Adult vaccinees in Bataan will receive a monetary award.

BALANGA CITY. To persuade more inhabitants to get vaccinated against the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), the local government will offer monetary incentives to adults who take the first dosage or booster shot in designated locations beginning Monday.

Vaccinees aged 18 and above who obtain their doses at the Waltermart or Balanga Capitol Square malls, the public market, or at a mobile vaccination station in a community will receive PHP500.

“The incentive will be accessible for locals through March 24,” Anabella Abella, a nurse with the City Rural Health Unit, said in an interview.

She couldn’t clarify whether the increase in vaccinations at the Waltermart was due to the incentive, but she did note the number increased on Monday.

“As of 10:30 a.m., we had already vaccinated 45 people,” Abella said in an interview, “but in the preceding days, notably last week, there were only 25 people till 12 noon.”

Mary Joy Arguelles, a vaccinee, said the incentive was not a key factor in her decision.

“Dahil may anak akong maliit at ngayon lang ako available at hindi dahil sa PHP500 na ibibigay, ngayon lang ako nagpabakuna.” Maynila luluwas ako at hindi puwedeng sumakay ng bus ng walang bakuna (I have a child, and I have only recently been accessible for vaccination.) It has nothing to do with PHP500. I also need to go to Manila, and I won’t be able to go by bus if I’m not vaccinated),” Arguelles explained.

The monetary incentive, according to Mayor Francis Garcia, is intended to keep the number of Covid-19 cases low.

On Saturday, four new cases were added, bringing the total number of current cases to 23.
