Bacolod City slates AH1N1 vaccination

Bacolod City (5 May) -- The Bacolod City Health Office is set to launch its vaccination for the city health workers tomorrow (May 6).

The vaccination of health workers is recommended by the World Health Organization as they (health workers) are frontliners of the country?s health care system.

The program is conducted in partnership with the Department of Health which aims to protect those who are vulnerable of the virus such as the health workers, pregnant women, children aged five years old and below, people aged 60 years old and above, and people with diabetes, HIV, asthma and other illnesses.

There are about 420,000 health workers nationwide from both public and private sectors set to be vaccinated against the A(H1N1) flu.

Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia said the program will then be carried out to the various barangay health centers for proper implementation.

Leonardia stressed the importance of having the A(H1N1) vaccination as an effective protection against the deadly virus.

The City Health Office reminded those who will be immunized to inform the physician of any existing allergy to eggs and other food.

City Health also stressed that immunized persons may also notice redness, some swelling and pain in the part of the arm where they received the vaccination but assured that this will subside in one to two days.

The nationwide vaccination of health workers was launched by no less than President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in Zamboanga del Norte. (PIA/EAD) [top]
