CPS says last week’s Vaccination Open House a huge success

GREAT BAY, Sint Maarten (DCOMM) – The Collective Prevention Services (CPS) says its Vaccination Open House last week Saturday was a huge success.

The Open House was held at the Vineyard Office Park in Philipsburg from 9.00am to 4.00pm for children between 0-17 years old.

115 young individuals visited the Open House with their parents/guardians; 15 were between the age 0-3; and 100 were between 4-17 years old.

Besides a temporary playground for while they awaited their turn, a presentation was held from 10.00am to 1.30pm on Puberty.

The attention is now preparing for the second Open House which is scheduled for Saturday, June 10. The presentation at this Open House will be Oral Health, Puberty, and Reproductive Health.

Vaccines help your immune system fight more than 20 dangerous diseases.  From the time we’re born, vaccines offer protection to help individuals stay healthy throughout their entire lives.

CPS, a department of the Ministry of Public Health, Social Development and Labour, held its Open House under the banner of the Vaccination Week of the Americas 2017.

Those who need additional information about the Open House can call CPS at 542-2078 or 542-3003.
