Pasay’s chief executive is hoping that no one in the city will get sick from the COVID-19 vaccination.
“Buo ang tiwala ko na dumaan ang mga ito sa masusing pag-aaral at mahigpit na pamantayan bago maaprubahan ng ating Food and Drug Administration (I am confident that these vaccines underwent rigorous study and strict standards before they were approved by the Food and Drug Administration),” Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano.
The mayor noted that it is imperative that their city has an indemnification program to help increase the people’s trust in the immunization campaign.
She announced on Monday that P30,000 is allotted for every resident of Pasay City who might get sick after getting inoculated.
“Kung alam kasi ng ating mga mamamayan na katulong at kasama nila ang kanilng lokal na pamahalaan at hindi sila pababayaan ay tiyak na makakadagdag ito ng kumpiyansa para magpabakuna sila (If citizens know that the local government is by their side, they will be more confident to get vaccinated against COVID-19),” she stressed.
It can be recalled in January 2021 that Senator Nancy Binay filed a bill seeking to establish an indemnification fund to compensate those who will be vaccinated against COVID-19.
