In an advisory, health officials said polio remains a threat and parents should make it a point to have their children immunized from the debilitating disease.
The DOH-Central Luzon issued guidelines for those who plan to go to health facilities to get their children vaccinated against polio:
Make it a habit to wash your hands.
Avoid touching your eyes, mouth and nose.
Don’t forget to wear a face mask.
Make it a habit to cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
