More vaccination sites will be set up in Davao City for children aged 5 to 11
DAVAO CITY, Philippines – Following the successful implementation of a pilot program for pediatric immunization in hospitals last week, the municipal government here plans to open more district locations for children aged 5 to 11.
Dr. Michelle Schlosser, a spokesman for the Davao City Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19) Task Force, said two more schools and three malls will be used as additional pediatric immunization sites in a statement released Tuesday.
This resulted from the local government’s decision to distribute 20,000 vaccine doses in three designated locations – Almedras Gym, Vicente Hizon Central Elementary School, and San Roque Elementary School – beginning Tuesday.
“We expect that following the hospital’s success, and hopefully after the success of the three special sites, we will be able to open five more district sites,” Schlosser added.
The three locations are open to walk-ins, however, parents or guardians must provide a copy of the child’s birth certificate or a valid student ID, a valid ID of the parents or guardians, the child’s Safe Davao Quick Response (QR) Code, and a pen.
According to Schlosser, based on the number of immunizations available, three specific venues can accommodate eligible youngsters.
“[We will cater] as much as we can, with the goal of consuming all of the vaccines authorized to the 5-11 age group,” she stated.
Schlosser also commended the Southern Philippines Medical Center, Davao Doctors Hospital, Davao Medical School Foundation, and Seamen’s Hospital for inoculating 2,207 children successfully in the first week of the program.
The city plans to vaccinate 250,000 children aged 5 to 11.
