“It is only through vaccination that we can achieve herd immunity and finally overcome this pandemic. Vaccination is the solution to this crisis
The people’s fear should not be of the vaccines but of Covid-19, Senator Christopher “Bong” Go said as he stressed the importance of taking part in the government’s rollout program against Covid-19 now that the vaccines are here.
“If a large portion of our population will not be vaccinated, the threat of Covid-19 will continue to persist,” the senator warned.
He asked everyone to work with the government “as we strengthen our information campaign to educate the public on the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination process.”
“We must ensure that no Filipino is left behind,” he said.
“But even as we push for greater immunization, we still need everyone to act responsibly by following the health and safety protocols such as wearing masks and face shield, washing hands, observing social distancing, and staying indoors as much as possible,” he explained.
“This is also the outcome of the work of our officials who have been tirelessly doing their best to secure vaccine supplies from different manufacturers and institutions,” he said.
As more vaccines arrive, Go said the government will continue vaccinating the rest of the frontliners who have been working and sacrificing to save lives.
“Of course, the poor and the vulnerable are also in the government’s priority list,” he said.
“As President Duterte and I have constantly said, these sectors must be inoculated as soon as we finish immunizing our frontliners for them to be able to return to normalcy and help our economy recover,” he added.
