Teaching schoolkids to protect themselves from the dreaded dengue was the next step in Taguig City’s comprehensive work to address the spread of the disease.

On September 18, the city government distributed long socks to thousands of youngsters, in a bid to introduce “Self-Protection” measures to them. Self-Protection is an important component of the 4-S campaign which also includes “Search and destroy mosquito-breeding sites,” “Seek early consultation” and “Support fogging/spraying.”

The long socks went to more than 2,800 Daycare, Kinder and Grades 1-3 pupils at EM'S Signal Village Elementary School (ESVES). Some 1,575 female pupils enrolled in Grades 4-6 also received two pairs of high-knee socks each.

Starting with the ceremonial distribution in ESVES, the City will also distribute long socks to male and female enrollees from Daycare, Kinder and Grades 1-3 and female students from Grades 4 to 12 in all public elementary and high schools across the city. The initiative is spearheaded by the City Health Office and Local School Board.
