Prison officers of the Correctional Institute for Women (CIW) in Mandaluyong City have received their second dose of vaccines against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
In a statement, CIW said the officers were vaccinated last May 3 at the Hulo Elementary School. Their first dose was administered last April 5.
“Although most officers were fully vaccinated, not practicing protective measures is not an excuse, and the DOH (Department of Health) elaborates that the vaccine is just an additional tool to shield us from the said virus,” it said.
It pointed out that “CTSSUPT Virginia S. Mangawit gives emphasis on stopping the spread of Covid-19 inside the institution.”
“COVID-19 can lead to serious, life- threatening complications, and we can protect our loved ones, and the people around us by getting vaccinated,” it stressed.
