Thousands Benefited From Ligtas-Tigdas Campaign [ Wednesday, 24th of September 2014 | 3 years ago ]
The mass immunization campaign aims to help lessen the growing cases of measles, as well as to make the Philippines a polio-free country, including the LGU of San Fernando, Pampanga.
“Nagbibigay tayo ng libreng bakuna sa mga batang may edad limang taon pababa” said health officer Eloisa Aquino adding that the massive vaccination is still on-going until September 30.
She noted that fixed post in 44 health centers which are found in the city’s 35 barangays were established to ensure that everyone can avail the program.
“Mayroon din tayong mga itinalagang health team sa mga SM Pampanga, Robinsons Starmills at Walter Mart upang mas mapadali ang pagbabakuna gayun din sa mga pribadong unibersidad tulad ng University of Assumption at St. Scholasticas Academy” said Aquino.
She explained that this is a supplemental immunization activity therefore children who were already immunized are still encouraged to avail the medication.
“Nag-aapela kami sa mga pribadong ospital, centers, at iba pang health institution na payahunan ang kanilang mga pasyente na magpabakuna para maiwasan natin ang measles outbreak na naganap sa Visayas kamakailan lamang.”
On the other hand, Dr. Leticia Yap, Medical Director of VL Makabali Memorial Hospital, said that they will be open Wednesday and Friday to help the LGU in the immunization drive.
“Dinala natin sa ating mga barangay ang pagbibigay ng serbisyo ng gubyerno lalo na ang mga pang-kalusugan, libre ito para sa lahat ng sektor. Tinitiyak natin na malusog at ligtas ang bawat Fernandino” said Mayor Edwin D. Santiago.
