DOH commends Bulacan government for Covid-19 vax rollout
The Department of Health (DOH) Central Luzon Center for Health Development has commended the Bulacan provincial government under Governor Daniel Fernando for its preparedness in the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccination program.
The province, according to offiials, has accomplished 69 percent of the vaccination plan including coordination, and financing and budgeting; prioritization and targeting; service delivery; training, monitoring/supervision; vaccines, cold chain, and logistics; safety surveillance and response; demand generation, social mobilization, and communication.
Dr. Hjordis Marushka Celis, Provincial Health Officer II, gave the update during a meeting on “Bulacan Vaccination Logistics Preparedness” at the Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center on Wednesday.
According to a Manila Bulletin report, Celis gave feedback from the previous simulation exercise to the DOH representatives to properly address shortcomings experienced during the exercise.
Dr. Leilani Mangulabnan, DOH Chief of Local Health Support Division, “commended the progress of the province in terms of preparing the micro plan for vaccination,” the report said.
“Mahalaga po ‘yung mga naipresent niyo na micro plan, ito po yung pinaka-essential. Ang microplan po ang magiging key para maging matagumpay po ang ating pagbabakuna,” she was quoted as saying.
Mangulabnan commended the province “for having a very good plan for communication to address vaccine hesitancy and promote vaccine confidence,” the report said.
In response, Fernando told the DOH that “they are open to any recommendations that may improve the province’s vaccination plan.”
“Kailan lamang ay nagkaroon tayo ng simulation exercise na naging matagumpay naman po at naipakita natin na ang Province of Bulacan ay may capability naman dito sa pagsasagawa ng vaccination,” he was quoted as saying.
