Maitum elderly receive first dose of Sinovac

MAITUM, Sarangani (May 8, 2021) - Senior citizens of Barangay Malalag line up for their first shot of vaccine against COVID-19 during the continuation of Resbakuna at the Rural Health Unit (RHU) on May 6. The Maitum RHU already has a total of 471 shots of Sinovac vaccines administered to senior citizens. The government’s coronavirus task force has approved the simultaneous vaccination of senior citizens, persons with comorbidities, along with health workers, as it expected more doses to become available, though schedule of deliveries has so far been delayed. This initiative is part of the efforts to speed up the vaccination program after health officials reported record-high infections in recent weeks. (John James I. Doctor - Joylyn B.
