Schools eyed as Covid-19 vaccination venue in Cagayan de Oro

SCHOOLS in Cagayan de Oro are some of the probable venues for the Covid-19 vaccination rollout program, City Health Officer Dr. Lorraine Nery said Tuesday, January 26.

Also listed as possible venues are the barangay health centers and hospitals in the city, Nery added.

The city health officer said the National Government wanted to expand its choices for venues to serve as vaccination centers for the public, which they discussed during the webinar conducted by the Department of Health.

"Hospitals, health centers, apil na ang mga schools ug uban pang mga facilities nga pwede pa nato magamit for the rollout later," Nery said.

She also mentioned that another webinar on online registration for vaccine recipients in the city will be conducted. This will be joined by the City Management Information System (CMIS), which will be working with the City Health Office and City Information Office to build a reliable database of target recipients for the vaccine.

Meanwhile, the second batch for the training involving health center personnel concerning the vaccination process, facilitated by the City Health Office and Department of Health (DOH) and conducted in the covered of Barangay Gusa, is ongoing.

"Ubay-ubay na karon ang atong mga activities in preparation for the rollout sa kaning atong Covid-19 nga vaccination deployment," Nery said.
