The national government launched pediatric vaccination
for children ages 5-11 years old last February 14.
An estimate of a hundred children have received their first doses of vaccination as the Emergency Operations Center-Task Force (EOC-TF) started to launch the said vaccination drive.
Two hospitals, the Riverside Medical Center and Bacolod Queen of Mercy Hospital are the designated areas for the vaccination of the little kids accompanied by their parents. The Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital or CLMMRH was another area for launching the vaccination.
Still, the hospital chief and the hospital management decided to move it to a later date on the 17th and 18th of February, accommodating only registered children. 
The City Health Office is also one of the venues for pediatric vaccination and the top hospitals in Bacolod City.
On February 21, vaccination shall also be available at SM City Bacolod.
Executive director of EOC-TF, Em Ang, said that the vaccination of children is also in preparation for the anticipated face-to-face classes.
The Teresita L. Jalandoni Provincial Hospital in Silay also hosted a vaccination drive for the kids, decorating the area with standees of superheroes and balloons. The kids got their vaccination doses successfully while enjoying eating cotton candy and ice cream.
10,000 Pfizer vaccines arrived in Bacolod City, and 15,000 vaccines for Negros Occidental. These vaccine doses were used to inoculate the children during the vaccination drive.
While children got vaxxed, it is also noted that last February 10 and 11, the Provincial Health Office reported a total of 30,945 Negrenses that have received their vaccination doses during the two-day nationwide mass vaccination drive in Negros Occidental.
