Mayor Mel Aguilar and Vice Mayor April Aguilar led the launch of the new round of Sabayang Patak Kontra Polio recently at the Las Piñas City Hall Grounds.

The mass immunization campaign is a preventive measure and a move to ensure a polio-free Las Piñas City.

The new round of oral vaccination in Las Piñas started on January 27 up to February 9 and February 24 up to March 8, 2020. The Las Piñas City Health Office is mobilizing its trained personnel and all barangay health centers in implementing the city-wide mass vaccination.

Children below five years old (0-59 months) should be vaccinated to prevent the risk of having polio. According to the Department of Health (DOH), polio is an infectious disease, which can cause paralysis and on rare occasions may have fatal consequences. Polioviruses spread primarily through food, water and other objects contaminated with feces from an infected person. There is no cure for polio, but it can be prevented with vaccination.

Residents of Las Piñas may visit the nearest barangay health centers from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. to avail of the free vaccination. You may also inquire about the daily schedule of the door to door free vaccination drive from the City Health Office (Tel. No. 8-824-5764).
