Best protection vs Covid-19 comes in pairs

ALABEL, Sarangani (October 27, 2021) – Annaliza Lanchita, 33, and husband Arbert Lanchita, 31, receive their first dose of Pfizer vaccines on October 21 at the Capitol gym during the Tutok Buntis drive initiated by the Provincial Health Office (PHO). The couple was among those who responded to “The best protection against Covid-19 comes in pair” strategy launched by the PHO to encourage pregnant women to get vaccinated together with their husband or other members of the family. The ceremonial kick-off of the vaccination “in pair” strategy for pregnant women and a companion during the Tutok Buntis was witnessed by (from left) Dr. Honorato Fabio (2nd from left), Alabel municipal health officer; Sangguniang Panlalawigan member Irish Arnado; Dr. Amalia Braña, obstetrician-gynecologist from General Santos City; and Maria Razel Bustria, provincial NIP (National Immunization Program) coordinator. According to Bustria, the presence of the OB-GYN and other doctors during the inoculation drive “gave them the confidence to submit themselves sa pagpabakuna.” (Tres Besana - Jori Mae Samillano/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
