Commitment to get vaccinated – VM Balazon

MAITUM, Sarangani (May 8, 2021) - "I have a commitment to get vaccinated," says Vice Mayor Tito Balazon as he gets his first Sinovac vaccine shot during the continuation of Resbakuna administered by Department of Health certified vaccinator, Dennis Roxas, at the Rural Health Unit on May 6. Balazon said it is important for senior citizens and persons with comorbidities to get vaccinated because it will have a significant impact on their lives. Medical experts have also urged the senior citizens, being among the priority groups to get vaccinated as soon as possible, as they are among those most exposed to COVID-19 and at most risk of developing severe bouts of the disease. There were over 400 senior citizens, including some members of Barangay Health Emergency Response Team, who have been vaccinated. (John James I. Doctor - Joylyn B.
