Bacoor LGU pushes for herd immunity, opens new vaccination hub

BACOOR CITY, Cavite May 3 (PIA) -- In a bid to inoculate more Bacooreños with the arrival of the next batch of CoViD-19 vaccine supply from the Department of Health (DOH), the city government here recently opened an additional vaccination hub at the Niog Elementary School.

A total of 328 residents under the A2 and A3 priority groups were vaccinated during the said launching activity. 

Likewise, simultaneous vaccination activities conducted at the Bacoor Coliseum and at the Alima Elementary School vaccination hubs gave out 350 and 329 vaccine jabs respectively for a total of 1,007 senior citizens and those with comorbidity residents vaccinated on May 1, 2021.

The turnout of residents for the vaccination is due to the intensified information campaign for the CoViD-19 vaccination program by the city government which changed the general perception of the residents particularly the senior citizens in the city from hesitation to trust.

"Nandito kami ngayon para magpabakuna laban sa CoViD-19. Taliwas sa mga unang napapabalita tungkol sa vaccine tungkol sa mga namamatay, mas minabuti nang maging protektado laban sa CoViD-19," a female senior citizen resident proudly said.

(We are here today to get vaccinated against CoViD-19. Contrary to initial reports about the deaths from the vaccine, it is better to be protected against CoViD-19.)

As of May 1, 2021, records show a total of 8,074 Bacooreños inoculated with the 1st dose of the CoViD-19 vaccines. (Ruel Francisco with reports from the City Government of Bacoor FB page)
