THE DEPARTMENT of Education has launched the Vacc2School: Ligtas na Bakuna, Para sa Balik-Eskwela! campaign to support the government’s vaccination drive against the coronavirus disease.

Vacc2School campaign aims to inform, educate and engage stakeholders in promoting the vaccination drive and other related policies to mitigate Covid19.

It was contextualized to support the BIDA Solusyon Plus sa Covid19 campaign of the Department of Health in the education sector.

“I am encouraging everyone, especially the teachers, and other education personnel to participate in this campaign, and make informed decisions on vaccination to further intensify and advance our chances of safely returning to school,” Education Secretary Leonor Briones said.

“We would like to encourage our teachers to vaccinate themselves because it is not only a matter of protecting your personal rights, it is also a matter of protecting the lives and health of children which is also entrusted to our care,” she added.

DepEd will participate in three levels — as recipients or beneficiaries of the vaccine, as members of the different task group on vaccination, and as champions for advocacy of the immunization program.

Various materials will be launched throughout the campaign to maximize available platforms in communicating its objectives.

The Education department also created a microsite to serve as a repository of memoranda, aide-memoire, infographics, and other data in line with the campaign that may be accessed through
