2017 Dengue Vaccine Schedule – Watsons Philippines

Dengue vaccine is now commercially available in the Philippines. Watsons will offer dengue vaccination in select stores nationwide. Here’s what you need to know about Dengue Vaccination:

1. The vaccine is safe and has been thoroughly tested, based on World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines

2. Dengue vaccine has been approved in 14 countries where dengue is endemic including Singapore, Mexico, Brazil and the Philippines.

3. The dengue vaccination, to be taken in three doses at 0 – 6 – 12 months interval, can protect the individual from all four strains of the dengue virus.

4. The vaccine can be administered to people aged 9 to 45 years old.

5. The first vaccine against dengue, Dengvaxia, was created by leading multinational pharmaceutical company and an expert in the development of vaccinations, Sanofi Pasteur.

2017 Dengue Vaccination Schedule at Watsons Philippines Stores

April 30, 2017  – 1st dose

October 29, 2017  – 2nd dose

April 29, 2018 – 3rd dose

If you miss the above vaccination schedule, you can avail the next round on the following dates:

May 14, 2017  – 1st dose

November 12, 2017 – 2nd dose

May 13, 2018 – 3rd dose

Even if you or your child already had dengue, you can still benefit from the vaccine that protects you from more than 1 strain of Dengue virus. My personal experience with Dengue was plagued with stress, anxiety, worry, and uncertainty. The up and down of platelet count is an emotional roller coaster that can make anyone believe they are in the brink of death. In some cases, Dengue can be fatal as we all know.

Cost of Dengue Vaccine in the Philippines

P4000 per dose at Watsons

P12000 for all 3 doses at Watsons

Note that you have to buy on the scheduled vaccination dates so that the dengue vaccine can be administered by a nurse to you or your loved ones. It is very important to finish all three (3) doses of the dengue vaccine.

How To Kiss Aging Goodbye at Watsons

Aging is a natural process and one that happens to everyone. While most would have a negative idea about aging, hence the term “anti-aging”, it is better to have a positive attitude about aging and aging gracefully. Do you agree?

For example, I appreciate beauty products more today than when I was younger. The best part is, if you are at the point of caring for anti-aging products now then you probably have more budget for beauty products today compared to when you were in high school or even in college!

I know friends who actually look better now that they are older. Reason is, they have tried and tested different products and have pin pointed the right skincare regimen and healthy lifestyle. Are you ready to kiss aging good bye too? The best place to do that is at Watsons and here’s why:

Shoppers who buy items with the special Kiss Aging Goodbye Sticker together with a minimum purchase of P500 automatically earn points and included in the e-raffle. A total of P1,000,000 shopping points will be given away! Don’t forget to present your SM Advantage, SM Prestige, BDO Rewards cards at the counter.

Anti-aging beauty products are also on sale during this promo period that runs until September.

The good news is, Watsons continue to increase their organic and all-natural beauty choices. Just look at the organic essential & beauty oils above.

If you are wanting to try the all naturals line of Watsons, as well as Collagen by Watsons then this is the best time to buy. Check out the discounts and the buy 2 take 1 offers.

I want to try this Collagen by Watsons BB cream. My skin is allergic to makeup and can only tolerate tinted sunblock or BB creams like this. Here is the back carton for the list of ingredients:

Mommy Lace tip: Based on experience, the best way to use BB cream is after washing your face, apply toner, moisturize, apply CC cream and finish with BB cream. The difference between CC cream and BB cream is that CC stands for color correcting cream. Most of the time, CC creams include anti-aging ingredients while BB cream of blemish balm cream contains sun block.


Watsons brand body wash, body scrub, lotions and more are also on sale and promo

Another important component of keeping your skin healthy and young looking is exfoliation. I am so naive that I only recently learned the importance of using scrubs twice a week, and for my face – once a week. This is because as we age, our skin needs help in removing dead skin cells that pile up and cause old-looking and clogged skin that cause pimples. Right now, I am using Watsons brand cocoa and shea butter body scrub which I got on a buy 2 take 1 free offer.

Moisturizing is another component of healthy skin. Aging makes our skin naturally drier and dry skin is more prone to all kinds of infection including acne. I found my current brand of body wash and lotion, Coco Line at Watsons in Podium. The brand uses all-natural ingredients especially virgin coconut oil that naturally moisturizes skin.

Remember to always have a positive attitude about aging, enjoy taking care of yourself and enjoy shopping great deals at Watsons ;)
