San Fernando mayor: Health workers deserve to get inoculated first
San Fernando City Mayor Edwin Santiago expressed his gratitude to front-liners for serving as pillars in the fight against Covid-19.
“During the surge of Covid-19 in 2020, and even until now, kayo ang naging sundalo at nakikipaglaban sa kalaban,” the mayor said on Facebook.
“Kayo ang naging sandalan ng siyudad sa napakahirap na sitwasyon kaya nararapat lang na kayo ang unang mabigyan ng proteksyon ngayong naririto na ang bakuna,” Santiago added.
The city government seeks to vaccinate 1,021 frontliners and has so far vaccinated 300 members of the city’s Covid-19 response teams as of Friday.
Prioritized for vaccination are doctors, nurses, and employees working in the rural health units, as well as Health and Emergency Management Staff.
Members of the Task Force Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), barangay health workers, barangay health and emergency response teams, response teams of the City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office, and the City Social Welfare and Development Office are also on the list.
