Letโ€™s Resbak-ulit!โ€ with government agencies and civil society organization at Brentwood Suites, Quezon Ave., Quezon City.ย 

The meeting aims to create strategies to attain the 57% target of the unvaccinated 5-11 years old children in the CALABARZON Region by the end of June. 

โ€œThis has been our plan, to convene all our partner agencies to strengthen our collaborative efforts in improving vaccination acceptance among parents and guardians of 5-11-year-old children, now that many of them have started the face-to-face classes,โ€ Asst. Regional Director Hernandez said.

โ€œSchool-aged children have a higher risk of getting infected with COVID-19; thatโ€™s why other than our elders and those who have comorbidities, these children are one of our top priorities,โ€ Hernandez emphasized.
