 WELCOME MESSAGE

City Mayor of Valencia City

Greetings!
As my call to serve and lead the people of the City of Valencia, it is a challenge for me to make the city more progressive. First and foremost, to be able to attain it, I ensure that the employees of the City Government of Valencia serve the people in excellence as true public servants.
Among the many steps I took during my administration, I am encouraged to create a functional website to foster transparency. It is a tool to provide better services to all sectors in the community and it will also encourage public participation. The ultimate aim of this website is that eventually it will become a channel to facilitate business transactions efficiently using secured electronic payment systems.
It is with great pleasure to welcome you all to the official website of the City of Valencia. Feel free to browse and may it answer specific need of all users.
Thank you.

The City Government of Valencia through the City Health Office joins the National School-based Immunization Program of the Department of Health from August 4-September 2, 2015 to give students immunity against tetanus, diphtheria and measles.

Dr. Marlyn V. Agbayani, the City Health Officer of Valencia City said that the school-based program is one of the innovations and strategies of Department of Health to help protect children from tetanus, diphtheria and measles. She also said that booster doses of tetanus, diphtheria, measles and rubella will be provided to all grade one pupils and all first year high school students or grade seven students.

Ms. Pinky Marie Logramonte, RN, the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) Sub-Coordinator further explained that the NDPs (Nurse Deployment Program of DOH) together with the DepEd Nurses and Rural Health Midwives also have important roles in the immunization program. The DepEd nurses screened the records of the children and they also facilitate the signing of waivers for the parents’ consent.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), tetanus is acquired when the spores of the bacterium Clostridium Tetani infect a wound or a newborn's umbilical stump. A childhood immunization schedule of five doses is recommended. The primary series of three doses of DTP (DTwP or DTaP) should be given in infancy, with a booster dose of a tetanus toxoid containing vaccine ideally at age 4–7 years and another booster in adolescence at age 12–15 years.

According to Ms. Gloria P. Sitoy, Health Education and Promotion Officer of the City Health Office, they will be catering to 56 Elementary Schools with a total of 4, 807 Grade 1 pupils and 11 Public Secondary Schools with 2,476 students in the whole City of Valencia.

“The injection sites of the two shots are on the left arm for the tetanus toxoid and diphtheria while the vaccine for measles and rubella is injected on the right arm.” The vaccines and logistics are provided by the Department of Health, while the administration is given by the City Health Personnel. “We are very thankful for the full support of our City Mayor Hon. Azucena P. Huervas in the programs of the department and we are requesting the parents to cooperate and have their children immunized for the children can benefit from this program,” She added.

The implementation of the school-based immunization program is conducted nationwide throughout the whole month of August.
