Antique health workers get first shot at AH1N1 vaccine

San Jose, Antique (27 May) -- Health Care personnel in the province of Antique were the first priority for vaccination of the AH1N1 vaccine donated by the World Health Organization.

A total of 3,225 frontline responders and health care workers to include doctors, nurses, midwives, nursing attendant, laboratory personnel, ambulance drivers, field health personnel of DepEd, barangay nutrition scholars and BHWs of both government and private hospitals will be given the vaccine because they are at higher risk of contacting with patients, specimen and other possible sources of contamination.

This campaign is in response to the Department of Health guideline on deployment and use of the Pandemic (H1N1) vaccines donated by the World Health Organization.

Influenza A (H1N1) vaccination is a health system response to reduce the impact of the pandemic spreading through human population across a large region or even worldwide. It will boost immunity against the new influenza virus and help mitigation efforts as the pandemic evolves.

As of this date, 69% of 3,225 total target in the province has been covered by the vaccination activity. The PHO aims to cover one hundred percent of health care personnel.

Exempt from coverage are those personnel who have allergies, especially to eggs and history of anaphylaxis and women in their first trimester of pregnancies. (PHO/PIA) [top]
