MORE THAN 50% OF KIANGAN TARGET POPULATION VAXXED

The municipality of Kiangan in Ifugao has already vaccinated more than half of its target population, attributing the accomplishment to the conduct of home vaccination.

Kiangan Mayor Raldis Andrei Bulayungan said they did home vaccination when visits have been allowed.

“We brought the vaccination to the grassroots which is a program to bring government programs closer to the people,” Bulayungan stressed.

The mayor said talking and explaining to the residents the benefits of vaccination also contributed in the town’s vaccination accomplishment.

Apart from home visits for vaccination, the local health office is also maximizing the use of social media in disseminating the appropriate information about the benefits of having vaccinated and the jab schedule.

“We should start among us so that we can convince our families, employees and they, in turn, will be able to convince their relatives, our relatives, and friends,” he concluded.
