Manila Mayor Francisco 'Isko Moreno' Domagoso on Monday, March 1, observed the ceremonial COVID-19 vaccination for frontline workers of the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) together with national government officials in the health sector.

Domagoso was joined by Manila City Vice Mayor Maria Sheilah 'Honey' Lacuna-Pangan to observe the ceremonial vaccination held at the PGH.

"Dito magsisimula ang pinapangarap nating pagpunta sa isang panatag na pamumuhay sa mga darating na linggo, buwan, at buong taon ng 2021," Domagoso said in his speech before PGH frontline workers.


"I will respect your beliefs, your views, pero kung ako'y tatanungin niyo bilang ama niyo sa lungsod — huwag niyong ipagpabukas, huwag niyo ipagbakasali ang kaligtasan niyo. Mahalaga na makamit niyo ang proteksyon sa lalong madaling panahon," the Mayor added.

Likewise, the Mayor reiterated his willingness to be vaccinated in coming days, while also stressing that medical frontliners should be vaccinated first.

"We will get vaccinated para mahati ko kahit paano ang inyong pangamba. Samahan ko kayo sa inyong pangamba, sasama tayo sa pangamba niyo. Let us save lives," Domagoso said.

Also present at the event were National Task Force (NTF) against COVID-19 chief implementor Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr.; Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque Jr.; Department of Health (DOH) Undersecretary and Food and Drug Administration Director General Eric Domingo; Dr. Paz Corrales, assistant regional director of the National Capital Region (NCR) DOH-Centers for Health Development (CHD); and Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) chairman Benhur Abalos.

Secretary Galvez said getting vaccinated was a "moral obligation" that everyone needs and in order to help the economy survive.

"Hindi po makaka-recover ang ating economy, hindi natin maibabalik ang ating dating buhay kung 'di tayo magpapabakuna,” the NTF chief implementor said.

Dr. Legaspi, for his part, recalled the extreme challenges he and other frontline workers experienced when COVID-19 cases started spreading.

The PGH director is the first Filipino to be officially vaccinated in the country with SinoVac after it was formally authorized for use by the national government.

"Experts say that the best vaccine is the one that is in your arm," Dr. Legaspi said.
