Antipolo City joins promotion of routine and catch-up immunization
Antipolo City Mayor Andrea Ynares has committed to protecting babies and children through routine and catch-immunization against vaccine-preventable disease.
Ynares joined the Center for Health Development, Department of Health, World Health Organization and UNICEF Philippines in the endeavor to promote healthier and longer life through vaccination.
The city would take part in the national vaccination days for routine and catch-up immunization, which is called “Chikiting Bakunation Days,” she said.
These would be held during Thursday and Friday in the last week of the month, from April to June.
The program aims to vaccinate 1.1 million babies.
Ynares called on mothers to participate in the program.
“Magtungo sa pinakamalapit na Health Centers sa inyong lugar at sama-sama nating bigyang proteksyon ang ating mga chikiting laban sa mga vaccine preventable diseases.
A healthy family is a happy family,” she said on Facebook.
