Woman Receives First Dose During National Vaccination Day After Turned Away From Restaurant
An unvaccinated woman has decided to get her first dose against COVID-19 after getting turned away from a restaurant.
A few months ago, the Philippine government conduct a free vaccination against COVID-19 to protect the Filipino people from the threat of the respiratory illness. A lot of Filipinos have decided to get their vaccines for protection.
Unfortunately, some of our countrymen refused to get vaccinated assuming that the vaccine may pose risk to their health. Some Filipinos were afraid of the vaccine’s side effect to the body.
Recently, the government launches a COVID-19 vaccination nationwide from November 29, 30, and December 1, 2021 but it has been extended until December 3. The Department of Health (DOH) is calling the Filipino people to participate in the “Bayanihan Bakunahan: Ligtas. Lakas. Buong Pinas” campaign.
One of the participant is Rosanna Tenorio and her son who received their first dose at a vaccination facility in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. She admitted that she was nervous to get the vaccine because its possible side effects she heard from rumors.
“Ninerbyos po kasi gawa noong ang daming nababalitaan,” Rosanna said.
However, Tenario reported experienced discrimination for being unvaccinated after she was turned away from a restaurant. Her son and daughter-in-law have been also infected by the virus.
After those incidents, the woman has finally decided to get inoculated for their own protection and welfare.
“Hindi kayo makakain sa loob. Para kayong ibang tao, para kayong hindi invited. Nakaka-ano parang may sakit kang nakakahawa eh wala naman,” Tenario added.
