Vaccination for elderly continues as Mayor Ernesto Evangelista ramps up inoculation program

The Municipal Government of Santo Tomas is ramping up its inoculation program for senior citizens and persons with comorbidity against COVID-19, targeting at least 500 vaccinees per day in a bid to achieve the herd immunity here.

Mayor Ernesto Evangelista said the Santo Tomas LGU is doing “quite well” in the vaccination of senior citizens.

He, however, noted that the reason why some people do not get vaccinated is not just because of hesitancy but also due to access issues. To settle such issue, Evangelista ordered the Municipal Health Office (MHO) to make use of the LGU’s bus for free public transportation intended for senior citizens.
