The Las Piñas local government is aiming to provide fundamental vaccines to 4,000 children from the city during its participation in the Department of Heath’s Chikiting Bakunation drive.

The vaccination drive started on Monday and would last until June 10.

The campaign aims to administer the tuberculosis, polio, measles and 5-in-1 vaccines to children.

The Las Piñas City government would conduct house to house visits for the vaccination.

“Nakikiisa ang pamahalaang lungsod ng Las Piñas sa Chikiting Bakunation na proyekto ng Department of Health na naglalayon na maabot ang mga kabataang hindi pa nabakunahan ng mga fundamental vaccines o di kaya ay yung mga kabataang hindi pa nakakumpleto ng mga bakuna bunsod na rin sa pagkakaroon ng lockdown sa mga iba’t-ibang bahagi ng lungsod,” it said on Facebook.

The DOH visited Barangay CAA in the city on Monday to monitor and evaluate the conduct of the vaccination drive.
