COTABATO CITY --- For the second day now since Monday, health workers and police teams continued administering anti-polio vaccines to children onboard vehicles at checkpoints in the city.

A big number of children were given oral anti-polio vaccines Monday in a joint vaccination drive by the Regional Police Office-Bangsamoro Autonomous Region, the Department of Health-12 and the City Health Office in keeping with the national government’s anti-polio campaign.
