5 million doses are administered annually as a childhood vaccine alone. Noting that Turkey is the first in Europe in childhood vaccinations, the President of AHESEN, Dr. Özer said: “Unfortunately, an unfortunate statement came from Izmir. There may have been such an incident, but it should not be forgotten that this is an isolated incident. Judicial authorities are already investigating the incident. and what will be done will be done.Today, many of our patients have returned to us on this subject.Turkey has been vacant in Europe for the last 15 years. “First of all, our childhood vaccination rates exceed 95%. We attach great importance to childhood vaccinations. of these diseases, such as measles, are more lethal than Kovid, ”he said.
“A CHILD WHO MEASURES CAN SPEAK YEARS LATER”
Noting that a child with measles is at risk for a stroke 10-20 years later, Dr. Özer said: “We’ve seen disabled people around us, most of them became like that after polio disease. But we don’t see them in recent years. And that’s thanks to vaccination. There are two important things in vaccination.First, you need to protect the vaccine very well, both in time.Our system, in this sense, is a very good system.From the moment the vaccine leaves the factory in our country, first of all, temperature control is done very strictly.the second is recorded electronically.These follow-ups continue even after arriving at our family health centers.Last “We know very well that the vaccine is stored at 2-8 degrees until we give it to the user and our baby. If there is a malfunction, the system notifies us immediately and these vaccines are destroyed, ”he said.
“CAVID VACCINATIONS AND CHILDHOOD ARE FOLLOWED WITH A DIFFERENT SYSTEM”
Drawing attention to the vaccination programs used in family medicine, Dr. Özer stated that these two are different from the system used in vaccination against Kovid and continued his words as follows: “These are the programs that our family health professionals use together. He is already registered in the system at who, what vaccine will be given what month.When the child is taken, the bar code of the vaccine is read first.If there is an additional situation, if there is an error, the system is already warned. Kovid vaccines are made with a separate program, which is very easy to distinguish, and the Kovid vaccine, especially known as the German vaccine, is already given in 6 doses. they are in simple doses. “There is only one. multiple dose vaccine, and this is the tuberculosis vaccine. You can’t mix the two. I just want to tell our families: just as they used to come and vaccinate their children, I also vaccinated my own children here, and we will continue to vaccinate them from now on. “We are a very successful country in this regard.”
“Even appointment times are different”
Istanbul Family Health Center nurse Hamit Demir İlknur Kuvat noted that childhood vaccines and vaccines against Kovid are given at different times during appointments: “We receive childhood vaccines until 11:00 a.m. In the morning, after 11:00, as the Kovid vaccines are more intense. “We assign a longer period of time to these vaccines. Therefore, it is not possible that there is confusion in this regard, ”he said.
