Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson got fully vaccinated against the coronavirus disease 2019 after he received yesterday his second dose of the Sinovac vaccine at the Teresita L. Jalandoni Provincial Hospital in Silay City, four weeks after the initial shot on April 30.

“What is available is the best vaccine,” he said, adding that he believes getting a Covid-19 vaccine would heal humanity from the pandemic.

Lacson was joined by the municipal and city mayors, who also took their first dose last month.

The mayors included Pedro Zayco of Kabankalan City, Nicholas Yulo of Bago City, Manuel Escalante III of Manapla, John Rey Tabujara of Cauayan, and Rhumyla Nicor-Mangilimutan of La Castellana.

SECOND DOSES

Some members of the Sangguniang Panlalawigan also came for their second dose.

Lacson said the vaccination completes the health protocols that should be followed by every individual to fight Covid-19.

“After inoculation, continue to follow health protocols,” he added.

At the Capitol-owned Negros Residences in Bacolod City, a two-week “Barangay Kapitolyo” mass vaccination is being held for provincial government employees and other personnel until June 4.

As of May 27, Negros Occidental had 14,632 confirmed cases, including 1,336 active infections, 12,967 recoveries, and 329 deaths.*PNA
