No side effects from Sinovac jabs reported so far in Bataan
None of the 1,138 health workers at the government-owned Bataan General Hospital and Medical Center who were inoculated against the coronavirus with the Sinovac vaccine have shown any negative side effects from the jabs, officials said.
According to a Philippine News Agency report on Friday, Dr. Noel Lacsamana, BGHMC Covid point person/coordinator, said the first employees to be vaccinated out of a total of 1,342 BGHMC workers targeted for inoculated did not report any bad symptoms since receiving the shots.
“(There aren’t) any hitches or adverse effects on those inoculated with CoronaVac or AstraZeneca vaccines,” Lacsamana was quoted as saying in the report.
The vaccination drive held inside the BGHMC annex at the former Bataan capitol began last Monday.
BGHMC has been designated as an exclusive facility for Covid–19 patients.
Its workers were the first recipients of CoronaVac, developed by China’s Sinovac, and the United Kingdom’s AstraZeneca, in the province.
The DOH delivered 417 doses of CoronaVac to the Bataan facility last Saturday while 1,420 doses of AstraZeneca arrived on Monday, the report said.
