AgSur town SK official shares advantages of COVID-19 vaccine

BUTUAN CITY, Apr. 20 (PIA) -- As a youth leader and active advocate of the government’s vaccination program, Ralf Frias, the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Federation President of Talacogon, Agusan del Sur, shared during his virtual guesting over Network Briefing News his positive outlook of receiving the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccine.

“I decided to have myself vaccinated because being an SK official and model to other youths, I wanted to show them that the vaccine is safe and could protect us from the transmission of the deadly virus,” he said.

According to him, safety is more important in this new normal than anything else. “No one is safe until everyone gets vaccinated. We would not be able to protect others if we could not even protect ourselves,” added Frias.

Frias, further, revealed that the SK officials and the youths in their municipality have been active partners and advocates in intensifying the information drive on the government’s vaccination program. “We use the social media platforms in disseminating relevant information about the vaccination program to inform everyone on the advantages of having the vaccine against the spread of the virus. This is also to keep the youth become productive amid the COVID-19 pandemic,” he bared.

Frias also encouraged all the youths to take an active part in the government’s effort to control the spread of the virus and be safe at all times. “With the difficult situation that we are experiencing right now due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is important that we should always practice the health protocols to keep ourselves and our families safe from the spread of the virus,” he underscored.
