Senior citizens living in five coastal barangays in Sasmuan town received their Covid-19 vaccines, as the Pampanga provincial government ramped up the rollout of the jabs.

Officials said Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda personally visited Barangays Mabuanbuan, Malusak, Sebitanan, Batang 1st and Batang 2nd to lead the vaccine program, along with medical teams of the provincial government.

He said the provincial government seeks to provide convenience and affordable vaccines especially to senior citizens in coastal areas such as Sasmuan town.

Pineda noted that the barangays are the most remote areas in the town.

The villages are accessible only to boats, making it difficult to arrange for the vaccine rollout in the area.

In the coming weeks, the Pampanga provincial government will be administering the free Covid-19 vaccines to senior citizens in the coastal barangays of Lubao, Macabebe and Masantol.
