Webinar #52 “NALILITO PA RIN AKO: FAQs on COVID-19 Vaccination”

Special Topic
Vaccine hesitancy is still a barrier to achieving better control of the spread of SARSCoV2 in the Philippines. While this is not unique to our country, the questions and doubts need to be continuously addressed. There are still many who feel ambivalent. Seniors doubt whether they really need a vaccine if they are just staying at home. Others don’t know where to go for vaccination. There are debates about the brands and their safety. Some have received one shot and want to switch to another brand. Some are still concerned about allergies and adverse reactions. Let us talk about all of these issues.

Why are many still confused about vaccination? Maybe it is the lack of information? Maybe it is misinformation? Maybe it is conflicting information. Maybe it is because this information is constantly changing as science tries to catch up with different aspects of vaccination and the pandemic as a whole.

In this week’s episode of STOP COVID DEATHS, the discussion will be fully focused on questions from the audience. So, this is the opportunity to ask your questions on COVID-19 vaccination or to find ways of framing your response to frequently asked questions on vaccination. DOH Director for Knowledge and Information Technology Systems Dr. Eric Tayag, will provide a brief overview on causes of confusion about vaccination. Dr. Ted Herbosa, Special Adviser of the National COVID-19 Task Force and Dr. Anna Ong-Lim, infectious disease specialist at the UP PGH will serve on the panel of discussants. Dr. Nina Gloriani, Lead of the Vaccine Expert Panel and Former Dean of the UP College of Public Health will open the meeting. Closing Remarks will be done by UP College of Medicine Dean, Dr. Charlotte M. Chiong.

Stay Safe. Stay Healthy. Stay Connected.
