1,000 Arayat residents brave rains, quake to get Janssen jabs

The Arayat municipal government inoculated a total of 1,000 residents in the town over the weekend, the biggest batch yet, according to officials.

On Saturday, the single-shot Janssen doses were administered to senior citizens and essential workers, according to Madeth Alejandrino, executive assistant to the governor and the wife of Arayat Mayor Emmanuel Alejandrino.

“This is the highest number of jabs administered in a single day in our town. The vaccines are part of the total 4,000 doses downloaded by Governor Dennis Pineda to our municipality,” she said.

The remaining 3,000 doses of single-shot vaccines will also be rolled out in the coming days at their mega-vaccination site located inside the Exact Colleges in Barangay Suclayin, Alejandrino said.

As of July 24, a total of 12,000 Arayat residents have been vaccinated, the official said.

“We are very happy to share that more and more residents here wanted to get vaccinated. This is far from the perspective they have when the vaccines were first introduced,” she said.
