The Department of Health’s MIMAROPA division has placed 9 recipients of the Dengvaxia vaccine in Palawan under strict monitoring.

This comes after DOH-Mimaropa successfully located the nine Palawan residents. One was found in Taytay and the rest were located in Puerto Prinsesa.

“They are closely being monitored and are being supported in all of their health-seeking needs 24/7,” Janairo said.

As of March 23, the Regional Epidemiological Surveillance Unit (RESU), in coordination with the provincial health offices, identified a total of 121 DVIs in Mimaropa.

Mimaropa covers the provinces of Occidental and Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon and Palawan.

Most recipients were from Occidental Mindoro with 58; Oriental Mindoro (34); Marinduque (13); Romblon (7); and Palawan (9) — one from Taytay and eight from Puerto Princesa City.

Six admissions were recorded after the patients experienced headache, fever, colds and vesicular rashes, but were later discharged.

Janairo said most DVIs received the vaccine from private clinics and hospitals, and government schools in Calabarzon, and in the National Capital Region in 2016.

“One identified DVI was vaccinated in 2012,” he said in the statement.

“We are continuously coordinating, gathering and collecting data from physicians in the provinces, who have administered Dengvaxia to children ages nine years and above, and are ready to provide immediate medical assistance when the need arises,” Janairo added.
