Bohol 2nd district Rep. Erico Aristotle Aumentado on Tuesday said he received the first dose of the China-made Sinovac vaccine.
Aumentado and his wife Vanessa got vaccinated at Ubay rural health office as they were part of the priority sector for the country’s inoculation rollout.
Aumentado added that he got vaccinated against the respiratory disease to protect himself and the people he is interacting with as a public official.
He got vaccinated to boost the confidence of his constituents and to prove its safety and efficacy.
“Protect yourself, your loved ones and all the people around you. Get vaccinated,” said Vanessa, a registered nurse, in her Facebook post.
“Being asthmatic belongs to A3 & this is where i am being categorized. I am a Registered Nurse by profession so i can be at A1 category too even if im not practicing anymore kay by the time mag mass vaccination na & incase magkulang na gyud nurses we can be of help. Posting this on fb to show u guys nga dili angay mahadlok sa vaccine, ” she added.
As of Tuesday, Bohol has recorded 4,478 total confirmed Covid-19 cases, 764 of which are considered active cases. There were 61 deaths recorded.
