In compliance to the directive of Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, the Chairperson of the City’s Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases, the Pulantubig gymnasium has been identified and prepared as one of the vaccination sites for the upcoming mass COVID-19 immunization.
City Health Officer Dr. Maria Sarah B. Talla led several personnel in the preparation of the Pulantubig vaccination post, one of the 8 vaccination sites for the city, so that it will comply with the minimum health standards with complete equipment for disinfection and sanitation.
A vaccination post must have adequate space for waiting area, registration, pre-vaccination counseling and final consent, screening, vaccination and post-vaccination monitoring and surveillance.
Accordingly, each vaccination team assigned in the post shall have a physician, nurse or midwife who will be in charge of screening and assessment; one allied professional or volunteer for health education; a doctor, nurse, or midwife who will vaccinate; and two health workers or volunteers from partner agencies who will be tasked for documentation and taking of vital signs.
