According to Rocha, of the 910 NMMC employees, 265 were vaccinated during the first day of the vaccination rollout on March 5. On the second day, 326 got their first dose of the vaccine, while 319 were vaccinated on the third day.
The NMMC liaison officer added that only six to eight employees who were vaccinated with the Sinovac vaccine experienced its adverse effects such as high blood pressure, palpitation and minor allergic reactions.
"None serious. Wala gyud na-admit sa amoa to address ang ilang mga adverse reactions to the vaccine," Rocha said.
Rocha said they are aiming to vaccinate 80 percent of the total NMMC employees within the duration of the vaccination rollout, which will end on Tuesday, March 9.
"Hopefully, ma hit gyud ang target kay naa gyud kana siya nga dili makapasar gyud sa among screening," Rocha said.
