San Fernando launches town hall dialogue on Covid-19 vaccines
The San Fernando City government has ramped up its information dissemination campaign about the Covid-19 inoculation program by launching town hall meetings to ensure its smooth sailing amid vaccine hesitancy.
Officials said the city government’s information, education, and communication campaign (IEC) town hall meetings would serve as the main venue for dialogue so residents could find answers to their questions regarding the vaccination program.
The program seeks to encourage support among the city’s residents to get themselves vaccinated against the coronavirus, Dr. Cheriane Canlas of the City Health Office (CHO) said in a Sun Star Pampanga report.
“Layunin ng aktibidad na ito na mabigyan ng tamang impormasyon ang mga tao tungkol sa mga bakuna kontra Covid at upang mawala ang kanilang takot at mahikayat silang magpabakuna sa panahong sila ay maaaring mabakunahan,” she was quoted as saying.
The town hall features public “frequently asked questions,” including the correct information about side effects and risks of the vaccines and the expected roll out of actual vaccination program in the city, according to the report.
Canlas said that while the government has identified qualified recipients of the vaccine, the town hall meetings are open to all residents.
“Target po na mabigyan ng kaalaman ukol sa Covid-19 vaccination program ang lahat ng mamamayan na nais mabigyan ng kaalaman ukol sa programang ito upang mawala ang takot at pangamba sa ating komunidad,” she added.
