On February 21, Angeles City will be ready for the vaccination of children.

PAMPANGA CITY, ANGELES – On February 21, the city government will begin pediatric vaccinations for youngsters aged five to eleven.

At the City College of Angeles mega vaccination site, Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. declared Thursday that the city’s logistics, labor, and resources are now in place.

In a social media post, he stated that children’s vaccinations will be planned by barangay.

Reina Manuel, the head of the vaccination committee on ways and means, said that part of the preparation for the children’s vaccination is to decorate the venue with a circus theme to make the experience more enjoyable for them.

Manuel stated that each child will receive a gift bag with vitamins, paracetamol, candy, coloring pencils, and coloring pads after being vaccinated.

“It’s like rewarding them with sweets and prizes after they’ve been vaccinated.” “We completed the preparation to reassure them that immunizations are safe,” she explained.

The City Health Office, managed by Dr. Verona Guevarra, has collaborated with volunteer pediatricians who will be deployed at the immunization location, according to Irish Calaguas, the lead implementer of the city’s vaccine program.

Guevarra stated that the local government will follow the Department of Health’s standards, citing Pfizer as the vaccination provider for the children.

The vaccines will be supplied by the National Covid-19 Vaccination Operations Center, she added.

“Pabakuna natin ang ating mga anak sa mga magulang.” Po ngayong panahon ng pandemya, nakakalaking tulong ng bakuna bilang virus proteksyon, lalo na po ngayong panahon ng pandemya (To the parents, let our children be vaccinated. It’s a huge assistance in terms of viral defense, especially at this time of pandemic),” Guevarra remarked.

Meanwhile, the municipal government’s “Ronda Bakuna,” a house-to-house vaccination campaign, is continuing to administer first, second, and booster doses to adults.

The overall number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in the city is 14,517, with 80 ongoing infections as of February 16. The total number of survivors is 13,903, while the death toll continues at 534.

A total of 356,430 city residents were vaccinated for the first time, 331,882 were fully immunized, and 52,325 received booster doses.
