Delta leads vax rollout for seniors in coastal areas
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – The difficulty for the elderly in Pampanga’s coastal areas to avail themselves of anti-Covid vaccination in the town centers prompted Gov. Dennis “Delta” Pineda to lead the vaccine rollout virtually right to their doorsteps.
On board motorized bancas on Friday, Pineda personally led a vaccination team to barangays Mabuanbuan, Malusak, Sebitanan, Batang 1st, and Batang 2nd in Sasmuan town to conduct inoculation of the senior citizens in the area.
Joining the governor in this first-of-its-kind vax rollout e rollout were provincial health office OIC Dr. Zenon Ponce, Diosdado P. Macapagal Memorial Hospital chief Dr. Fleur Zapanta, incident commander for vaccination rollout Dr. Dax Tidula, central command deputy for vaccination rollout Malu Lacson, provincial disaster risk reduction and management officer Angelina Blanco, and Lubao Mayor Esmeralda Pineda who distributed food packages to those who were vaccinated and other residents.
Pineda said the boat-borne vaccine rollout will be undertaken next week for senior citizens in the coastal barangays of Lubao, Macabebe, and Masantol towns.
