DOH set up health stations for May polls
by Carlito C. Dar / PIA

The Department of Health will set up health stations in areas identified by the Commission on Elections as priority polling precincts in the region to ensure that the health needs of voters and election workers for the May 13 midterm elections are immediately attended to.

DOH-Cordillera OIC Director Amelita Pangilinan said 84 health stations will be set up in the region to be supervised by a team of four to five nurses each from the Nurses Deployment Program.

These health stations will ensure that voters and government personnel and volunteers performing election-related duties have ready access to free basic first aid assistance, essential medicines, and emergency medical services, Pangilinan said.

With the hot weather and the expected long queues of voters, the Health department warned the public against dehydration, dizziness, heat exhaustion/stroke, and increase in blood pressure.

To avoid such conditions, the DOH advised the public to eat a full meal before going to the voting places and to bring their own snacks and drinking water.

Wearing loose and comfortable clothes can also help and people should also bring umbrella, wide-brimmed hat, and fans, Pangilinan said.

The DOH reminds  people with medical conditions to take their maintenance medicine before proceeding to the voting centers.

As much as possible, parents should avoid bringing children to voting places.

The voting period will be from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

There will be emergency accessible polling places for persons with disability, senior citizens, and pregnant voters.
