“Walang vaccine na hindi safe na ibibigay ng gobyerno sa atin” – Provincial Health Officer Dr. Alejandro

ALABEL, Sarangani (March 7, 2021) – Dr. Arvin Alejandro, provincial health officer, receives the jab during the “ResBakuna, Kasangga ng Bida”, a Covid-19 inoculation drive on March 7 at Sarangani Health Care Facility (SHCF), also known as Sarangani Medical Center. Dr. Alejandro and Dr. Aileen Brion, SHCF Chief of Hospital, were the first to be simultaneously vaccinated. Both doctors were monitored by the standby medical team to check for adverse effect after the vaccination process. After 30 minutes, both turned fine and did not display any adverse effect. Alejandro said “the very reason kung bakit gusto natin ipakita na tayo ay nauna na magpa-inject because the vaccine that should be provided by the national government will always be safe for our constituents nationwide. Wala pong vaccine na hindi safe na ibibigay ng gobyerno sa atin.” The vaccination in SHCF was simultaneously done with the staff of Dr. Cornelio C. Martinez Memorial Hospital in Kiamba. These referral hospitals were assessed and prioritized by the Regional Health Office since they cater to Covid-19 patients. Alejandro said “sila talaga yung exposed sa virus at sila din yung referral hospitals ng ating iba-iba pang mga hospitals dito sa province.” (Jake Narte-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
