Abstract

Objective: To describe the adequacy of immunobiological conservation in the immunization rooms of the Western macro-region of Minas Gerais, Brazil. Methods: Descriptive study from a validated scale with a maximum score of 15 points. Descriptive analysis and association test between the scores obtained by the municipalities and variables of the external context were performed. Results: 275 out of a total of 295 immunization rooms were evaluated. The conservation of immunobiologicals in the macro-region obtained a mean score of 4 points (4/15). The absence or lack of inputs for the conservation of immunobiologicals and work processes requiring improvement was noted. Small municipalities presented better conservation of immunobiologicals (p=0.011). Conclusion: The immunobiological conservation in the immunization rooms of the macroregion West of Minas Gerais was considered inadequate.
