Fernando calls on Bulakenyos to avail COVID booster shots

CITY OF MALOLOS– Governor Daniel R. Fernando calls on the Bulakenyos to get vaccinated with additional COVID-19 shots as the province faces another upward trend in the number of positive cases.

“Bagaman hindi pa gaanong kalala ang pagtaas ng kaso ng COVID dito sa ating lalawigan kumpara sa mga karatig nating lugar, nananawagan po ako sa ating mga kalalawigan na huwag nang hintayin ang paglala ng sitwasyon ng COVID bago tayo umaksyon. Bukas po ang ating mga vaccination sites upang makapagpa-booster tayo, at bigyan ang ating mga sarili ng karagdagang proteksyon laban sa COVID-19,” the governor said.
