CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – Five thousand employees of member-companies of the Pampanga Chamber of Commerce and Industry were vaccinated over the weekend.
The vaccination, facilitated by the Pampanga Capitol, was held in three sites – the Mekeni Products factory site in Porac, the RDF Feeds, Livestock, and Foods corporate office here and at the SM City Pampanga cinema.
“They belong to the A4 or economic frontliners that the national government started vaccinating in Clark. Our target is for our economy to recover and for many to be able to work again to support their families,” said Gov. Dennis “Delta” Pineda.
The vaccines used were purchased by the provincial government.
Provincial disaster risk reduction and management chief Angie Blanco and special health assistant Malu Lacson made sure that the vaccination went well, said Pineda.
“We will continue our vaccinations in the range of A4s even as local governments are still focusing on senior citizens and those with comorbidities,” Pineda added.
In Mabalacat City, Mayor Crisostomo Garbo has also initiated the a vaccination program specifically targeting owners and workers of small-to-medium enterprises operating in the city.
Garbo cited the SMEs’ “contribution to propelling the city economy” thus, the “imperative of vaccination among their ranks.”
