Almost All PGH Workers Registered For COVID-19 Vaccinations
ALMOST ALL PGH WORKERS REGISTERED – Around 94% of the workers in the Philippine General Hospital have registered themselves to take shots of COVID-19.
This February, the Philippines is expected to begin rolling out its vaccination programs. According to the government’s priority list, health workers are amongst the first to receive the vaccines.
As such, around 5,640 health workers and non-medical staff out of 6,000 potential recipients from PGH have given consent to have themselves inoculated. However, others opted to wait for follow-ups for the vaccines.
During an interview with Teleradyo, Dr. Jonas del Rosario, PGH Spokesperson said:
Yong iba may sakit, iba gusto nila hintayin ang longer follow-up ng vaccine. ‘Yong iba meron sila talagang paniniwala sa vaccine na hindi naman namin puwede maiba
This Monday, the PGH will be conducting a “grand simulation” of its coronavirus vaccine roll-out. Being a COVID-19 referral hospital, the PGH is one of the 4 hospitals given vaccine priority.
According to an article from ABS-CBN, they are expected to procure 117,000 doses of Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines from the COVAX facility.
Puspusan po ang paghahanda. We’re hoping na sana dumating na ‘yong vaccine
Meanwhile, the other hospitals prioritized for the vaccine are Lung Center of the Philippines, East Avenue Medical Center, and Dr. Jose Natalio Rodriguez Memorial Medical Center in Caloocan City.
