CITY OF MALOLOS – The Provincial Government of Bulacan headed by Gov. Wilhelmino M. Sy-Alvarado and Vice Gov. Daniel Fernando and the Department of Health turned over 49 ice-lined vaccine refrigerators to different Rural Health Units (RHUs) in the province’s 21 municipalities yesterday afternoon.

With these, Bulakenyos will now have fast access to vaccines needed to cure dreaded diseases like dengue, hepatitis, polio, measles and other sickness.

Alvarado said that part of his administration’s trust is to improve medical facilities in the different health centers in Bulacan.

“Hindi na kailangan pang pumunta ng ating mga kalalawigan sa Provincial Health Office para makakuha ng vaccines. Mas mapapadali na ngayon ang pagkuha ng mga lunas sa mga sakit,’ the governor said.

He thanked the DOH for helping the province in boosting the delivery of quality health care and providing modern medical equipment in the different public health centers.

Alvarado also told Provincial Public Health Officer Dr. Joy Gomez to ensure that there will always be enough supplies of vaccines at any given time.

Fernando and Dr. Rommel Pajelo, president of the Association of Health Officers in Bulacan both said that aside from the 49 ice-lined vaccine refs there were several refrigerators already distributed to the different RHUs and health centers in the Cities of Malolos, Meycauayan and San Jose del Monte.

“Nagpapasalamat po kami ni governor sa DOH dahil napakahalaga nito sa mabilis na paglunas sa mga nakamamatay na sakit. Mabilis na ngayong makakakuha ng vaccines ang ating mga kalalawigan,” Fernando said.

The vice governor also added that providing quality health care and modern medical facilities is one of the seven point agenda of the administration of Alvarado.
