5,012 Magalang residents get 1st dose of Covid-19 vaccine

SOME 5,012 residents of Magalang, Pampanga have received their first dose of coronavirus disease (Covid-19) vaccine, the local government said Thursday, July 1.

A total of 1,004 individuals have also received their second dose of the vaccine, it added.

All of these belong to the priority groups A1, A2, and A3, said the Municipal Health Office.

"Umabot na sa 5,012 ang total first dose vaccinations na isinagawa sa ating bayan habang nasa isang libo at apat 1,004 naman ang second dose vaccinations laban sa Covid-19 batay sa pinakahuling ulat ng Municipal Health Office," it said.

Because of the limited supplies of vaccines, the Pampanga Provincial Government decides which groups will be prioritized in the inoculation, according to the local government.

"Ang Pamahalaang Pamprobinsya ng Pampanga ang nagdedesisyon kung anong priority groups ang babakunahan ng ating health office dahil narin sa limitadong bilang ng bakuna," it said.

Mayor Romy Pecson urged his constituents belonging to the priority groups to avail themselves of the vaccination program.

"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," the local government said.

"Lahat ng interesado magpabakuna kontra Covid-19 ay maaari nang mag register sa at hintayin ang text/tawag mula sa ating mga healthworkers," it added.
