PBBM advises parents to vaccinate their children against measles, rubella, and polio.

Parents were advised to get their kids immunized against measles, rubella, and polio. President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.

Marcos urged parents to benefit from the Department of Health’s (DOH) month-long “Chikiting Ligtas” initiative, which aims to safeguard kids from diseases that can be prevented by vaccination, in a video posted on his official Facebook page.

“Atin ang responsibilidad na proteksyunan ang ating mga anak laban sa sakit, nasa atin ang bilang mga magulang. It is our duty as parents to shield our kids from all diseases. Hangad po nating magkaroon ng ligtas na kapaligiran at malusog na pangangatawan ng bawat batang Pilipino. Every Filipino child deserves a secure environment and good health, said Marcos.

“This May, let us join the Department of Health’s immunization campaign against measles, rubella, and polio,” he continued.

At least 95% of children aged 0 to 59 months are expected to receive polio, measles, and rubella vaccinations as part of the national Chikiting Ligtas 2023 campaign.

The parents were given Marcos’ assurance that the immunizations against communicable diseases are “free, safe, and effective.”

“Libre, ligtas, at epektibo ang mga bakunang ito; hence, there is no chance of ikabahala, please. (These vaccines are secure, cost-free, and efficient, so there is no need to fear.) Magtungo po tayo sa pinakamalapit na health center at mga itinalagang vaccination site sa ating barangay. Simply visit the neighborhood health center or a vaccination location designated for your town, he said.

Huwag po nating hayaang malagay sa panganib ang ating mga anak due to polio, rubella, or tigas. (Let’s protect them from any harm that could be brought on by measles, rubella, or polio.) Tiyakin po nating mabakunahan ang mga kabataan sa ilalim ng ating Chikiting Ligtas program. Let’s give them the Chikiting Ligtas vaccine),” Marcos continued.

According to United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund data, the Philippines has the second-highest percentage of children between 2019 and 2021 who have not received any vaccinations, second in East Asia and the Pacific, and fourth globally.
