‘Resbakuna sa Botika’ helps Bacolod’s vaccine campaign.
The opening of the “Resbakuna sa Botika” at the Mercury Drug Ayala Malls Capitol Central on Thursday gave the city government a boost in its coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) immunization program.
The effort primarily aims to provide booster injections to more Bacolod residents, who have already exceeded their immunization objective of 70% of the population, or 410,701 people, by 31%.
Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, who gave the booster shots to some of the vaccinees, stated that the government can no longer afford more lockdowns and that providing greater protection for Filipinos is critical.
“We can no longer afford to have many more unemployed individuals.” “What follows unemployment is hunger, which leads to greater illness,” he warned.
President Rodrigo Duterte sent him, together with Duque and Presidential Adviser for Covid-19 Response Vivencio Dizon, to deliver his message, according to National Task Force against Covid-19 lead implementer Secretary Carlito Galvez.
“We’d like to thank everyone in the local government and the commercial sector for joining together for this,” he said.
Dizon, who has visited the city and province several times throughout the epidemic over the past two years, said the difference this time is that the Covid-19 vaccine is now accessible.
He stated that while many people who were infected in the past were admitted to intensive care units (ICUs), this is no longer true and that if there are ICU cases, they are almost certainly individuals who have not been vaccinated.
“The facts are unmistakable. “The only way for us to survive is for everyone to get vaccinated,” he continued.
Secretary Michael Lloyd Dino was represented by the Office of the Presidential Adviser for the Visayas Undersecretary Anthony Gerard “Jonji” Gonzales of the Office of the Presidential Adviser for the Visayas.
Mayor Evelio Leonardia applauded the latest government initiative, which will allow the city to continue to distribute Covid-19 immunizations to more Bacolodnons.
The “Resbakuna sa Botika,” according to Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson, is another pioneering move in ensuring that scientific advances in the fight against Covid-19 reach the general people.
He advised Negrenses that there is no excuse not to get vaccinated now that vaccines are more widely available.
