Marinduque Governor Presby Velasco has spearheaded the motorcade in the province today to urge Marinduquenos to get inoculated against COVID-19 during the National Vaccination Days.

“Katuwang ang Department of Health (DOH) sa pamumuno ni Dra. Rachel Rowena Garcia at Dr. Gerardo Caballes ng Provincial Health Office (PHO) pinangunahan po natin ang programa at motorcade para sa National Vaccination Day “Bayanihan Bakunahan” na nakatakdang ganapin sa darating na Nob. 29 hanggang Dec. 1, 2021,” said Velasco.

“Ang programa ay dinaluhan ng ating mga frontliners and personnel mula sa iba’t ibang ahensiya ng pamahalaan upang hikayatin ang ating mga kababayan na magpabakuna laban sa COVID-19,” he added.

The government targets to inoculate 9 million people during the event. It originally wanted to vaccinate 15 million people but slashed the target due to logistics issues.

“Patuloy ang ating pagsusumikap na makakalap ng karagdagang bakuna para sa ating lalawigan kaya’t hinihikayat po natin ang lahat na magpabakuna upang agad na maabot ang ‘herd immunity’ at tuluyang mapuksa ang COVID-19 virus sa ating lalawigan,” said Velasco.

The government will also hold another three-day National Vaccination Days on December 15 to 17.
