The epidemic situation in Bashkortostan is rather stable for today and its main indices are lower than the average Russian ones but as the news-service of the Ministry of health protection RB reports, the certain growth of sickness rate with enteric infections is observed in our Republic in the first quarter of 2010 as well as in Russia in a whole.

In the struggle against enteric infectious diseases Bashkortostan successfully develops the program of population vaccination. According to the latest information about 95-98% of population is covered with the immunization and medics say the timely immunization provides for the prevention of mass spreading of the infections and excludes severe forms of the diseases and lethal outcomes.
