Health workers of the Bureau of Corrections (BuCor) have received their second dose of vaccine against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
In a statement issued on Sunday, May 9, BuCor said it started administering the second dose last April 30.
“Masasabing napakaimportante sa ahensya ng BuCor ang pagbabakuna lalo na sa ating mga Health Workers upang mas magampanan nila ang kanilang tungkulin na may dagdag na proteksyon pati na rin sa ating ibang mga uniformed at non-uniformed personnel na naglilingkod para sa kapakanan ng ating mga PDLs (We can say that it is important for the BuCor to get its health workers vaccinated as added protection for other uniformed and non-uniformed personnel who serve the welfare of persons deprived of liberty),” the BuCor said.
It said the vaccination of its health workers was made possible through the Department of Health (DOH).
It assured that its other personnel will also get vaccinated against the disease.
“Sa ngayon ay tuloy tuloy parin ang pagbabakuna sa iba pang personnel at taos-pusong nagpapasalamat ang Bureau of Corrections sa suporta mula sa Department of Health gayundin din sa iba pang partners ng ahensya (At the moment, the vaccination will continue for our other personnel and the BuCor is grateful to the DOH and its other partners),” it said.
“Sinisiguro ng ating butihing Director General Gerald Q Bantag na naibibigay ang pangangailangan ng kanyang nasasakupan lalo na sa pangkalusugan na s’yang napakaimportante sa panahon ng pandemya (Bantag assures that the needs of his constituents will be provided for, especially those concerning their health amidst the pandemic),” it added.
