From a vaccine store to an immunized child

The journey of a vaccine

The Bohol Provincial Health Office plays a critical role in the efforts to restore and maintain the cold chain. This provincial office orders, receives and manages the distribution of the vaccines and the supplies needed to support the cold chain throughout the island. The Department of Health Material Management Division coordinates with the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine in Metro Manila to bring these vaccines through the cold chain via two local commercial airlines.
