Stop the scare, educate parents about vaccines – Gordon
Senator Richard Gordon has called for an intensified information drive on the importance of vaccines to protect children from diseases.
Gordon made the call following reports of a measles outbreak in Metro Manila amid the low vaccine coverage because of the Dengvaxia scare.
“Let’s stop the scare and rather educate the parents, families, & communities the importance of vaccination for our children’s sake,” he tweeted.
“I’ve said this a long time ago, hindi masama ang bakuna na kabilang sa Expanded Program on Immunization. Let’s not put vaccination into a bad light,” he said.
