ALAMINOS City, Pangasinan — Department of Health (DOH) Undersecretary Carol Vidal-Taino and Ilocos Regional Director Paula Paz M. Sydiongco together with the local government and health officials of Alaminos City led the booster vaccination of more than 200 individuals during the “PinasLakas” Booster Vaccination Launching held at the Alaminos City Sports Complex in Alaminos City.

“We are overwhelmed by the support of Alaminians to the “PinasLakas” Booster Program of the government. The large number of people who voluntarily came to be vaccinated today only shows that they are ready to resume pre-pandemic activities, such as dropping COVID precautions including the removal of facemasks.”

‘Hikayatin po natin ang ating mga kababayan na magpabakuna upang ang buong bayan ng Alaminos ay maging 100% protektado laban sa Covid virus. Sa pagbabakuna natin maipapakita ang pagmamahal natin sa ating pamilya. Dahil kapag kumpleto po ang ating bakuna silang lahat ay protektado,” Undersecretary Taino stated.

For the PinasLakas Campaign, Alaminos City needs to vaccinate 35,965 or 50% of 12 years old and above. As of September 2, 2022, only 19% were boosted and a total of 21,821 still need to be provided with booster shots.

Director Sydiongco expressed her gratitude for the support of the Alaminos City government and urged everyone to encourage their family members to get their free booster shots.

“Panahon napo na tayo ay bumalik sa ating normal na pamumuhay na walang pag-aalala na tayo ay tatamaan ng sakit na Covid. Mangyayari lamang po ito kung mapapalakas natin ang ating immune system at kung lahat tayo ay protektado laban sa virus.”

“At ang tanging makapagbibigay sa atin ng proteksiyon ay ang pagkakaroon ng kumpletong bakuna,” Sydiongco emphasized.

All local government units in the region are regularly conducting vaccination schedules in all public areas including malls, marketplaces, covered courts, and house-to-house visits to make booster shots accessible and available to the public. (ai/mtvn)
