    M?xico, D.F.- Ante el brote de influenza, las llamadas telef?nicas a m?dicos particulares se han incrementado considerablemente, para solicitarles la aplicaci?n de la vacuna contra ese mal, la cual en estos momentos ?podr?a no ser efectiva porque estamos, tal vez, ante un virus mutante?.

    Pediatras y especialistas en asma y alergias informaron que en el transcurso del d?a han recibido m?s de 50 llamadas telef?nicas de padres de familia preocupados por la salud de sus hijos.

    La respuesta generalizada es que en estos momentos es dif?cil encontrar disponible ese biol?gico y quienes lo tienen advierten a los pacientes que no se les garantiza una eficacia al 100 por ciento, porque el virus actual puede ser distinto al que se ten?a a finales de 2008.

    En entrevista, el pediatra Rogelio Tapia Nava, manifest? que ?la vacuna que tenemos actualmente fue programada para los meses de octubre, noviembre y diciembre, pero estamos en una temporada at?pica de influenza y a m? me queda la duda de si va a ser ?til la vacuna anual de 2008?.

    Expuso que a los padres de familia se les recomienda no acudir a sitios concurridos, no saludar de mano o beso, no compartir utensilios para comer, no compartir alimentos y no estar con personas enfermas, adem?s de consumir muchos l?quidos, fruta y verdura, y lavarse frecuentemente las manos.

    Agreg? que a quienes insisten en la aplicaci?n de la vacuna se les informa que no ofrece una protecci?n al 100 por ciento y el costo promedio es de entre 200 y 250 pesos y no descart? que m?dicos con poca ?tica ?aprovechen la situaci?n, y si tienen la vacuna la ofrezcan al doble o triple de su precio?.

    El director del Centro de Asma y Alergia de M?xico, Carlos Le?n Ram?rez, coincidi? en que en el transcurso de este viernes y luego de que las autoridades tomaran medidas preventivas para evitar el contagio de influenza en las escuelas, ha recibido m?s de 50 llamadas telef?nicas de padres de familia angustiados.

    ?La totalidad de las llamadas han sido de padres de familia preocupados por sus hijos, las llamadas y no las consultas es lo que se ha incrementado para pedirnos b?sicamente la vacuna contra la influenza?, se?al?.

    A su consideraci?n, ?la vacuna si podr?a ofrecer cierta protecci?n mientras no se compruebe que es un virus mutante, pero lamentablemente en estos momentos no la hemos conseguido con los distribuidores, porque las pocas vacunas con que cuentan se las est?n vendiendo al gobierno?.

    El especialista dijo que en estos momentos la mejor protecci?n es evitar el contagio, por lo que recomend? no asistir a centros comerciales, cines, teatros o a cualquier otro lugar p?blico cerrado.

    Mexico, DF-Before the outbreak of influenza, phone calls to doctors have increased considerably, to request application of the vaccine against this evil, which at this time "might not be effective because we are perhaps at a mutant virus.

    Pediatricians and specialists in asthma and allergies reported that during the day have received over 50 phone calls from parents worried about their children's health.

    The answer is that it is now difficult to find the available biological and who have advised patients who are not guaranteed a 100 percent effective because the virus may be present other than it was in late 2008.

    In an interview, the pediatrician Rogelio Tapia Nava, said that "the vaccine we have now been scheduled for October, November and December, but we are in an unusual flu season and I'm sure of is whether it will be useful 2008 annual vaccine. "

    He explained that the parents are advised not to go to crowded places, no greeting, hand or kiss, not sharing eating utensils, no food and not share with sick people, in addition to consuming plenty of fluids, fruits and vegetables, and wash their hands often.

    He added that those who insist on the application of the vaccine were reported not offered protection to 100 per cent and the average cost is between 200 and 250 pesos and does not rule out that with little medical ethics "exploit the situation, and if they have The vaccine offered to double or triple their price. "

    The director of the Asthma and Allergy Center of Mexico, Carlos Leon Ramirez agreed that during this Friday and then that the authorities take preventive measures to avoid contracting influenza in schools, has received over 50 phone calls parent distress.

    "All the calls were from parents concerned about their children, calls and consultations is not what is basically asking for increased influenza vaccine," he said.

    For your consideration, "if the vaccine could offer some protection until it is found that a mutant virus, but unfortunately at the moment we have not succeeded with distributors because they have few vaccines are being sold to the government."

    The specialist said that currently the best protection is to avoid infection, and therefore recommended not to attend malls, cinemas, theaters or other public place closed.

      Don't know. Maybe they have some leftovers from the 1976 swine influenza scare, but whether that would be effective now, no idea. I wonder if the pharma industry is going work overtime this weekend to start making a new vaccine...
