Vico also reminded people to listen to experts and not to messages posted on Viber.
“This afternoon, I became the 57,858th Pasigueño vaccinated!
Our Vaccination Team has been teasing me for weeks now to get vaccinated. Mayors are in the A1 category. I really want to get vaccinated, but I always think that there are high risk priorities, like seniors… but I realized that vaccination is not just for myself, but for everyone I associate with… even though I’m careful and avoid physical contact, it’s still inevitable to meet and get down to the ground for work.
For those who are asking, AstraZeneca was used on me.. I didn’t share it anymore because of many people asking for Pfizer – why?? eh it’s also like that… All approved brands are at 100 % protection in the severe and the chances of getting infected are decreasing if the vaccine gets sick.
The supply is still limited but we expect there will be more in the coming months. So while we wait, let’s prepare ourselves. Listen to the expert, and not to the forwarded message on Viber. Let us remember, it’s not just for ourselves, but for all of us.”
