Program Coordinator, Dr. Renely Tungol said that some 5,700 Grade 4 students from all public schools in the city will be given free dengue vaccine this month.
“We started administering the vaccine last April 4 and we are glad that no negative reactions were reported, so far.”

224 dengue cases were recorded by the CHO from January of this year, resulting to a 35 % increase compared with the same period in 2015 with only 165 cases.
“We are lucky to be one of the pilot receivers of this free vaccine. We need your support to ensure that children are protected against dengue,” Santiago said.
