Navotas Rep. John Rey Tiangco urged senior citizens to follow the example of a 100-year-old resident who gamely received the COVID-19 vaccine in June.

Tiangco recently visited Dominga Santiago after she got fully vaccinated with the AstraZeneca jab on June 14. The lawmaker said the vaccination was an early birthday gift for Santiago, who will turn 101 soon.

“Mahalaga po na agaran nating mabakunahan ang ating mga senior citizens dahil kabilang sila sa A2 (All Senior Citizens) na high-risk sa Covid-19. Kung sila po ay mabakunahan, ating masisiguro na di hahantong sa severe case kung sakaling sila ay magpositibo sa Covid-19,” Tiangco said in a Facebook post.

He urged senior citizens and their relatives to register online for their vaccination appointment via https://covax.navotas.gov.ph/

Those who have bedridden relatives can coordinate with their barangays to schedule a vaccination at their homes.
