Pampanga’s capital city aims to vaccinate 44,500 children against Covid-19

PAMPANGA’S CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – In 2019, the local government plans to vaccinate roughly 44,000 youngsters aged 5 to 11 years old against coronavirus sickness (Covid-19).

On Friday, the company stated this at the introduction of its Covid-19 immunization for children at SM City Pampanga.

“We have a target population of 44,000 for ‘Resbakuna Kids,’ but for today’s launch, we have 300 to 350 slots ready natin basta pre-registered at naka schedule today,” said Dr. Iris Muoz, the manager of the City’s National Immunization Program (NIP), during the launch.

Mayor Edwin Santiago greeted the children, parents, and guests, who included Secretary Vince Dizon, the National Task Force Against COVID-19’s Deputy Chief Implementer, and Governor Dennis Pineda.

The gathering, he claimed, reflects the city’s ongoing fight against Covid-19.

“Ang tagal nating hinintay na dumating ang pagkakataong ito, ang mabakunahan ang ating mga anak (We’ve been waiting for this opportunity to vaccinate our children for a long time),” Santiago remarked.

Pfizer, the only vaccine brand that gained emergency use authorization from the Food and Drug Administration for younger children, was given to youngsters from several communities in the city.

To amuse the children, the immunization location at the SM mall was themed as a birthday party.

The children were taken to the post-vaccination area after getting the vaccine to be monitored for any possible side effects.

SM City Pampanga also gave them free paracetamol, popcorn, and cotton candies.

When presenting their children for immunization, Muoz said parents or guardians must produce a photocopy of each child’s birth certificate issued by the Philippine Statistics Office, a school ID, or a barangay certification with a photo.

Pre-registration is required for children to receive their Quick Response (QR) codes, which will be given to their individual barangays for scheduling.

Heroes Hall, Our Lady of Fatima University, SM City Telabastagan, and Waltermart are the city’s major vaccination locations.

In the following days, the local government expects to offer vaccinations at SM San Fernando Downtown.

Meanwhile, children with comorbidities should bring their medical certificates to the Jose B. Lingad Memorial General Hospital Medical Center to get immunized (JBLMGHMC).

Parents should not be concerned about the vaccine, according to Dr. Monserrat Chichioco, chief of JBLMGHMC, because it is safe and tested for children.

“Ito po ang magiging daan sa mga anak natin para makabalik sa normal na pamumuhay,” says the author. Ito po ay component ng ating mga anak’s social and mental growth (This would allow our children to resume their normal lives.) This is part of our children’s social and mental growth),” Chichioco stated.
