National gov’t workers eyed for booster shots
THE city government is looking at providing booster shots on national government employees as about half of those who were fully vaccinated have gotten another shot.
Dr. Michelle Schlosser, COVID-19 Task Force, said the vaccination cluster of the task force has identified the offices.
"So far, nakit-an nato sa evaluation naa pa gyud mga offices sa government na ang mga employees wala pa ma-booster. Isa sa atong lakang is ang inoffice vaccination rollout," she said as the initiative is on top of the ongoing rollout via the vaccination hubs, mobile, drive-thru, sectoral, and house-tohouse for 12 to 17 and adult population age groups; and special site vaccination sites for the pediatric five to 11 years old population.
The offices that have been identified include the regional offices of the Bureau of Internal Revenue, Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources, Commission on Audit, Department of Agriculture, Department of Agrarian Reform, National Housing Authority, and Office of Civil Defense.
