In Poland, the number of people infected with measles is
In Poland, measles infections are on the increase, and Health Minister Lukasz Szumowski has asked to leave him and his children vaccinated. AP reported today. In the Voivodeship of Mazovia, where the Warsaw metropolis is located, 17 children were recently infected with measles.
According to the minister, measles only infected children who did not let their parents vaccinate. "That should be a precaution to be alert, let's be smart, let's be smart, let's vaccinate," said Szumowski, who was trying to refute fears that vaccines could be dangerous for children.
He also pointed out that a child under 13 months is still sick with the vaccine. The only way to protect these children from infection is to provide sufficient population coverage, which should be at least 95%.

Measles infection is the most dangerous in children under six years of age, which can cause measles to cause life-threatening complications.
The World Health Organization (WHO) warned at the end of October that some countries in Europe, including Poland and the Czech Republic, had lost confidence in the safety of vaccination, leading to an increase in the incidence of some infectious diseases, including measles.
Measles is a highly infectious viral disease. In the initial phase, fever, coryza, conjunctivitis and cough appear in the patient. Later, there is a rash that is dark red and tiny spotted. The rash begins in the head, gradually spreading to the face, neck, abdomen and limbs.
