MANILA, Philippines- Tinitingnan ng National COVID-19 Vaccination Operations Center (NVOC) na isama ang bagong COVID-19 vaccines sa routine immunization sa ibang sakit.

Sinabi ng Department of Health (DOH), ilan lamang Ito sa mga estratehiya ng NVOC sa ilalim ng liderato ni DOH spokesperson Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire para palakasin ang vaccine uptake sa bansa.

Sa panahon ng transition period, ang NVOC at vaccination sites ay nagpapatuloy ng kanilang kasalukuyang operasyon sa pagbibigay ng bakuna at boosters sa eligible population.

“[The] NVOC is also reviewing existing policies to identify possible points for revision, one of which is the integration of COVID-19 vaccines to routine immunization,” ayon sa Health Department.

Samantala, sinabi ng DOH na nagsasagawa ito ng granular at localized analyses sa mga lugar na may mababang vaccine uptakes.

“Further, DOH and NVOC are currently focusing efforts to ramp-up the rollout of vaccines for our current priority groups through granular and localized analysis of areas with low vaccine coverage of 1st boosters and high numbers of unvaccinated. This is to ensure that strategies implemented to increase coverage are tailor fitted to best suit a given area or region,” ayon sa ahensiya.

Kamakailan ay inanunsyo ng National Task Force against COVID-19 (NTF) na nakamit na ng bansa ang target nitong gawing fully vaccinated ang 70 milyong Filipino laban sa COVID-19. Kris Jose
