The warm feeling that Pasay City Police Chief Col. Cesar Paday-os experienced after receiving the Sinovac vaccine on Wednesday meant that it’s working, he said. The feeling was tolerable, he added.

When asked if he felt feverish, he said: “..hinde… nawala naman na..nag aircon lang ako.. ok na (Not really, after going inside an air-conditioned room, it went away).

Paday-os, along with other police officers of the city, took part in the vaccination program that the local government conducted at the Pasay West High School. He also encouraged his fellow police officers to get themselves vaccinated.

“If they value their lives and lives of their family, friends, peers, etc. dapat magpabakuna na sila,” the police chief said.

According to the Pasay Public Information (PIO), more than 300 people in the city have volunteered to be inoculated against COVID-19.

The city has not yet confirmed if the additional 5,000 doses that Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya announced on Tuesday have already been delivered.

As of 5:30 p.m. on March 2, the city has logged a total of 521 active cases with 61 new cases.
