Senior citizens and companions both get Pfizer shot

ALABEL, Sarangani (October 27, 2021) - Senior citizen Luzviminda Roquero Jalipa (right), 75, from Barangay Kawas, receives her first jab of a Pfizer vaccine on October 21 during the provincial government’s vaccination drive at the Capitol gym. Jalipa was accompanied by her son-in-law who was taking a photograph of her while being administered with the vaccine. Her son-in-law, Joemar Francelliso, 47, also got his Pfizer shot. According to Maria Razel Bustria, provincial NIP (National Immunization Program) coordinator, this is part of Sarangani’s newly-launched vaccination strategy “the best protection against Covid-19 comes in pair.” The program allows senior citizens to “bring a companion, caregiver or guardian” who can also avail of the vaccine,” Bustria added.
