·1 min read

THE Mandaue City Management Information Systems Office (Miso) will start sending its personnel to barangays by next week to orient them on the procedure for the electronic immunization registration.

Ernie Manatad, chairman of the Mandaue City Vaccine Board and president of the Association of Barangay Captains, said the Miso has finalized the city’s electronic immunization registration software.

Miso personnel headed by Krister Cosedo have attended an orientation training conducted by the Department of Health (DOH) 7 on the Covid-19 vaccination registration program.

Manatad said they are identifying implementing units in vaccination posts, the number of personnel per vaccination team and composite teams and personnel needed for the vaccination campaign.

He said they need 500 to 700 people to execute their vaccination plans from pre-vaccination to post-vaccination.

Manatad also said they find the logistics critical as the vaccines must be retrieved and transported carefully to the cold storage.

The Mandaue City Government has prepared P200 million to procure vaccines as a complement to the vaccines to be provided by the national government. / KFD
