Each of us wants our child to become healthy always. This time, I would like to share to all of you the happenings yesterday here in our Barangay health Center. The said Health sector was decided to take and do an activity just like vaccination program to all children age 6 months to 1 year. This will help to all children to avoid from any kinds of deseases just like Polio, Tipdas and other kinds of serious illnesses. This is one of the parts of the Health Department programs and the official of Health sector ordered their members to do the important tasks- by vaccination. 7 AM yesterday, the Parents along with their children was started to arrived and they wait in designated areas and benches. The Barangay Health Workers also assisted all Parents very well and the Parents were very thankful to them.
The utility personel of the said Health station was doing the best to clean up the surroundings and put some chairs on the place, so that the people can sit while waiting for the Doctors and midwife to arrived. This is my baby daughter named, Irisha and she was also on going vaccination. The girl wearing with white tshirt is my mother and she also work as a Barangay Health workers in the health center. My Mother was playing to my baby daughter to make my baby daughter comfortable.
The main missions of the Health sector was to protect the kids from different kinds of illness and deseases. This is very important to all of us here in our town and aside for that, the services is free including the medicines and vaccines. The Rural Health Unit of Manticao, Misamis Oriental done this every Friday and free checkup and Pre-natal every tuesday. To avoid of being over crowded, they decided to put and build the so called, Barangay Health Station so that the people will be divided into two place and to give an immediate attentions regarding with their health problems.
My Baby daughter seems very excited about the vaccination without her knowing what vaccination it was. We tried to comforted her and played with her while waiting for the doctors and midwife to arrived. The residents are slowly arrived in the place together with their children. Other BHWs are already arrived they also assisted them on what to do when the doctors arrived.
Exactly 9 AM when they started to vaccine all children in the town. As I observed, all children were crying during their vaccination and luckily there are Barangay Health Workers who willingly to comfort all children. After the vaccination, the Health Personels was very thankful to all Parents for their trust given to them. This is very important and to help the children for their protections about health matters.
Each children who are already vaccinated was already have a medical record of the Health Center. This is very helpful so that the children will have their free medicines and services in times of health matters. The hard works and dedications including the missions and visions if the health sector was very worth it. It can saves lives of many people especially the children.
