Bambang mayor: Support our COVID-19 Vaccination Program

BAMBANG, Nueva Vizcaya, March 10 (PIA) - - - Now that more health workers are getting inoculated since the start of COVID-19 vaccination roll out, Mayor Pepito Balgos here said he expects that more villagers will participate in the government's vaccination program.
