Angeles mayor thanks Korean community for helping vaccine rollout
Angeles City Mayor Carmelo Lazatin Jr. expressed his gratitude to the city’s Korean community for assisting the city government in the vaccine rollout.
The Korean community lent one of two mobile buses that will be used to deliver Covid-19 shots to bedridden senior citizens in the city.
In November 2020, the 462 bedridden seniors received P2,000 cash assistance and calcium carbonate supplements via door-to-door delivery.
The mayor started this program in 2019 in fulfillment of his campaign promise.
To date, out of the 49,964 members of the elderly population in the city, some 12,412 seniors have received their first dose of vaccine, while 262 are already fully vaccinated.
“They are the most susceptible to the virus, that is why we are gearing up our efforts to vaccinate all the seniors in the city as soon as possible,” Lazatin said.
