This short video, shown as a #throwback social media content to drum up the World Immunization Week 2019 celebration, describes the success of vaccination in eradicating polio. The video is told in the point-of-view of the Philippines context. The Philippines was certified polio-free since year 2000, yet the threat of this paralyzing disease still remains. As long as poliovirus transmission happens elsewhere in the world, all other children remain at risk. The video calls that all children in communities should complete their polio vaccines.
This short video, shown as a #throwback social media content to drum up the World Immunization Week 2019 celebration, describes the success of vaccination in the global eradication of smallpox. It features a piece of public health history in the Philippines, when the smallpox vaccines first arrived in the country during the Spanish colonial period. Through a global vaccination programme, smallpox was officially declared as eradicated in 1979.
Filipinos have a penchant for singing and dancing, hence the education-entertainment approach was used in communicating key themes on immunization. The Department of Health in the Philippines, with support from the World Health Organization, produced the following music videos for the Back to Bakuna (Back to Vaccines) campaign in 2017: Bakwagon (a word play on Bakuna/Vaccine and wagon), a public service announcement aired on TV and radio Baby Come Bak (Baby Come Back), on convincing parents and caregivers to complete their baby's vaccination Limang Bisita (Five Visits), on the schedule of immunization visits May Bakuna para D'yan (There's a Vacccine for That), on vaccines and diseases they prevent Okay Kay Baby (Okay for Baby), on vaccine safety. This music video is not included in the playlist but is exclusively played at health facilities. The music videos are being played at waiting areas of health centers, to supplement the information needs of parents and caregivers while they wait for their child to be vaccinated.
