IMUS CITY, Cavite – The Imus local government has lowered, endorsed their vaccination drive to barangay health centers to intensify their inoculation program in the city, Monday, March 21, 2022.

Based on the post of Imus City Mayor and Buklod Filipino Party-list 1st nominee Emmanuel Maliksi on his official social media page, children aged 5 to 11 can be vaccinated at the nearest barangay health center in their area.

Dr. Mina encouraged the parents to pre-register their children for vaccination for the extra layer of protection against COVID-19.

“Huwag nang magpahuli mga kapwa ko magulang, agad ng iparehistro ang ating anak para sa bakunahan. This is the best protection for them against hospitalization caused by severe and critical symptoms of COVID-19,” Mina stated.
