Bello gets second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, urges other priority groups to do the same

 

May 15, 2021 - DOLE Secretary Silvestre H. Bello III got his second dose of the AztraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in Ilagan City, Isabela earlier today.

 

The vaccination was administered by personnel from Cagayan Valley Medical Center (CVMC), who assisted the secretary in the preparation and actual administration of the vaccine. 

 

Bello belongs to the priority group as listed by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) under the National Immunization Technical Advisory Group (NITAG) prioritization framework and criteria, belonging to the senior citizens group. 

 

The prioritization framework adopted by the IATF ensures that those who have the highest risk of exposure and death will be protected from the disease. 

Bello meanwhile urges other priority groups to take the vaccine so as to minimize social and economic disruptions caused by the pandemic. 

 

I encourage my fellow workers and other priority groups to take the vaccine. Let’s take advantage of this free vaccination program from the government so we can finally move past this pandemic that we are in.” ###
