Bello gets inoculated, urges priority groups to do the same

Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III got his dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine in Ilagan City, Isabela on Saturday, DOLE’s regional office 2 reported.

The vaccination was administered by personnel from Cagayan Valley Medical Center (CVMC), who assisted the labor secretary in the preparation and actual administration of the vaccine.

Bello belongs to the priority group as listed by the Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) under the National Immunization Technical Advisory Group (NITAG) prioritization framework and criteria, belonging to the senior citizens group.

The prioritization framework adopted by the IATF ensures that those who have the highest risk of exposure and death will be protected from the disease.

After getting inoculated, Bello urged others in the priority groups to take the vaccine so as to minimize social and economic disruptions caused by the pandemic.

“I encourage my fellow workers and other priority groups to take the vaccine. Let’s take advantage of this free vaccination program of the government so we can finally move past this pandemic that we are in,” Bello said. ###
