 Communiqué du Ministère de la Santé et de la Qualité de la vie
Il est porté à l’attention de tous les futurs pèlerins souhaitant se rendre à la Mecque en Arabie Saoudite pour accomplir l’Umra que, suite aux récentes suppositions émises au sujet des vaccins contre la méningite, le Ministère de la Santé et de la Qualité de la vie tient à rassurer que :
  1. Le vaccin conjugué contre la méningite (Meningitis Conjugate Vaccine) est disponible à l’International Vaccination Centre (IVC), qui se trouve au Mutual Aid Building au Square Guy Rozemont à Port-Louis.
  2. Le prix proposé pour l’administration d’une dose de ce vaccin est de Rs 1,325.00.
  3. L’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS) avait recommandé l’usage du vaccin conjugué contre la méningite (Meningitis Conjugate Vaccine) au cours du troisième trimestre de 2016.  
  4. Il faut savoir qu’auparavant, le ministère utilisait le vaccin polysaccharidique (Meningitis Polysaccharide Vaccine) dont le prix proposé était de Rs 420.00 et, dont la production a été discontinuée.
  5. Une décision avait été prise par le ministère le 23 décembre 2016 d’accorder gratuitement le vaccin conjugué contre la méningite (Meningitis Conjugate Vaccine) à seulement ceux souhaitant se rendre à la Mecque en Arabie Saoudite pour accomplir le Hajj.
  6. En outre, au cours d’une réunion tenue et présidée par un haut cadre du ministère de la santé le 12 janvier 2017, celui-ci avait informé les représentants du Centre culturel islamique (ICC) que les pèlerins pour le pèlerinage sacré du Hajj continueront à bénéficier gratuitement du service de vaccination contre la méningite mais que ceux désirant accomplir l’Umra devront payer pour l’administration du vaccin conjugué contre la méningite (Meningitis Conjugate Vaccine).
  7. Il est à souligner que le vaccin conjugué contre la méningite (Meningitis Conjugate Vaccine) assure une protection allant jusqu’à cinq ans au lieu de trois ans comme le prévoyait le vaccin polysaccharidique (Meningitis Polysaccharide Vaccine).
