DOH: Ligtas Tigdas on Extended Run 1
Have you been to your local health centers? Last May 6 Friday, I tagged along my 4-year old daughter to check on the Department of Health [DOH] health program this summer regarding “Iligas sa Tigdas ang Pinas” campaign given thru community’s health center. We avail the vaccination through Bagong Pag-asa Health Center, District 1, Quezon City. It is our second time to visit the center, the first time we were here was when we had Chickenpox Vaccination another project of DOH last July 2008.

“Iligas sa Tigdas ang Pinas” is a door-to-door free Measles-Rubella [MR] Immunization Campaign targeting all children 9 months to below 8 years old [7 years old & 11 months to be exact]. Campaign runs from April 4 to May 4, 2011. We were lucky they extended it until May 6. My kid got her primary dose of measles vaccine last November 2007 thru a private pediatrician. We are glad and thankful knowing our government set up a project like this once in a while wherein everybody benefits from it especially when our kid’s health matter is concern.

They didn’t literary goes door-to-door to offer the free service, parents need to bring their kid to their area or Barangay health center to avail the free immunization. Once done, the health workers will give you a Vaccination Card for you to keep your records and a sticker to be posted outside your house premises indicating the date and number of vaccine taken. The heath worker also reminded us how significant the vaccination card was, particularly when traveling outside the country.

If your child doesn’t have a measles booster yet, make an effort to contact your community health center,  I believe the program is still extended.
