New Barili in coordination with the Rural Health Unit of Tampilisan celebrates "WORLD IMMUNIZATION WEEK"! Since the advent of vaccination, infant mortaliy rate, among others, have gone down by a significant rate. Vaccinations save over 2-3 million lives every year around the world. #VaccinesWork 💉👍🏻 🌎
Mothers from New Barili along with their children came to receive various vaccines included in the EPI program of the DOH. At the same time, additional NB nutricard were given to monitor the weight of all children 5 years and below.
Also recognizing the inclusion of EXCLUSIVE BREASTFEEDING in the 1st 1000 DAYS of a child, TEAM NB continued the tracking of exclusively breastfeeding mothers in the community.
This can be realized and made sustainable thanks to the tireless effort of the Rural Health Unit, our very energetic NDP Ma’am Mary Cris Lagare and forever active BHWs Ma’am Maricel and Ma’am Alice.
This #WorldImmunizationWeek, help us spread the word: #VaccinesWork! 💉👍🏻 🌎
