Experts to look at vaccination programme
Health chiefs in the Canaries have set up a new vaccine technical group.
The group of experts, which includes the scientific societies involved in vaccination, will be responsible for reviewing, analysing and updating the vaccination schedule for children and adults of the autonomous community.
The new group will give support to a work team that had been operating for years and that now sees its composition expanded, giving access to all the scientific societies that are related to vaccines.
Experts say vaccines are a measure of control of great impact against certain communicable diseases and both are constantly changing.
Members will represent all sectors of the medical community in the Canaries, including doctors, public health orfficials, nurses and pharmacists.
