Dalawang Ex-DOH Secretary, Nagturuan Sa Dengvaxia Anomaly!


The former Secretary of the Department of Health (DOH) said President Aquino has approved the purchase of P3.5-billion worth of Dengvaxia anti-dengue vaccine which is all harmful to the patient.

In the fifth session of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee, former Health Sec. Enrique Onna that if he was the secretary at the time of approving the purchase of Dengvaxia, she would not allow it.

“Kung ako ang kalihim posibleng hindi maaprubahan ang proyektong pagbabakuna ng Dengvaxia sa mga mag-aaral,” said Onna.



However, former Secretary Janette Garin promptly denounced Onna's accusation because he approved the purchase of Dengvaxia when she (Garin) was the undersecretary of DOH during Onna's day.

During the hearing, Onna admitted that when she was appointed as the secretary of the DOH in 2010, the number of patients dengue was hit by the country.

He said that based on the report, more than 100,000 people were hit by the Dengue annually.

But in spite of this, they are still looking at what kind of vaccine will be used for the safety of children, especially youth.



Onna admitted that there was not enough funding for the dengue vaccine during his term. But if there is any funding it will definitely not allow the Dengvaxia vaccine to be owned by Sanofi Pastuer because they are thoroughly analyzing what it can impact the young students to be able to speak.

Onna served as DOH secretary from 2010 to December 2014 during the Aquino administration replaced by former Sec. Jannette Garin.



Meanwhile, Garin denied that Onna was involved in the procurement of the Dengvaxia vaccine belonging to Sanofi Pastuer. At the hearing, Garin denounced Onna's statement that it has nothing to do with the approval of the anti-dengue vaccine.

According to Garin, Onna is not telling the truth because back when she was the undersecretary, she made a presentation in July 2014 and September 2014 to Secretary Onna on the Dengvaxia vaccine.

Guarin further revealed that Onna liked and praised them, in fact, Onna was the one holding photos of her presentation.
