Robie de Guzman   •   October 22, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine government has commenced the second phase of the pilot implementation of the pediatric A3 COVID-19 vaccination, the Department of Health (DOH) said Friday.

The rollout of the campaign in the entire National Capital Region was marked by a ceremonial vaccination held at Cardinal Santos Medical Center, Ospital ng Paranaque and Quezon City General Hospital.

The DOH said that the vaccinations are currently being held in selected hospitals as the expansion will be conducted in phases.

The DOH, NVOC and local government units chose the vaccination sites or hospitals for the initial phases, which have the capacity to manage possible serious adverse reactions to vaccines and facilitate easy referral of patients.

The government is implementing Pediatric A3 vaccination in a phased approach in order to formulate strategies on how it will be rolled out to other regions, and possibly to regular vaccination sites, the DOH said.

“As with the vaccination process of the adults, the vaccination for children will be closely monitored to detect adverse events following immunization to ensure the safety of our young vaccine recipients,” said Health Undersecretary Tong-An during the ceremonial vaccination at Cardinal Santos Medical Center.

For phase 2, the following facilities have been added to the initial list of vaccination sites:

  • Caloocan City Medical Center (North and South)
  • Ospital ng Malabon
  • Navotas City Hospital
  • Valenzuela City Emergency Hospital
  • Marikina Sports Complex (near Amang Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center)
  • Quezon City General Hospital
  • Luke’s Medical Center Quezon City
  • Ospital ng Maynila
  • Ospital ng Makati
  • SM Megamall Mega Vaccination Site (near Mandaluyong City Medical Center)
  • Cardinal Santos Medical Center
  • Ospital ng Muntinlupa
  • Ospital ng Parañaque 1
  • University of Perpetual Help System Dalta
  • Pasay City General Hospital

St. Luke’s Medical Center – Global City will also cater to the Municipality of Pateros, the DOH said.

The DOH reminded those covered in the Pediatric A3 Group to first secure a vaccination schedule with the hospital and bring the following documents on the day of vaccination:

  • medical certificate detailing the child’s comorbidity
  • valid IDs of both the child and the parent or guardian
  • any proof of filiation like the birth certificate

The vaccine recipient must also be accompanied by the parent or guardian at the vaccination site, it added.

Phase 2 ng COVID-19 pediatric vaccination, sisimulan sa Biyernes – NVOC

MANILA, Philippines – Inihahanda na ng National Vaccination Operations Center (NVOC) ang lahat ng kailangan para sa pagsisimula ng phase 2 ng pagbabakuna sa mga batang may edad 12 hanggang 17 na may co-morbidities.

Ayon kay Dr. Kezia Rosario ng NVOC, magsisimula ang phase 2 ng pediatric vaccination sa Biyernes, Oct. 22.

Aniya, kabilang sa mga gagawing vaccination site ang mga non-hospital facility na inirekomenda ng local government units.

“We allowed several local governments after inspection. Nag-inspect po iyong NVOC at saka iyong CHDMM [Center for Health Development Metro Manila] ‘no, ng mga vaccination sites na ito,” ani Rosario.

Sa kabuuan, magiging 23 na ang vaccination site para sa COVID-19 pediatric vaccination kabilang ang walong ospital na kasalukuyang pinagdarausan ng pagbabakuna.

“Each of the local government units naman po ng National Capital Region has already prepared ng kanilang vaccination site using iyong hospital as a vaccination site. We had din na mga LGUs due to limitation ng spaces ng hospital have negotiated with us to use several of their nearby facilities as vaccination sites,” ani Rosario.

Wala pang inilalabas na listahan ng mga gagamiting vaccination site para sa Biyernes.

May basbas ng Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-MEID) ang desisyong gawin ang pediatric vaccination sa non-hospital venue.

“I believe tama rin yung mga LGU atleast hindi congested sa mga ospital at the same time yun transmission magkakaroon tayo ng medyo small ang probability ang transmission,” ani vaccine czar Carlito Galvez Jr.

Samantala, tiniyak naman ng NVOC na sapat ang supply ng bakunang magagamit para sa pagbabakuna sa mga bata.

Batay sa tala ng Department of Health (DOH) as of Oct. 19, nasa 3,416 na ang bilang ng mga 12 to 17-year old na nakatanggap ng first dose ng COVID-19 vaccines.

Una nang sinabi ng DOH na apat na bata ang napaulat na nakaranas ng adverse effects pagkatapos mabakunahan gaya ng allergic reaction ngunit lahat naman ay nasa maayos na kondisyon.

“Isang bata na nagkaroon ng pagtaas ng presyon but after 2 hours they were able to manage it, naging normal na. May nagkaroon ng allergic reaction but it was managed,” she said.

“May dalawang stress-related doon sa immunization, may anxiety sa pagbabakuna. Let me caution all of you, it’s not official yet,” she added.
