Gov. Espino urges Pangasinenses to get vaccinated against COVID-19

November 16, 2021

Protektado po ang bakunado. Hindi po safe ang isang miyembro ng barangay kung hindi bakunado lahat dahil ang hindi bakunado ay siya po ang magdadala ng virus sa atin.”

This was reiterated by Governor Amado I. Espino III during the Abig Pangasinan Karaban in Barangay Cayanga, San Fabian on November 11 as he mentioned the downtrend of COVID-19 cases in the province.

Nabalitaan ninyo noong tumaas ng 800 ang cases natin per day, nag-600 at 400 pero no’ng nag-GCQ tayo ay pababa ng pababa naging 100 and this past week naging 27, 29 at no’ng nakaraang araw ay 37 at kahapon po ay 31,” said Gov. Espino.

Gov. Espino also hailed the discipline of Pangasinenses in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please stay safe. Ang maitutulong ninyo sa inyong pamilya ay ang disiplina at pag-aalaga sa sarili,” said Gov. Espino.

San Fabian Mayor Constante Agbayani also encouraged his constituents to be inoculated as he removed the fear of the people about the possible impact of the vaccine.

Ilalapit na namin sa inyo ang bakuna dahil gusto namin na bakunado kayong lahat. Huwag kayong maniniwala sa sabi-sabing ang nabakunahan ay mamamatay makalipas ang dalawang taon o magkakaroon ng sungay o buntot,” said San Fabian Mayor Agbayani.
