As the national government announced that more than seven thousand children aged 5 to 11-years-old were injected with their first dose of COVID-19 vaccine, more than four hundred children of the same age group got vaccinated in Muntinlupa City on the first day (February 7, 2022), according to a Manila Bulletin news report.
To put things in perspective, posted below is the excerpt from the Manila Bulletin news report. Some parts in boldface…
The Muntinlupa City government vaccinated a total of 419 kids aged five to 11 on the first day of the “Resbakuna Kids” campaign.
According to the city government, of the 419 kids, 240 were vaccinated at the Ospital ng Muntinlupa in Barangay Alabang consisting of 39 classified as Pediatric A3 or with comorbidities, and 201 without comorbidities.
At the Laguerta Health Center in Barangay Tunasan, 179 kids were vaccinated, all without comorbidities.
The city government is targeting to vaccinate 68,198 children aged 5 to 11 in Muntinlupa. As of Feb. 5, 10,755 kids have registered with the city’s vaccination program, or 16 percent of the target.
In the official press release issued by the City Government, it was stated that Mayor Jaime Fresnedi and other local officials led a ceremonial launching of the inoculation of 5-11 years old at Laguerta Health Center in Brgy. Tunasan. The mayor encouraged all parents in the city to register their children in the Muntinlupa COVID-19 Vaccination Program (MunCoVac) and assured them that vaccines approved by the Philippine Food and Drugs Administration are safe and effective. He also urged the public to get their booster shots as added protection against COVID-19.
More on vaccination, the dosage for kids aged 5 to 11-years-old is at 10 microgram/dose concentrate of Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine for each of them. The second dose shall be given three weeks after the first dose to complete the vaccination course.
Let me end this piece by asking you readers: What do you think about this newest development? Are you still concerned that no vaccination for kids aged 5 to 11 should be done simply because you think they are too young? Do you let anti-vaccine fanatics influence your perception about vaccination?
