(Ali Vicoy / Manila Bulletin File Photo) In a webinar titled “Omicron Truths and Myths, Pediatric COVID-19 vaccine news and the Journey to the New Normal” held on Tuesday, Jan. 25, health experts proved the effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines. “Naging mahirap para sa amin dahil since lahat kami nagkaroon ng sabay-sabay, naging mahirap ‘yung mobility para sa amin, naging mahirap yung movements,” he added. During the same webinar, Philippine Medical Association (PMA) president Dr. Currently there are 2,187,205 active cases in the country, with an increase of 73,840 during the period. Benny Atienza disclosed that their medical society urged the national government to conduct a “vaccination day for children” to ramp up the country’s inoculation drive amid the spike of infections.” (It was hard for us because we all got COVID-19 at the same time, our mobility was affected, movements were hard. “The PMA is suggesting to the DOH and IATF that there should be a National Children’s Vaccination Day to encourage the parents, the community, or their children to be vaccinated,” said Atienza. (The funds should be allocated for the purchase of vaccines.

Atienza added that the proposed vaccination day for children is important, especially among the age group of five to 11-year-olds, as well as the 12 to 18-year-olds, considering that only a small percentage of these age groups have been vaccinated against COVID-19.) Aside from his family and friends, Dantes also expressed his gratitude to the Office of the Vice President who sent them a care kit. Meanwhile, the country’s Omicron tally has reached 10,050. Meanwhile, the executive director of the Philippine Foundation for Vaccination (PFV) Dr. Lulu Bravo reiterated that the only way that the country could end this pandemic is through an all-out vaccination. “Isa rin sa mga mahalagang natanggap namin ay ‘yung COVID care package ng Office of the Vice President, so napakalaking bagay ‘non dahil naglalaman ng kumpletong mga gamit na kinakailangan ng isang COVID-positive patient,” he said. “Vaccination is the way for it. It is the way that we can end this pandemic… [it is] the immunity that we all deserve to get, not just from a previous infection, but from vaccination,” Bravo said.) Dantes then stressed that contracting the virus is not something to be ashamed about, while reminding the public to get vaccinated and be protected against the virus. It should be more efficient.

Bravo also recalled the worldwide pandemic that occurred in 1918. “Did you know that in the 1918 pandemic, at least 10 percent of the world’s population died from flu? We don’t want that to happen [again]. (This is how the surge has been, it has infected and is still infecting many, but let’s remember that it is neither a sin, nor a shame to have COVID because no matter how careful we are, the danger of contracting the virus is still out there. That’s the reason why vaccines are here to protect us,” she reiterated. . (So I think, we should still work harder to ensure that we are vaccinated, as well as given booster shots, because aside from the added protection these give, vaccines also prevent us from experiencing severe symptoms if we happen to contract the virus.
