Vaccine czar encourages public to get vaccinated

MARAWI CITY, Lanao del Sur (PIA)–National Task Force (NTF) Against Covid-19 chief implementer and vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. urged the public to get inoculated as more Covid-19 vaccines become available.

“Magpabakuna na tayo. Marami na tayong bakuna pero maraming ayaw magpabakuna , takot sa karayum,” he said.

[Let’s get vaccinated. We have many vaccines but many do not want to be vaccinated, because they are afraid of needles.]

“Nagsimula na tayong magbakuna ng mga bata. Meron tayong 4 phases sa pagbabakuna ng mga bata hanggang sa maensure natin na ligtas ang mga bata,” he said.
