Dizon to DOH Central Luzon: Reserve AstraZeneca shots for health workers
The deputy chief implementer of the National Task Force Against Covid-19, Vivencio Dizon, on Monday asked the Department of Health in Central Luzon to reserve its share of AstraZeneca vaccines for health workers during a visit to Bataan.
The official was in Bataan to witness the first inoculation with Sinovac vaccines of top officials of the Bataan General Hospital and Medical Center (BGHMC) led by its director, Dr. Ria Baltazar, according to a Philippine News Agency report.
Dizon told director Cesar Cassion to reserve the AstraZeneca vaccines for health workers in Bataan, the report said.
“Ngayong araw na ito ay iba na ang nakikita sa mga health workers. Nakangiti na sila at kitang-kita na imbes mukha ng takot ay mukha na ng pag-asa ang makikita sa mga mukha nila,” he was quoted as saying.
“Kaya napakalaki ng simbolo na sila ang unang-unang babakunahan ng mga unang bakuna na dumating nitong nakaraang mga araw,” Dizon added.
Dizon, together with Bataan Governor Albert Garcia, Bataan Rep. Jose Enrique Garcia III and Mayors Francis Garcia of Balanga City and Gila Garcia of Dinalupihan also inspected the Bataan People’s Center that will serve as the province’s mass vaccination center.
