Tagumenyo senior citizens receive their first COVID-19 vaccine shot

TAGUM CITY – Following the prioritization framework for COVID-19 vaccination, the City Government of Tagum through the City Health Office facilitated the first phase rollout of the said vaccines for Tagumeyo senior citizens which are all under the Priority Group A2.

The City Health Office implemented a schedule-per-barangay scheme, administering the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine simultaneously in two venues – the COVID-19 City Task Force Operation Center at Brgy. Canocotan and at Robinsons Place Tagum.

Among the 386 senior citizens who had their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine today are the senior citizen religious leaders of Tagum, senior citizens of the LGU workforce, and senior citizens from barangay Visayan Village.

City Health Officer Dr. Arnel Florendo encouraged the Tagumenyo senior citizens to enlist themselves for the vaccine rollout by registering through the online form provided in the City Health Office – Tagum official facebook page, or they can opt to pre-register in their respective barangay health stations.

Moreover, Mayor Allan L. Rellon also received his first dose of COVID-19 vaccine today in accordance with the advisory issued by the National COVID-19 Vaccination Operation Center, reclassifying Local Chief Executives as Workers in the Frontline Health Services, thus included in the Priority Group A1.

The COVID-19 vaccine rollout for senior citizens will be until May 31, 2021.

Next to receive the same vaccine are the Priority Group A3 or Persons with Comorbidities. Drex Rafols/CIO Tagum
