DOH Asec. Ferrer brings vaccination crusade to Sarangani

ALABEL, Sarangani (March 15, 2022) - Dr. Roy Ferrer (extreme left), Department of Health (DOH) assistant secretary, together with Dr. Sulpicio Henry Legaspi Jr. (extreme right), DOH XII assistant regional director, and other staff from DOH XII confers with Vice Governor Elmer de Peralta (2nd from right) and Provincial Health Officer Dr. Arvin Alejandro (2nd from left) on March 11 at the Conference Room, JLC Bldg., Capitol grounds. They discussed the vaccination efforts of the province of Sarangani towards achieving the goal of inoculating all the target population. Also included in their discussion was the update of the status of some of the areas in the province that have low vaccination rates, especially those in the far-flung areas, and the interventions to be done to address these concerns. Ferrer said “when Dr. (Secretary) Duque gave the directive for Phase IV of the National Vaccination Day, I really personally requested to be assigned here (in Region XII) so that I can look into, particularly the details of concerns and issues regarding vaccination on all priority groups and booster shots.” After the meeting, the team conducted a “Sugod Bahay” strategy to vaccinate the unvaccinated, and administer booster shots to some.
