PAGADIAN CITY, 19 Nov. (PIA) – The Department of Health says cervical cancer can be prevented through human papillomavirus vaccination (HPV) which will be administered by DOH in all priority provinces nationwide to include the province of Zamboanga del Sur in Zamboanga peninsula.
Dr. Agnes E. Fernando, development management officer V, DOH Provincial Office said the vaccine will be given in two doses, specifically for 9 -10 year old girls.
“The first dose will be given this November 2015, and the second dose will be six months after, to be administered in May 2016,” Fernando said.
“HPV vaccination is most effective when given during childhood or adolescence or before sexual debut, when the risk of HPV infection is nil or at its lowest,”she explained.
Vaccination at a young age is also ideal because this is when the immune system is at its strongest and, therefore, will mount a robust response to the vaccine, according to Dr. Fernando.
HPV will be handled by health personnel at the health facilities only (city/rural health units) to ensure a comfortable room temperature and to carefully monitor the children for 15 minutes after the administration of the vaccine.
DOH officials also urged parents to have their children take their meal before the vaccination and ensure that those who received the first dose of HPV first dose this month shall be given the second dose by May next year.

He lauded the PRO9 for obtaining an overall rating of 93.33 with an equivalent adjectival rating of 4 best practices and 2 good practices during the compliant stage.
Although they obtained satisfactory grades from the national audit team, Delfin encouraged all PNP personnel to improve their performance. For the PNP to succeed and to attain its vision of making the entire police force as highly capable, effective and credible organization, they should double their efforts and improve their ratings.
The PNP personnel should exert more effort to attain a very satisfactory, if not outstanding grades, according to the police chief.
During the conference, the PGS evaluation process was presented by the audit team to monitor progress of implementation and execution of the program towards the attainment of its vision.
“The PGS, a framework of PNP’s Integrated Transformation Program (ITP) serves as a challenge for the entire police organization on how to address the missed opportunities and improve their performance,” Delfin explained.
Earlier, Delfin conducted an interview with the members of the Provincial Advisory Council (PAC) to determine how effective the PGS is to its internal and external stakeholders.
The PAC, chaired by Vice Governor Juan Regala acts as an oversight and advisory body with members representing oversight agencies, private sector, and key stakeholders.
