BAGUIO CITY -- The City Health Services Office (CHSO) is prepared to conduct mobile vaccination operations in workplaces, communities, places of convergence and even in events.
    This is in line with the directive of
    Mayor Benjamin Magalong to ramp up booster rollout in the city in compliance with the call President Bongbong Marcos for leveling up of booster accomplishment nationwide.
    Companies, barangays, organizers and residents wishing to avail of vaccination services may contact the nearest district health centers for scheduling and coordination.
    City Health Services Officer Dr. Rowena Galpo said this is among the CHSO's strategies to beef up booster dispensation in the city.
    The city has overshot the national target for primary dosage but has yet to improve on the accomplishment of targets on first and second boosters.
    The Dept. of Health has just expanded the coverage of booster dosage to those aged 50 years old and up and to 18-49 with comorbidities.
    Last July 29, the office set up mobile vaccination center for city government employees and willing clients.        ***
    City Hall plans to level up interior design of its offices to make them more functional and suitable to the needs of both the employees and the transacting public.
    “As with other projects like the parks and barangay halls, we should have upgraded standards for our offices not only for aesthetical purposes but also for functionality,” Mayor Magalong said.
    The City Administrator's Office refurbished in 2021 now serves as a model for office renovation and fit-outing (finishing) for other City Hall offices. 
    It features modernized interior design that mirrors that of a corporate setting.  The layout also suits the new normal requirements for a safe workplace.
    City Administrator Bonifacio Dela Peña said the materials used were stylish but economical including the cost-effective lighting fixtures. 
    The design included small details like the provision of a built-in box to secure cables and wires for neatness and organization. 
    Dela Peña said renovations of offices are done based on prioritization due to limited budget.
    After the City Administrator’s Office, other offices urgently needing upgrading will follow based on available finances.
    Renovation however will be confined to the interior and will not cover the facade since City Hall building is a structure of historical significance mandated to be preserved, Dela Peña said.
    The Baguio City Police Office under Col. Glenn Lonogan proved that crime fighters can also be champions of the environment by initiating the recent July Junk Couture Contest as part of the Baguio Fashion Week celebration.
     The BCPO partnered with Old Baguio Café, OTOP Philippines Hub Cordillera powered by Wilvy Shows Entertainment Productions and with the special participation of KALIPI Women’s Organization led by president Lolit Castro and different barangays.
    The activity was more than a simple competition as the participants expressed their creativity and resourcefulness through the use of recycled materials in their fashion creations.
    The show promoted environmental sustainability hoping to inspire other fashion designers and other professionals in the field to develop, create and display high-end couture made from rubbish and discarded objects.
    Lt. Col. Judy Jasmin Palicos, BCPO Community Affairs and Development chief, P Maj. Maila Alog, Police Station 6 commander and Mr. Ricmar Agas, featured designer of Ibadum from La Union, served as the contest's on-site judges.
    Marissa Bomogao, featured designer of MB Collections and Julie Vergara, featured designer of Julies Creation were also present.
    The event is a part of the Aurora Hill Police Station's 27th PCR Month Celebration.
