Fact: The World Health Organization risk assessment for 2022-2023 showed that the Philippines is still considered at risk for polio outbreaks, with 24 out of 81 provinces considered high-risk.
The campaign on bivalent oral polio vaccine and routine immunization is to help ensure the protection of children against poliomyelitis (pagkalumpo).
