Elderly Fernandinos Get Free Vaccines [ Friday, 23rd of May 2014 | 3 years ago ]
Senior citizens are the target of said immunization campaign since they are very susceptible to pulmonary diseases that can range from mild to severe and, in some cases, fatal.
Under the Santiago administration’s governance agenda on Effective Health Programs, the drive is being carried out in the city's 35 barangays where health workers and nurses of the local government administer pneumococcal vaccination on target beneficiaries.
“We want to have a long-term and sustainable program against diseases. As the city mayor, I want all Fernandinos to become healthy individuals,” said Mayor EdSa in his speech.
Hermiño Lacson, 69, said that as a beneficiary he is very happy to see the government bringing its services almost at his doorstep. “Masaya ako dahil binibigyan kami ng importansya” he said.
Other services included in the barangay outreach mission are the distribution of Fernandino Cards and senior citizen cards, livelihood seminars, job referrals, free anti-rabies shots on dogs, among others.
