Davao City steps up information drive on Covid-19 immunization program


The Davao City government has intensified its information dissemination on the Covid-19 vaccination program in the city.

Acting City Health Office head Dr. Ashley Lopez urged everyone to participate in the immunization program.

“We don’t want to be left out. We advise everybody, especially those who are indicated to receive the vaccine, our frontliners, those who are included in the A, B, [and] C groups. We have to participate because this is important,” he said.

Lopez dispelled false claims against the effects of the Covid-19 vaccine.

“Get rid of the false claims against the Covid-19 vaccine. Don’t believe easily, especially those who are negative. Because, if you compare it with the benefits of Covid-19 vaccine, it is high compared to its adverse effects,” he added.
