The Municipality of San Jose de Buenavista joined the Nationwide School-based Immunization last August 2, 2016. Three vaccines were introduced during the activity: Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR), Tetanus Diptheria (Td) and HPV.All School children in Grade 1 and Grade 7 were vaccinated with appropriate vaccines as specified.
Mayor Elmer C. Untaran witnessed the immunization at Atabay Elementary School and were part of the ceremonial injection during the program.
The conduct of the Nationwide School-based Immunization was due to the increasing demand of the catch-up immunization among the less priority areas.
