Minsal criticized Mama for not vaccinating her baby against influenza: She was hospitalized

At the Intermediate Hospital Antofagasta Regional Nursing Unit, there are nine-month-old babies, 16 days who are the fourth patients to be hospitalized for influenza in areas that have not been vaccinated.
"After six months the children must have been vaccinated, this baby was not taken by his mother to be vaccinated and now we have it in intermediary care, that is serious," said Health Seremi, Rossana Díaz.
This is the second case of hospitalization of non-immunized patients belonging to the risk group in Antofagasta, the first of which is older adults who have recovered from respiratory diseases, but who are still hospitalized because of heart conditions.
Seremi repeated calls to vaccinate: "The problem is getting serious, we have many cases – not dead – but are hospitalized in intermediate care and in the ICU, there is a difficult winter and we have to prepare ourselves," Diaz warned.
In the Antofagasta Region there are still vaccines available for people in one of the risk groups, who must approach a different Family Health Center (Cesfam) and request it.
