By Al Jazeera’s Daniel Dominguez and Anurag SrivastavaThe concrete operational mission is an important step towards achieving the operational definition.
The objective is to reduce the number of COVID cases in the area, and to reduce costs.
The mission is currently underway in Nampo, a small town on the west coast of Java.
The concrete operation aims to be one of the largest concrete operations in the country, as it has a capacity of more than 5,000 square metres.
It is a one-stop shop for COVID vaccines delivered to homes, schools, health centres and government buildings.
The operation is being run by the Philippine Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (PCDP) and the Philippine National Institute of Health Sciences (PNIMS).PCDP Director and Chief Operating Officer Antonio Guilido said the concrete operation has already proven itself to be a cost-effective, safe, efficient and effective COVID prevention tool.
“It has been proven to be effective, safe and effective,” Guilidos said.
“It is being implemented across all of the affected areas.
It has been demonstrated that the effectiveness is based on the efficacy of the vaccine and the time and the cost of administering the vaccine.
The concrete operation is the best method to reduce COVID transmission in the region.”
The concrete operations aim to vaccinate at least 3,000 homes in the community each day.
They will be accompanied by a vaccination centre staffed with local health workers, who will provide vaccinations to people in need, and a vaccination station for people who are sick.
The community will be kept informed about the operation and the COID surveillance network, and will be given the opportunity to register with the government, Guilida said.
In the case of the PNP, it is the PDP that manages the concrete operations.
The PDP is a partner with the National Health Insurance Corp of the Philippines (NHICP) and will provide a vaccine delivery vehicle.
The PNP will be coordinating the operation with the Joint Integrated National Action Plan on COVID control (JINAC), the National Polio Eradication Plan (NPEP), and the National Action Planning Coordination Program (NPAPC).
In a statement, the PPD said the operation is designed to vaccinating about 500,000 households every day in the Pampanga region.
The operation will also be administered by the Health and Scientific Services Department (HSSD) and PNP at the Joint Operations Centre (JOC).
“The concrete-operational deployment is part of the national effort to reduce infection and prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-2),” PPD Deputy Director General Joaquin Camarillo said.
