Aim: In our country, children are routinely vaccinated against 13 diseases, free of charge, with a total of 18 doses between the ages of 0-2. In this study, New Type CoronaVirus Disease (COVID-19) is targeted to identify the outbreak's impact on vaccination rates in Turkey.
Method: Our study is a simple descriptive cross-sectional study. The data of the study were evaluated retrospectively. The units who agreed to participate and share data were listed, and one of every ten units was selected randomly, and the data of eleven family Medicine Units were included in the study.
Results: The decrease in the number of outpatient clinics in April 2020 was statistically significant. Vaccination rates decreased slightly in March and April but no statistically significant difference was found.
Conclusion: In order to maintain the vaccination rates not to decrease even in pandemic cases detected in our study, especially primary health care workers will continue to work with devotion.
Amaç: Ülkemizde çocuklara rutin olarak 0-2 yaş arası toplam 18 doz olmak üzere 13 hastalığa karşı ücretsiz aşı yapılmaktadır. Bu çalışmada, Yeni Tip Koronavirüs Hastalığı (COVID-19) salgınının Türkiye’deki aşılama oranları üzerindeki etkisinin belirlenmesi hedeflenmektedir.
Yöntem: Çalışmanın verileri geriye dönük olarak değerlendirildi. Katılmayı ve veri paylaşmayı kabul eden birimler listelenmiş ve her on üniteden biri rastgele seçilmiş 11 Aile Hekimliği Birimi’nin verileri çalışmaya dahil edilmiştir.
Bulgular: 2020 Nisan ayında poliklinik sayısındaki düşüş istatistiksel olarak anlamlıydı. Aşılama oranları Mart ve Nisan aylarında bir miktar azalmış ancak istatistiksel olarak anlamlı bir fark bulunmamıştır.
Sonuç: Çalışmada tespit edilen pandemi vakalarında bile aşılama oranlarının düşmemesinin devamı için özellikle birinci basamak sağlık çalışanları özveri ile çalışmalarını sürdürecektir.
