Woman, 98, gets vaccinated with daughter, 61, in CDO

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY–One of this city’s oldest coronavirus disease (Covid-19) recipients got inoculated Tuesday along with her daughter, herself a senior citizen.

Baldomera Udasco, 98, was with her daughter Emercita, 61, when they availed of the city’s vaccination program at the SM Downtown Premier inoculation site here.

Emercita said she and her five siblings also managed to get the vaccine shots, adding it was important to be protected from the severe effects caused by the virus.

“Even today, she still has a sharp memory, and we are thankful we were given a chance to get vaccinated,” she said of her nonagenarian mother, who also urged the public to get vaccinated.

The local government started the inoculation for seniors on April 29, after inoculating all local medical workers.

Mayor Oscar Moreno, who himself was vaccinated under the senior citizens’ list, told the public to help other seniors to pre-register.

Although there are other ways to pre-register such as the surveys in barangays, the local government preferred online registration because of its convenience and faster response and scheduling.

“Show your love, your care, your affection sa mga seniors by helping them get vaccinated,” Moreno said. (PNA)
