Open-minded ka ba? Abby Binay asks Makati residents to consider getting COVID-19 vaccine

Makati Mayor Abby Binay has appealed to residents of the city to keep an open mind about the benefits of getting a COVID-19 vaccine as doubts about immunization remain.

In her February 15 column for Pilipino Star Ngayon, Binay said the city government is doing everything it can to address people’s concerns about the vaccine.

“Hinihiling naman namin sa inyo na maging bukas ang inyong puso at isipan sa mabuting layunin ng Bakuna Makati, na katuwang ang pambansang pamahalaan sa pagsusulong ng inyong kaligtasan at kaunlaran. Bigyan sana ninyo ng sapat na panahon at atensiyon ang pagpapalalim ng inyong kaalaman tungkol sa bakuna, na inyong makukuha sa mga lehitimong website at social media accounts ng Department of Health,” she said.

Giving a sneak peek of the city’s COVID-19 vaccination program, Binay said residents will be asked to fill out a patient information sheet and screening questionnaire at the venue where they will receive the vaccine.

“Tandaang ang mga hinihinging impormasyon ay may kina­laman sa gagawing evaluation ng ating health professionals­ para matiyak na dapat kayong mabakunahan, bukod pa sa physical examination. Huwag ding mahihiyang magtanong tungkol sa bakuna dahil handa kayong sagutin at paliwanagan ng ating mga doktor,” the mayor said.

Binay said residents who will receive the vaccine will receive a COVID-19 immunization record card, which will contain details of the vaccination.
