NIP running smoothly in Sarangani

ALABEL, Sarangani (March 19, 2021) – Maria Razel Bustria, provincial NIP (National Immunization Program) coordinator, checks over some AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccines on March 18 at Sarangani Health Care Facility (SHCF). A total of 370 doses of the said vaccine was turned over by the staff from the Regional Health Office intended for the health staff assigned in the treatment monitoring facilities and community isolation units in the seven municipalities of Sarangani. According to Bustria, “yung mga health workers natin na mga na-defer doon sa contraindication ng ginagawa nating inoculation nung nakaraan and yung mga nag-refuse na magpa-vaccine ng Sinovac ay ang mga makakatanggap nitong AstraZeneca.” She also disclosed that “itong AstraZeneca suits for our senior citizens, kasi hindi pwede sa kanila ang Sinovac.” She further added that AstraZeneca is designed for two doses with “10 to 12 weeks interval.” (Jake Narte-Joshua John Pantonial/SARANGANI PROVINCIAL INFORMATION OFFICE)
