Nueva Ecija starts own vaccine drive with arrival of jabs

Nueva Ecija officials led by Nueva Ecija Governor Aurelio Umali welcomed last week the arrival of te first batch of jabs procured under agreements between the provincial government, the national government and the manufacturer.

The 960 vials from AstraZeneca containing more than 10,000 vaccine doses were part of the provincial government’s efforts to conduct its own vaccine rollout separate from the national government’s, according to a report in Punto Central Luzon

The provincial government earlier signed a tripartite agreement with the Department of Health and AstraZeneca Pharmaceuticals Inc. for the acquisition of 300,000 doses of the vaccine. The jabs will be administered to 150,000 residents.

Umali, however, expressed his gratitude to the national government for supplying the province with free Covid-19 vaccines, the report said.

The provincial government has targeted for vaccination the 3,000 employees working at the provincial capitol in Palayan City as well as other sectors.
