Abstract:

The main reason for small coverage of the population with inoculations against tularemia in the Stavropolskiy Kray over a period of many years was the tendency to carry out this measure simultaneously in all the enzootic rayons of the kray, regardless of the fact that based on degree of danger for the population they are not the same. With the aim of regulating this measure, the entire zone which was enzootic for tularemia was divided into rayons based on the degree of danger for the population and a planned vaccination was conducted in sequence according to the groups of rayons, beginning with the most dangerous and concluding this measure in enzootic but less dangerous rayons. The entire population in each group of rayons is covered by vaccinations during the period of one year, and after every five years a planned revaccination is conducted in the same sequence based on the groups of rayons. In the years between the regular mass inoculations, the only people subjected to immunization are those arriving from safe terrain and children who have reached their seventh year. Author
