TUBOD, Lanao del Norte – Over 150 Provincial Volunteer Health Workers (PVHW) from the municipalities were inoculated by the Department of Health and Provincial Health Office at Mindanao Civic Center Gymnasium on Saturday, October 30, 2021.
Following Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo’s order in intensifying the vaccination program, these PVHWs were invited to get their jab of Pfizer or Moderna vaccines on-site, and in return, each were given 10 kilograms of rice and P500 cash as rewards.
Governor Dimaporo said that “this is to encourage more residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19”.
On behalf of Governor Dimaporo, Ms. Sittie Aminah Quibranza Dimaporo personally supervised the event and said that “Their service to the community as permanent volunteer health workers in the barangays for the continuous implementation of the health programs of the provincial government are much appreciated. Thus, their protection and safety must come first to influence the other people in their respective barangay to be vaccinated”.
The staff of the Provincial Community Affairs Office, Provincial Social Welfare and Development Office, Provincial Civil Service Unit, and the Incident Management Team were also present in the vaccination activity and distribution of goods.
“The second batch will be on Saturday, November 6, for PVHWs who are still unvaccinated, and the same incentives will also be given to them,” Regino Rey Guillermo, Sapad PGO-CAD Coordinator said. PIO-LDN
