This is under the leadership of Mayor Imelda Aguilar and Vice Mayor April Aguilar, and the supervision of the City Health Office.

The distribution of free oral polio vaccines for 250 daycare students was held at the TS Cruz Covered Court in Barangay Almanza Dos in the city. The other 300 students received such at Saint Joseph Subdivision Covered Court in Barangay Pulanglupa Dos.
