By choice or ignorance, many patients do not recognize vaccination as a way to reduce the severity of some infections. It is necessary to inform and dispel myths among the population and health professionals, warns Telma Costa, from the Association for Research on Supportive Care in Oncology (AICSO) and an oncologist at the Centro Hospitalar de Vila Nova de Gaia/Espinho (CHVNG/E) . The alert comes as part of a vaccination awareness campaign by AICSO and the Directorate-General for Health, in partnership with various associations, such as APMGF, and professional societies in the field of Health.
