ICYMI : Albay Rep. Joey Salceda said the government must not repeat the mistakes of the Dengvaxia controversy that has been tagged as one reason for the vaccine hesitancy of many Filipinos.

MANILA, Philippines — As the government prepares to start the vaccination of children aged 5 to 11, a lawmaker urged health authorities to learn the lessons of the 2016 Dengvaxia vaccine mess

The deaths of some children who received the dengue vaccine caused an outcry and criminal complaints were lodged against former government officials. Sanofi Pasteur later returned the cost of the vaccine.The Department of Justice also filed charges against the head of the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine, Dr. Rose Cepeding, for her alleged role in key research that turned out to have been funded by Sanofi Pasteur

In 2021, a study by the University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication suggested that the Dengvaxia scandal contributed to the hesitancy of some Filipinos to get inoculated against COVID-19.Salceda said the government should conduct stronger screening of children receiving COVID-19 jabs, a comprehensive public communications campaign and informed consent for parents.

Thousands protest in Vienna against mandatory vaccinationAustria is the first country in Europe to make COVID-19 vaccines mandatory. This news is misleading. You have to include that the ones who are protesting aren’t the “normal citizens” but mostly members of the far-right faction and the conspiracy theorists. A shame France will catch up soon

Doctors deployed to unvaccinated to explain efficacy of vaccines —ULAP presidentMedical doctors are being deployed to unvaccinated people in provinces to explain the benefits of getting vaccinated against COVID-19, an official of the Union of Local Authorities of the Philippines said Sunday.  Ipa mandatory na ng gobyerno kamo, kasi ganun din naman e, halos wala na karapatan kumilos ang mga unvaccinated, no vaccine no ride? Parehong kawawa drivers at pasahero sa katangahan na yan.

Chel Diokno: Vaccine mandate can only de done through law, must be constitutionalHuman rights lawyer and senatorial aspirant Jose Manuel "Chel" Diokno on Sunday refuted a news report saying he is pushing for mandatory vaccination, and clarified his stance on the matter. Kontrapelo kahit kailan. Yep. No votes from mel 🙄 Taena kaya di umuusad dahil sa gaya mo...kya di ka manalo nalo eh..walang alam kungdi umepal ng epal 🤦🤦 PANDEMIC POLITICS !!! The best vaccine education that public should listen to must not come from politicians vying for elections but from those unvaccinated in the ICUs, or those recovered now but have huge hospital bills, or from family of those who died of Covid w/o getting vax

CBCP head: Marcos dictatorship not a ‘golden age’ for PH The deaths of some children who received the dengue vaccine caused an outcry and criminal complaints were lodged against former government officials. Sanofi Pasteur later returned the cost of the vaccine. The Department of Justice also filed charges against the head of the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine, Dr. Rose Cepeding, for her alleged role in key research that turned out to have been funded by Sanofi Pasteur In 2021, a study by the University of the Philippines College of Mass Communication suggested that the Dengvaxia scandal contributed to the hesitancy of some Filipinos to get inoculated against COVID-19. Salceda said the government should conduct stronger screening of children receiving COVID-19 jabs, a comprehensive public communications campaign and informed consent for parents. “We should learn from its lessons so we don’t spoil what is in all likelihood something that is for the common good,” he said. “There is a different sentimental and emotional response to pediatric vaccination. So, we have to be careful, sensitive and considerate in rolling the program out,” he added. As the government scrambled to meet its inoculation targets, fake vaccination cards emerged in Cotabato City, prompting the Philippine National Police to warn the public that it would detain and charge individuals who try to use counterfeit inoculation cards. ADVERTISEMENT Gen. Dionardo Carlos, chief of the PNP, said on Saturday that those caught falsifying, tampering, or using fake vaccination cards face one to six months in prison and fines ranging from P20,000 to P50,000. He said the PNP could verify if a person has indeed been vaccinated through the databases of the Department of Health and local governments. “Fake vaccination cards will not save you from COVID-19. Get yourselves vaccinated because it will be your best protection from severe complications brought by COVID-19,” said Cotabato City Mayor Cynthia Guiani.
