Sibagat LCE highlights importance of master plan for vaccination program implementation

BUTUAN CITY, May 24 (PIA) – Mayor Maria Liza Evangelista of Sibagat, Agusan del Sur highlighted the significance of having a municipal master plan in the implementation of the government’s vaccination program to ensure that the vaccines are given to the eligible priority groups and consumed as targeted.
 
“We made a municipal master plan on what to do for the arrival of vaccines and the support required from us, especially since many of our people will come from remote barangays,” cited Evangelista during the Network Briefing News aired on Friday.
 
The lady mayor also revealed that the health personnel in their municipality, along with the barangay health workers went around to do information dissemination as there had been mixed reactions and perspectives about the vaccines -- there are people who are very positive about it and there are also people who are afraid not knowing the after-effects of the vaccine.
 
“We are capacitating our health workers and divided them into teams for the arrival of the vaccine; so far, it's manageable. There were already 987 who received their first dose. We continue to implement the guidelines from the Inter-Agency Task Force against COVID-19 up to the region and province especially that we are in between two cities (Butuan and Bayugan), so most of our residents' transactions are in the city,” bared Evangelista.
