Newcastle disease (NCD) can infect a wide variety of birds and thus can be prevented through a vaccine. The study was conducted to know the perception of the beneficiary farmers on the Newcastle disease (NCD) vaccine distributed by the Department of Agriculture RFO-7 – Regional Vaccine Production Laboratory (DA7– RVPL) to poultry raisers in Siquijor province during the calendar year 2020. The lists of respondents were acquired from the Office of the Provincial Veterinarian (OPV) and the respective Municipal Agriculture Office (MAO). The scope of the study involves all the 6 municipalities of Siquijor province — Larena, Enrique Villanueva, Maria, Lazi, San Juan, and Siquijor.  The 28 respondents chosen by OPV and MAOs completed a questionnaire that focused on basic information about the poultry raiser, their housing management practices, and their health and disease prevention management practices. These respondents are the beneficiaries of the free NCD vaccines from DA – RVPL. Most of the NCD vaccinated birds are gamefowls comprising 72% of the total flocks owned by the respondents followed by native chickens, breeders, and layers. All of the respondents claimed that the NCD vaccine is effective and that no bird mortality was reported by 93% of the respondents after NCD vaccination. Although there are no NCD cases in Siquijor province, there is still a need to improve the awareness of the poultry raisers regarding the said disease such as proper housing management and biosecurity. A combination of proper hygiene and vaccination programs is important to further prevent possible NCD transmissions.
