“They who face the highest risk should get the earliest protection. First in line are healthcare workers.”

This, according to Quezon City 6th District Councilor Bobby Castelo, is the correct policy, as the government started the vaccine rollout in medical institutions nationwide.

In Quezon City, several hospitals already received vaccine doses for their healthcare workers. These medical institutions include the Quezon City General Hospital, East Avenue Medical Center, National Kidney and Transplant Institute, Lung Center of the Philippines, Veterans Memorial Medical Center, St. Luke’s Medical Center, V. Luna General Hospital, Philippine National Police General Hospital, Dr. Jose Rodriguez Memorial Hospital, among others. The inoculation program continues as more vaccines arrive in the country. 

“When we protect those who protect us, everybody will be safer and more secure.“

“When we protect those who protect us, everybody will be safer and more secure. By protecting the protectors, we protect ourselves,” said Castelo, who is on his third and last term as Councilor.

“By protecting the protectors, we protect ourselves.”

“Habambuhay at taos-puso ang ating pasasalamat sa ating mga medical frontliners. Sila ay mga tunay na bayani na dapat ipagdasal at suportahan sa tuwina. Utang natin sa kanila ang kalusugan at kaligtasan ng ating pamilya,” added Castelo.

According to Vaccine Czar Sec. Carlito Galvez, “By respecting and following the priority framework, we will be able to reduce Covid-19 morbidity and mortality, protect the populations most at-risk to the disease, slow down the transmission rate, and minimize social and economic disruptions.”

Castelo, in support to the government vaccine rollout and its policy prioritizing healthcare workers and medical frontliners, called on the public to, “wait for your turn according to the priority list, continue to follow health protocols, and help one another in this very difficult crisis.”

“Walang unahan, walang lamangan, pumila ng maayos, sumunod sa listahan, huwag umastang VIP, dahil sa krisis na ito ay ang mga healthcare workers at medical frontliners lamang ang bukod-tanging VIP,” reminded Castelo.
