Vaccination of senior citizens in Maramag, Bukidnon
MARAMAG, Bukidnon (BukidnonNews.Net/06 May 2021) Members of the local vaccination team of the Municipality of Maramag administer the COVID-19 vaccine on one of the 200 senior citizens scheduled for inoculation on May 5, 2021, the first of the three days initial roll-out of vaccination for senior citizens in the town.
Some senior citizens took paracetamol 30 minutes before proceeding to the vaccination site in BNHSI Auditorium as a tip to “relax” and prevent a rise in the blood pressure, which was identified as one reason for delay. The Barangay Health Workers in Maramag sent SMS alerts to the senior citizens scheduled for vaccination that day. The vaccination schedule was also announced during the morning mass at the Catholic Church. Text by Iyren Dalipe, BukidnonNews.Net contributor; photo courtesy of Elgie Iman Aninayon
