“Health professionals on Wednesday called on government to offer free anti-pneumonia vaccines to children to pull the country out of the list of the top 10 countries with the highest child pneumonia cases.
“If only we can include this vaccine in the National Immunization Program, many infants would be saved,” Dr. Lulu Bravo of the National Institutes of Health said in a forum organized by the Philippine College of Physicians to mark World Pneumonia Day on Nov. 2.”
