FEATURED STORIES

Nueva Vizcaya Gov. Carlos Padilla has urged medical workers who are on the frontlines to get injected with CoronaVac, the coronavirus vaccine donated by China and made by Chinese firm Sinovac, instead of waiting for other brands. The donated CoronaVac doses were meant for health workers.

“We hope that this will go smoothly and effectively. This is a challenge and I will assure you that there is nothing to lose, everything to gain in supporting this program,” he said at a press briefing on Tuesday.

Unqualified for the vaccine for being a septuagenarian, Padilla said he was willing to get injected with the AstraZeneca vaccine that will arrive soon.

At Dupax District Hospital in Dupax del Sur town, also in Nueva Vizcaya, the vaccine rollout raised hopes that COVID-19 would be stopped, said Dr. Edward Gines, hospital chief.
