MISAMIS ORIENTAL: The provincial Inter- Agency Task Force (IATF) and the Department of Health (DOH) were working closely to attain the “herd immunity” in the province.
“The strategy is part of the prioritization framework outlined by the national government’s IATF,” provincial Governor Yebgeny Vincente Emano said Saturday.
Emano said that under the herd immunity program, the stakeholders would also educate the people on the importance of the anti-COVID -19 vaccine.
According to Emano, the herd immunity could be attained only with the cooperation of the people.
