CHO waits for next DOH vaccine allocation
City Health Officer Dr. Gloria Fabrigas mentioned that since the allocated 1,600 AstraZeneca and 255 Sinovac vials (except for one adulterated) have all been administered, the #Resbakuna team awaits for the next allocation from the DOH.
The Tacloban City Health Office team administered the remaining 260 Astra Zeneca and 10 Sinovac shots to Barangay Health Emergency Response Teams (BHERTs) and the remaining front-liners and health workers yesterday, March 30, 2021, at the USAID Building, City Hall grounds, Kanhuraw Hill, this city.
Before getting the jab, these priority-recipients have to undergo some required steps like registration, assessment, medical examination, and counselling. According to Dr. Fabrigas, there were still a number of interested individuals from the category list of priorities but yesterday’s priority were the BHERTs and the remaining front-liners/ health care workers.
She then mentioned about the ongoing pre-registration of the Covid-19 vaccination of the senior citizens (A2) being the next priority, and advised the interested Taclobanon senior citizens to coordinate with their Barangay Officials or the Office of the Senior Citizens Affairs (OSCA.)
