BACOOR, Cavite — The Bacoor City government started vaccinating its senior citizens on March 30 as it ramped up its inoculation campaign amid the surge of new COVID-19 infections in the province.
The city has already inoculated at least 750 elderly residents during the first two days of its vaccination drive for senior citizens at Barangay Alima and Bacoor Coliseum.
All the senior citizens, who are next in the priority line after healthcare workers, received vaccines made by British – Swedish drugmaker AstraZeneca.
In a Facebook post, Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla said the vaccination will resume next week adding that other senior citizens may reach their barangay officers for vaccine pre-registration using a digital system launched last month.
Mga kababayan, ngayon ay nasa ikalawang araw na tayo ng pagbabakuna sa ating mga senior citizens. Pakinggan ang kanilang kwento at mensahe para sa ating lahat. Sa susunod na linggo ay magpapatuloy ang ating pagbabakuna sa mga senior citizens, sumangguni sa inyong mga senior citizen organizations at Barangay officers para sa registrarion o pagpapalista. #BacoorYesSaBakunaPosted by Lani M.
