• Parents still wary over DOH immunization campaign


    ILOILO CITY: Parents of Grade I and Grade 7 students in public schools in Western Visayas are still wary of the school-based immunization campaign spearheaded by the Department of Health (DOH). The campaign started August 3, but there was a low-turnout. This came a few weeks after hundreds of students from different parts of the country fell ill after taking deworming pills, which is part of the DOH deworming campaign. Health officials assured that the vaccines against tetanus, diphtheria, measles, and rubella were approved by the World Health Organization and are safe and effective.
