Starting November 17, fully immunized health care workers can receive their third dosage or booster…
NegOcc college students are recommended to receive booster Covid-19 shots.
College students in Negros Occidental have been urged by Commission on Higher Education (CHED) Chairperson J. Prospero De Vera III to get booster shots as the “greatest investment” to avoid the coronavirus sickness in 2019. (Covid-19).
De Vera observed the PinasLakas ceremonial booster vaccination for students of state and local universities and colleges, as well as private tertiary institutions, in separate events held at the Bacolod City College and University of Negros Occidental-Recoletos campuses here on Monday afternoon, ahead of the CHED’s three-day national directorate meeting, which began on Tuesday.
“I’m pleading with everyone to get their booster shots. He stated that the best investment you can make is for your friends, classmates, family, and everyone else in your immediate vicinity.
De Vera, a senior who tested positive for Covid-19 twice, claimed that he is living proof that vaccinations are effective.
He emphasized that school-based immunization is practiced since it is simple to monitor since schools already have a list of children.
Every week, schools can inform CHED of their immunization status. We can keep an eye on the percentage’s growth, he continued.
De Vera continued by saying that 77 percent of national students at tertiary schools had already received their first two doses, compared to nearly 90 percent of teaching members and administrators.
“That is because everybody contributed to being immunized. I issued a decree mandating that face-to-face instruction be available in all schools in November 2021. He continued that as more people receive vaccinations, the degree of confidence rises.
He said the CHED had already permitted non-immunized pupils to attend school two months prior.
He explained that the reason is that the at-risk population is now easier to control due to the low percentage of unvaccinated people and that students are the age group least likely to get the virus.
“It is much safer now for us to have face-to-face classes,” De Vera said. “If we exercise correct health procedures, we receive booster shots if we are disciplined in how we walk around.
