MisOr LGU to inoculate employees’ kids

MISAMIS ORIENTAL (PIA)—The Misamis Oriental Provincial Health Office recently announced that they will be vaccinating children of the provincial government’s employees aged 5 to 11 years old.

“On Tuesday, February 22nd, we will begin vaccinating children aged 5 to 11 here at the Capitol. However, I will request that it be exclusive first for all children of Capitol employees,” Provincial Health Officer Dr. Jerie Calingasan said.

The health chief explained that due to the province’s limited vaccine supply, which includes only 360 vials or 3,600 doses of reformulated Pfizer vaccine, they are unable to accommodate children other than those of employees working at the Provincial Capitol.

He clarified that the doses, which will be used for the said age group, are different from the doses that are currently used for those aged 12 and up. The younger age group will receive a 0.3ml dose of Pfizer vaccine, while the older age group will receive a 0.5ml dose. The only similarity between the vaccines is that they will be administered every 21 days.

Despite the low dose, Calingasan reminded the parents that there may be side effects such as fever, chills, and joint and muscular pain that can last from 24 to 48 hours and can be treated with Paracetamol. However, if the effects last longer than 48 hours, parents should take their child in for a reevaluation or check-up.

As the vaccination campaign continues, the provincial health office reminded the parents to have their children vaccinated to protect the latter, their friends, and families against severe infection that may result in hospitalization due to COVID-19.

It would also help prepare schoolchildren for the face-to-face classes, the health chief added.

Meanwhile, for the municipal vaccination, pediatricians and ambulances of the eight Misamis Oriental provincial hospitals are on standby and ready to respond in the event of any immunization-related side effects. (JAKA/PIA-10/Misamis Oriental)
