Jabs for minors to go full blast

Buoyed by the wide acceptance of the ongoing vaccination campaign of minors and the recognition of the Department of Health citing Bacolod City as the top performer nationwide in administering Pfizer jabs to the 12-17 population, the local government is going full blast with its inoculation of teeners.

Dr. Chris Sorongon, deputy for medical, data analysis and management of the Emergency Operations Center-Task Force, said they have forged cooperation with the Department of Education, including private schools, and the Sangguniang Kabataan, in efforts to vaccinate minors.

BARANGAY, SK SUPPORT

Beginning next week, Sorongon said, the LGU, through the Emergency Operations Center-Task Force, headed by former City Administrator Em Legaspi-Ang, will allocate vaccines for the 12-17 age-group in all 27 barangay-based vaccination centers.

The SK Federation has also committed to help in the campaign and the master listing of pediatric age-group to reach as many minors, Sorongon added.

FULL SPEED AHEAD

DepEd’s Bacolod City Schools Division has also been tapped, and Sorongon said that public and private schools are currently working on the master listing of student-vaccinees.

Many private schools, however, have already completed their master list and St. Scholastica’s  Academy, had, in fact, 339 vaccinees Friday.

Students from the Bacolod Tay Tung High School are scheduled for inoculation today; Colegio San Agustin Bacolod, Nov.10; University of St. La Salle-Integrated School, Nov. 11; La Consolacion College and St. John’s Institute, Nov. 12, and Trinity Christian School, Nov. 13, the EOC official said.

Dr. Edwin Miraflor, Jr., officer-in-charge of the City Health Office, disclosed that big barangays will also be allocated 20 vials or 140 doses for the minor population, while clustered barangays will have 5 vials or 35 doses, each, Sorongon said.*
