COVID19 Vaccination for OHNAP Members

Date: April 16, 2021

Dear OHNAP Members,

Last  March  22, 2021 ,  we made a letter of  appeal to Secretary  Francisco T.   Duque of DOH and General Carlito  Galvez, Jr of  National Task Force Against Covid-19 and Chief Implementer and Vaccine Czar regarding the  inclusion of the occupational health nurses in the priority A1 in the COVID - 19 vaccination being the primary medical frontliners   in our respective companies. The initiative was made through the effort of Mr. Raymond Papa, President of Olongapo Zambales Chapter. Fortunately we got a response from Dr. Razel Nikka M. Hao , MD,  OIC  -Director 111, Disease Prevention and Control Bureau of Department of Health. 

We would like to emphasized the following in her response:

With regards to your concern, we would like to confirm that members of OHNAP, provided that he/she is a company nurse may be considered as A1: Frontline workers in health facilities both national and local, private and public, health professionals and non-professionals like students in health and allied professions courses with clinical responsibilities, nursing aides, janitors, barangay health workers, etc.

May we recommend that your members or chapters coordinate with their LGUs for inclusion in the Master Listing.
