MCC, Tubod – To fasten and intensify the vaccination campaign, the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte conducted another rollout activity for vaccination at Mindanao Civic Center, Tubod last November 6, 2021. The said activity was participated by different Provincial Volunteer Health Workers (PVHW) from the municipalities of Baroy, Lala, and Kapatagan.
Apart from themselves, each PVHW brought their respective acquaintances (family members, neighbors, etc) to be vaccinated. The participants were able to choose what vaccine they want.
Ms. Hazel Domanico, a PVHW and a bonafide resident of Baroy, said that “We prompt and brought them here so that they can also be vaccinated and be protected from COVID 19”. (Nagdani ug gedala namo sila dri, aron usab sila mabakunahan og mamahimong protektado laban aning maong COVID 19).
As a reinforcement, PGLDN through the initiative of Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza Dimaporo, gave incentives and conducted raffle draws with rice, rice cookers, electric kettles, and a refrigerator as prizes for those vaccinated PVHW.
“I am very grateful to Gov. Angging and Cong. Khalid. Not only was I vaccinated, I even received a new refrigerator”(Dako ang akong pasalamat kay Gov. Angging og Cong. Khalid. Wala lang ako nabakunahi, nakadawat pa ako ug bag-ong ref), Maria Cleofe Arcillas,70, a PVHW from Maranding said.
