Gov’t discloses vaccination schedules for minors

The vaccination for minors in the Philippines will start on October 15 and will cover the 12 to 17 age bracket, said Vaccine czar Carlito Galvez Jr.

Eight hospitals will participate in the pilot run including the National Children’s Hospital, Philippine Heart Center, Fe del Mundo Medical Center, and the Philippine Children’s Medical Center in Quezon City.

Pasig City Children’s Hospital, the Philippine General Hospital in Manila, Makati Medical Center, and Saint Luke’s Medical Center in Taguig City were also vaccination centers.

Galvez said that the rollout will be done gradually in what they call a “phased approach” to build the confidence of the parents and guardians on the vaccine. 

The second phase of the vaccine rollout will begin on October 22 and will involve the conduct of simultaneous mini rollouts in all Metro Manila local governments. Meanwhile, the third phase on October 29 will cover the entire capital region and nearby areas that reached 50% senior citizen vaccination.

After these phases, vaccination in the Cordillera Administrative Region, Ilocos region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Calabarzon, Eastern Visayas, Northern Mindanao and Caraga are scheduled to follow.
