Selected LGU-Camalig department heads and members of the Local Task Force for Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccine Deployment (LTFCVD) have convened today in preparation for the upcoming municipal-wide COVID-19 vaccination.
 
The meeting mainly focused in LTFCVD’s macroplan including finalization of budgetary requirements, designation of teams, procurement of necessary equipment, logistic demands, and other measures geared towards the attainment of a safe and successful vaccination rollout in the municipality.
 
To date, a total of one thousand and seventy-eight (1,078) frontline health workers have been enrolled in the Vaccine Information Management System (VIMS) – an online platform devised to accurately cover masterlisting and registration inputs regarding priority population/vaccinees.
 
The LTFCVD is also set to conduct a vaccine simulation once approval has been granted by the Department of Health (DOH).
 
LGU-Camalig eyes to implement a cluster-based vaccination in the barangays as compliance to the minimum public health standards and to provide convenience for the vaccinees – 14 vaccination sites have been identified to cater 45,000 of the targeted population.
 
As of March 11, 2021, Camalig has a total of 25 confirmed COVID-19 cases including 23 recoveries and 2 deaths – the municipality remains COVID-free for 19 consecutive days.
 
The LTFCVD convenes regularly to ensure that vaccine-related plans and programs are aligned with the vaccination plan of the Municipal Health Office (MHO) in support of the government’s National Vaccination Program.
