SOME 734 individuals, including medical workers and persons with medical conditions, recently received their first doses of the Covid-19 vaccine in Magalang town, Pampanga.

The LGU said a total of 159 frontliners and other priority residents got their second doses of the vaccine.

"Umabot na sa 734 ang total first dose vaccinations na isinagawa sa ating bayan habang nasa 159 naman ang second dose vaccinations laban sa Covid-19 batay sa pinakahuling ulat ng Municipal Health Office," the municipal government said..

Those who got the Covid 19 vaccines included barangay officials and health workers, personnel of private dispensaries, closed institutions like rehabilitation and persons with comorbidities.

"Ang mga nabakunahan ng Municipal Health Office sa naturang total na bilang ay ang mga A1.5 (Barangay Health Emergency Response Teams/Barangay Officials), A1.6 (Private clinics), A1.7 (closed institution like rehabs), at A3 (Persons with Comorbidities)."

The local government has scheduled this week the vaccination of senior citizens.

"Inaasahan namang mag-uumpisa ngayong linggo ang pagbabakuna para sa A2 o mga Senior Citizens kapag dumating na ang bakuna mula sa DOH at Pampanga Provincial Government," the LGU said.

Local officials urged the public to get updates from the LGU's Facebook page or the local health office.

"Manatiling nakatutok sa aming Facebook page para sa ulat ng iskedyul ukol rito, o hintayin ang text ng Municipal Health Office."

Mayor Romy Pecson asked his constituents to avail of the free vaccine the government is providing to prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

"Patuloy naman ang paghihikayat ni Magalang Mayor Romulo Pecson sa mga indibidwal na kabilang sa priority sectors na magpabakuna lalo na’t limitado pa ang bilang ng Covid-19 vaccines na dumarating sa bansa," it said.

"Lahat ng interesado magpabakuna kontra Covid-19 ay maaari nang mag-register sa at hintayin ang text/tawag mula sa ating mga health workers," the local government added.
