The Department of Health (DOH) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) are producing orders and guidelines to allow the 4th year medical students as vaccinators.
In an interview of CHED Chairperson J. Prospero de Vera III with DZBB, he clarified that these students as well as those who finished medical courses but are still waiting for licensure examination, can serve as vaccinators under guidance.
De Vera stated, “Maglalabas ng order at guidelines between CHED at DOH na papayagan nang mag-vaccinate ang mga 4th year student ng medicine at nursing at ‘yung mga nakatapos na ng medicine at nursing pero hindi pa nakakakuha ng exam… Maaari silang maging vaccinator under guidance…”
The collaboration of DOH and CHED aims to strengthen the capacity of vaccination of the country.
