Health workers in Palawan have started receiving their second dose of coronavirus disease vaccines.

“Nagsimula na ang vaccination roll-out para sa 2nd dose ng Sinovac Vaccines para sa ilang frontliners ng Pamahalaang Panlalawigan ng Palawan at ilang ospital na pinangangasiwaan nito,” the Capitol said.

Frontliners from the Provincial Health Office (PHO) and Provincial Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (PDRRMO) were part of those who were inoculated with the second jab.

“Kasabay nito ay nabakunahan naman ng 1st dose ng Sinovac ang mga taga LGU Kalayaan,” said the Capitol.

Based on the PHO records 98% of medical frontliners in MHO and RHU received their first dose.

“Magpapatuloy ang pagbabakuna ng Sinovac hanggang sa susunod na linggo habang inaasahan na sa darating naman na buwan ng Mayo ay magsisimula ang pagbibigay ng 2nd dose ng AstraZeneca Vaccines sa mga nabakunahan nito,” said the Capitol.

“Samantala, mahalaga na makamit nila ang full vaccination upang makuha ng isang indibidwal ang full efficacy at proteksyon laban sa COVID-19,” it added.
