Bilang pagsuporta sa national vaccination program ng pamahalaan, inilunsad ng Department of Education (DepEd) ang “Vacc2School: Ligtas na Bakuna, Para sa Balik-Eskwela” campaign kahapon, Mayo 13.
Layon ng kampanyang ito na magbigay impormasyon at himukin ang mga teaching, non-teaching personnel, at iba pang stakeholders na palaganapin ang vaccination drive at suportahan ang iba pang polisiyang saklaw nito.
Ang kampanyang ito ay isinagawa bilang suporta sa BIDA Solusyon Plus sa COVID-19 campaign ng Department of Health.
Ani DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones, “I am encouraging everyone, especially the teachers, and other education personnel to participate in this campaign, and make informed decisions on vaccination to further intensify and advance our chances of safely returning to school.”
Kamakailan, inaprubahan ni Pangulong Rodrigo Duterte at ng Inter-Agency Task Force ang hiling ni Sec. Briones na isali ang mga guro sa Priority Group A4.
“We would like to encourage our teachers to vaccinate themselves because it is not only a matter of protecting your personal rights, it is also a matter of protecting the lives and health of children which is also entrusted to our care,” pahayag ni Sec. Briones.
Plano umano ng DepEd na mamigay ng iba’t ibang Vacc2School campaign information materials na ilulunsad sa iba’t ibang plataporma upang maiparating sa publiko ang layunin ng naturang kampanya.
