Results: In the analysis of the study period, a total population of 11 to 13-year-old girls, 61785 received the first dose of the vaccine (D1), reaching a 103.25% coverage and, 30,561 of these received the second dose of vaccine, resulting in a 56.26% coverage. In all analyzed regions decreasing doses applied between the first (D1) and the second dose (D2) were found. In this analysis, the confidence interval to 95% were all small and all data were analyzed statistically significant at p<0.001. Conclusion: All micro-regions reached the vaccination goal of the State Departament of Health in the application of the first doses and two of them were above the national average. However, none reached the target in the second dose, four micro-regions were below the national average and tree above.
