Las Piñas City strengthens senior health with pneumonia vaccination drive

In a significant move to safeguard the health of its senior citizens, the City Health Office of Las Piñas conducted another free pneumonia vaccination drive on Friday, January 26th. The event, which was held at the CAA events place in Barangay CAA BF International, successfully catered to over 800 senior citizens, highlighting the city's public health initiatives.


The vaccination drive is part of the city's ongoing efforts to protect its elderly population, who are particularly vulnerable to respiratory diseases like pneumonia. This initiative is especially crucial as pneumonia remains one of the leading causes of illness and death among senior citizens in the Philippines.


City Vice Mayor April Aguilar, who graced the event, emphasized the local government's commitment to the health and well-being of its senior residents. This initiative is in line with the city's broader health strategy, which focuses on preventive care and improving access to medical services for all residents.


The success of the vaccination drive in Almanza Dos and Pamplona Tres reflects the strong commitment of Las Piñas City to public health, particularly in addressing the needs of its senior population. This initiative underscores the city's dedication to ensuring accessible healthcare for all its residents, with a special focus on preventive measures.
