In view of the measles epidemic that affected the country, a resolution was taken to enlarge the extent of vaccination range in school age groups, which were the most affected in such epidemic. The vaccination with the aerosol method, allowed the optimization of the vaccine, the application time, and the human resources. There were 208,045 scholastics vaccinated in Tabasco, a survey was performed in the jurisdiction of Jalpa de Méndez with 6,738 vaccinated children in order to find out the postvaccination reactions a week after the vaccine was inhaled. It was found in 1,844 children, that there were different signs and symptoms that did not represent a risk for the application of the aerosol method.
