PIA, DILG drumbeat national vaccination days

CATARMAN, Northern Samar (PIA) -- The Northern Samar Philippine Information Agency and the Department of the Interior and Local Government partnered for a wider dissemination of the upcoming National Vaccination Days slated on November 29 to December 1, 2021

In a radio program interview hosted by PIA, DILG Provincial Director Danilo Laguitan discussed an urgent directive of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to ramp up the vaccination efforts of the Local Government Units to meet the country’s target of vaccinated populace before the year ends.

Laguitan calls for all Nortehanons to submit themselves for a COVID-19 vaccination as it is the best way to reduce the risk of getting and spreading OVID-19.

“COVID-19 Task Force member agencies are mandated to perform their duties in the preparation, execution and sustainability of the President’s order to achieve the country’s goal of 75% herd immunity by December 2021,” Laguitan reiterated.

He said, DOH should conduct an assessment of the capacity of the LGU to administer the vaccines and determine the volume of vaccines to ramp up the vaccination rate.

The Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) should provide the necessary support in the delivery of vaccines.

“The DILG is also directed to impose necessary sanctions against local government units (LGUs) and Local Chief Executives (LCEs) who are not performing or using the doses given to them in the most expeditious manner,“ Laguitan disclosed.

Philippine Information Agency on the other hand, encouraged information partners, the Local Government Information Officers, Information Officer of the national agencies and private media to constantly drumbeat and diseminate the big event Bayanihan Bakunahan.

For the province of Northern Samar, the National Vaccination Days set on November 29 to December 1, 2021 will be held at University of Eastern Philippines (UEP) Gymnaturium, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

All Nortehanons are encouraged to avail of the vaccine and be vaccinated. (NBQ/ADiaz/PIA N. Samar)
