Nilinaw ni Health Secretary Francisco Duque na hindi dengvaxia ang nagdudulot ng sakit sa mga nabakunahan nito.
Ipinaliwanag ng kalihim na kagat pa rin ng lamok na nagtataglay ng sakit na dengue magdudulot ng sakit sa isang taon.
So, it is not the dengvaxia itself that creates the problem.
It’s when after the immunization has been done and a mosquito that carries the dengue bites the child and that’s when, they observe severe dengue symptoms.
Nilinaw din ni Duque na proteksyon sa apat na strain ng dengue ang dapat na ibinibigay ng bakuna na hindi kaya aniya ng vaccine na dengvaxia.
‘Pagka… nagkaroon kayo ng dengue at hindi naman kayo nabakunahan, ang katawan ninyo siya mismong gagawa ng pamamaraan upang mailigtis kayo sa future exposure to the same stray by developing your anti – bodies to strain one kung ‘yun ang nakapag – infect, ang nagbigay ng sakit sainyo.
The problem there, you develop lifetime immunity to strain one, once you have prior exposure but not to two, three and four.
The logic behind the vaccination is precisely to cover you, to protect you from strains two, three and four.
The problem however, is that, dengvaxia has been shown not to provide 100% or 90% efficacy or protection.
Dengvaxia ‘di dapat binigay sa malaking bilang ng mga tao
Hindi dapat ibinigay ang dengvaxia sa malaking bilang ng mga tao.
Ayon sa Health Reform Advocate na si Dr. Anthony Leachon, ito ay upang mas maging madali ang pagmonitor sa mga nabakunahan at magiging madali din ang pagkontrol sakaling magkaroon man ng masamang epekto ang bakuna.
Matatandaang mahigit walongdaang libong (800,000) bata ang binakunahan ng dengvaxia na mula sa Central Luzon, CALABARZON, Metro Manila at Cebu.
Because there is a certain medication during the launch in which they may actually be the risk benefit ratio is okay, the benefits would upgrade the risk but… if there are red flags or safety alerts, then, the FDA and the manufacturers should alert right now.
So, when we went to the Department of Health (DOH), based on this particular signal, we told them that not to lose his on wide scale but scale down because this is a prescription base and those neurological tests first before actually relaunching it.
Because it is a logistical nightmare considering the absence or act of medically care access in the country side.

Sinang – ayunan din ito ni dating Health Secretary Paulyn Ubial.
Once upon a time, was an expanded program on immunization program manager, I headed the polio eradication unit, so, I have that background that when we introduce new vaccines, you don’t introduce it to one million subjects.
We introduce it slowly. The most number of subjects that you introduce it is around 40,000 subjects.
