IPHO taps academe to ramp up Covid vax drive

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)–The Integrated Provincial Health Office (IPHO) is tapping the help of the academe sector to ramp up the Covid-19 vaccination efforts in Lanao del Sur.

The IPHO convened officials from the three schools divisions in the province Tuesday, June 7, to discuss strategies on how the education sector can contribute to increasing the vaccination coverage in the province.

“We are constantly reaching out to everyone to help us in this campaign and now we recognize the influence of our teachers and our school administrators which is the reason why we called for this coordination or consultation meeting,” said IPHO chief Dr. Alinader Minalang.

Minalang who also serves as the deputy chairperson of the Provincial Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases emphasized the need to strengthen further the vaccination efforts to protect school children from the invisible enemy.

“It is not only a matter of having ourselves protected but it is also a matter of protecting the lives and health of our children which are entrusted to our care,” he said.

During the meeting, Amai Pakpak Medical Center Internal Medicine Pulmonologist Dr. Norhanah Manua discussed the myths and facts about the Covid-19 vaccine while IPHO Technical Services Chief Dr. Apasrah Macumbal-Mapupuno presented the vaccination challenges and opportunities.

The schools divisions were also given the chance to present the vaccination status of their teachers and school personnel. (APB/PIA Lanao del Sur)
