CITY OF MALOLOS, Bulacan – Some 600 members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community in this province who are 18 years of age and above will be inoculated against coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) on Thursday.
The vaccination will be conducted at the Provincial Vaccination Site, Hiyas ng Bulacan Convention Center, Capitol Compound here as part of the provincial government’s efforts to achieve population protection against the dreaded disease.
The mass vaccination against Covid-19 for members of the LGBT community will be held through a collaboration between the provincial government’s History, Arts, Culture and Tourism Office, Provincial Health Office–Public Health, and the LGBT Bulacan Federation.
The registration form is posted at the Bulacan Tourism Facebook Page wherein 600 slots for Pfizer vaccines are reserved for the Bulakenyo LGBT members. Once registered, a confirmation text message will be sent to them.
Registrants are also required to bring a valid ID, own pen, and wear a face mask and face shield.
In case there is no valid ID, they can bring their birth certificate, student ID, or barangay clearance instead, while individuals who are pregnant or have comorbidity are required to bring a medical clearance.
Walk-ins are strictly not allowed and registrants are advised not to drink any alcoholic beverages a day before the vaccination.
Governor Daniel R. Fernando said in an interview on Wednesday he strongly believes that the province will soon recover from this pandemic.
“Hindi po ako mapapagod na magpaalala sa inyong lahat na magpabakuna. Hangga’t patuloy po ang pagbabakuna sa ating lalawigan, tumitibay po ang aking paniniwala na tayo ay makababalik sa normal nating mga pamumuhay (I will never get tired of reminding all of you to get vaccinated. My belief is getting stronger that we can go back to normal lives as long as the vaccination continues in our province),” he said. (PNA)
