VACCINATION hubs in the district health centers will not be open every day to accommodate other health programs, said Task Force Covid-19 Vaccination Cluster.

“Dili nato ni sya mahimo na everyday sa main health center kay daghan man tag programa sa Monday-Friday, so ang mahitabo ana they will have to choose one day kung asa sila pwede magbakuna for Covid[19], however the remaining days of the week, moadto gyud sila sa barangay ngadto na sila mag-vaccinate pud (We can’t do this every day in the main health center because we have other programs scheduled from Monday to Friday. So, what will happen is that they need to set a day when they can hold the vaccination for Covid[19]... for the remaining days they will be immersed in the barangays to vaccinate),” Task Force Covid-19 Vaccination Cluster Head Dr. Josephine Villafuerte said in an interview with the Davao City Disaster Risk Radio on July 5, 2022.

Villafuerte said for example, Wednesday is intended for the children’s health care program and Monday is for prenatal.

Villafuerte said the assigned person who will conduct the vaccination will only cater to another barangay once they have reached their target vaccinated individuals.

“So let’s say kung naa kay 500 nga target, dili lang nato na siya mahimo sa one day pwede sila mag-extend sa isang barangay hanggang matapos talaga nila, then lipat na naman sa ibang barangay (if you have 500 target individuals to be vaccinated, you can extend your stay in that particular barangay to reach your target that’s the only time that they will be able to cater the next barangay),” Villafuerte said.

Although a barangay or district already achieved a 70 percent vaccination rate, Villafuerte said they will still trace the unvaccinated individuals.

“Naa man gud barangay nga naay percentage coverage of 68 percent pero pagtan-aw diay namo ang coverage naa pa diay 4,000 nabilin so medyo malaki (There was a barangay that has a 68 percent coverage but after checking, they still have 4,000 unvaccinated individuals. That’s still big),” Villafuerte said. KSD
