CSC urges gov’t workers to get booster shots

QUEZON CITY (PIA) -- The Civil Service Commission (CSC) after hosting on 5 October the Department of Health’s (DOH) “Sa Boosters: PINASLAKAS” event at the CSC Central Office in Quezon City pushes to further improve the COVID-19 booster coverage rates in the country.

A total of 91 CSC employees, including their family members, were vaccinated during the day.

The CSC’s hosting was a move to show civil servants leading the way in getting COVID-19 booster shots.

CSC Chairperson Karlo A. B. Nograles, who joined the program thru video conferencing, revealed he recently recovered from COVID-19. “It is a good thing that I am fully vaccinated and boosted. ‘Yung symptoms ko po ay very mild, and my recovery was very fast. I am living proof that vaccines and boosters work.”

He expressed CSC’s support to the DOH’s PinasLakas campaign as the nation continues to strengthen its immunity wall. “As the country’s premier human resource institution, the HR agency for the entire bureaucracy, the CSC acknowledges our importance in moving our 1.8 million civil servants to action. Rest assured that we will continue to encourage government agencies and instrumentalities to urge their officials and employees to get boosted as soon as they can,” he said. (CSC / PIA-NCR)
