Booklet BG 

On vaccines and vaccinations

The main goal of the present manual is to arm with basic knowledge on vaccines health specialists – RHI experts, general practitioners, pediatricians, medical students, nurses, health mediators – about vaccines in general and also specifically about mandatory vaccinations.  Recommendatory vaccines have also been mentioned – like the flu vaccines, the cervical cancer vaccine, the rotavirus vaccine. The attention is also drawn to vaccinations when travelling (Hepatitis A vaccine) due to the increasing trips of Bulgarian citizens to exotic destinations, to which their immune system is unaccustomed.
With this issue the Bulgarian Family Planning and Sexual Health Association hopes to answer the multitude of questions posed by parents, teachers, NGO representatives, media, and other helping professions specialists about the benefits, effects and tolerance towards modern vaccines.

‘My Body, My Rights’: Health Mediators form Yambol Municipality about their work in State of Emergency Conditions

Yambol, May 2020

The parents are unemployed. Several days ago one of the brothers has come from abroad, unfortunately with no money. All the family does not have the right to go out of home. They all are quarantined. One day while she is working in her cabinet Kina Asenova is hearing a kid crying on the street. She is going out to see what is happening and sees the family’s six-year old child shaking on the ground and screaming. She finds out that the boy wants a snack very much and the family cannot afford that kind of expense... She goes to the shop, buys a box of the snacks and gives it them. ‘The next day we started distributing food. We gave it away without judging people’s race. We give as well for mentally disabled and people with different diseases’.
Kina is health mediator from 2008, but she works with people on different projects from the 2000s. People trust her. Her colleagues – Atanaska Mutafova, Asen Stoyanov, Atanas Atanasov, Ivan Ivanov and the mediators from Tundja Municipality daily do work in the villages Kukorevo, Kozarevo, Veselinovo, Drazhevo, Hadjidimovo. They work all day long, even on weekends. ‘Since Bulgaria declared state of emergency because of the Covid pandemic we are every day on the field, we give information on the infection, explain them why it’s important to stay at home. We are tracking people who came back from abroad and we make sure that they follow the quarantine guidelines. We have such people in almost every village.’
