ALABEL, Sarangani (May 8, 2018) – Provincial Health Officer Arvin Alejandro announces the Ligtas Tigdas program during the flag ceremony on May 7. This Supplemental Immunization Activity is a door-to-door activity and for free that will cater to children ages 6 months up to 5 years old starting on May 9 until June 8. “Measle vaccines, since it has been given for more than decades, wala tayong narereport na serious side effects after immunization,” Dr. Alejandro said. “So, all parents should really subject their children to immunization dahil ang purpose naman natin dito at the end of the day is ang safety ng bata against vaccine preventable death and diseases.” This is a Mindanao-wide program in partnership with the Department of Health and Local Government Units. Moreover, the immunization is still for free even after June 8 at the nearest health center. (Jimmy Toribio-Donna Mahusay/SARANGANI COMMUNICATIONS SERVICE)</>
