Baja & Border News Translations: Hepatitis Vaccine Recommended; Mexicali Reforestation Project

ISSSTE Promotes Hepatitis B Vaccine (La Voz de la Frontera, 9/16/12 by Alejandro Garcia Magallón)

Mexicali, BC - The delegation of the ISSSTE in Baja California is promoting a vaccine against the hepatitis type B virus, which is preventable with this measure. Efraín Monreal Gastelum, a representative of ISSSTE, reported its application promotes the vaccination campaign among at-risk individuals.

Hepatitis is an inflammatory disease primarily affecting the liver. Its cause can be infectious (viral, bacterial, etc.), immune (by antibodies) or toxic. Among the best-known variations of this disease are type A, B and C. Type B can cause acute or chronic infection and persist in the blood causing cirrhosis of the liver, cancer of the liver, liver failure and death.

Currently the ISSSTE has Hepatitis B vaccine to administer to children and working age adults. Implementation is in two doses, the second one month after the first is given. In children, a first dose is given to the newborn, a second at two months of age and a third booster at six months.

A patient infected with any type of Hepatitis does not present with immediate symptoms takes since the incubation period is up to two months. During the first five or six days of infection, a patient may experience general fatigue, a lack of appetite and difficulty concentrating. In addition they may have joint or muscle pain, headaches, and intolerance to light.

After infection, the patient may be jaundiced, which is a yellowing of the skin, some dark urine discoloration, stained or discolored stools and conjunctivitis, which are yellow eyes. The Institute recommends a doctor be seen if any of the above symptoms are present for early and timely detection of the disease. http://www.oem.com.mx/lavozdelafrontera/notas/n2697183.htm

Second Stage of Reforestation Begins in Mexicali (La Voz de la Frontera, 9/18/12 by Sac Nicte Santos Malagon)

Mexicali, BC - The path of ecology began yesterday with the second stage of reforestation in Mexicali, with a goal of planting 100,000 trees by the end of 2012.

Mayra Cruz Montano, of JIU, reported that it is involved with the 20th Council’s Tree Donation Program and invites citizens, civic associations and schools, among others to participate by planting saplings in the municipality.

She commented it is very important to reforest the city, since trees improve the environment and quality of life, but most importantly they help eliminate, catch and hold pollutant particles.

This is the second season of the 20th City’s tree donation program, she said, and is expected to meet the goal set by Mayor Francisco Pérez Tejada to reforest Mexicali with the donation of 100,000 trees.

During the first season, the staff member said, 40,000 species were donated, so during the second, the target set is expected to be met with the participation of schools, institutions and companies with a strong commitment to the society and its environment.

She invited the community to contact the Office of Ecology for easy and convenient procedures to obtain different donated species including: Mesquite, mesquite without thorns, laurel, acacia, pirul and pioche, among others.

The Ecology Director explained that urban reforestation and the community can make a difference in the lives of the Mexicalenses and everyone can make a personal contribution. She added that trees absorb harmful CO2 gases and produce oxygen to restore the atmosphere for 18 people by each regular size tree.

For more information about the Municipal Ecology Program, you can go to the offices located at Calzada Independencia, Plaza Fiesta local 8-11 (b) from Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 5 PM or call 5 56 06. http://www.oem.com.mx/lavozdelafrontera/notas/n2699228.htm
