LOOK! | DILG OIC Secretary Bernardo Florece Jr. congratulates the Northern Mindanao Medical Center (NMMC) for being one of the recipients of the COVID-19 vaccines, during the launching of the vaccination program in Cagayan de Oro City, March 5.
“During the first day, medyo hindi pa ganoon karami ang nagpapabakuna kasi meron pang pag-aalinlangan but after dialogues and our advocacy campaigns, parami ng parami ang nagpapabakuna. Kaya ngayon, mas marami na ang demand kaysa available vaccine,” Usec. Florece said.
He reechoed that by being vaccinated, you prevent death, you reduce those who are symptomatic, you reduce those who are asymptomatic patients, and you prevent hospitalization.
“When we are vaccinated, we spare our family, our friends, our comrades, and our peers. We are protecting them. No one is safe until everyone is safe,” he added.
Others who were present during the ceremonial vaccination at the COVID-19 referral hospital were Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles, Vaccine Czar Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana, DILG 10 Regional Director Arnel Agabe, Cagayan de Oro City Mayor Oscar Moreno and DOH OIC Regional Director Ellenita H.M.V. N. Gamolo.
