June 22, 2021

To help its constituents uplift their lives despite the pandemic, The Provincial Government of Pangasinan, under the directives of Gov. Espino, brought the Abig Pangasinan Karaban to Barangay Lobong, San Jacinto on June 19.

“Ang layunin ni Gov. Pogi Espino sa buong probinsya ay gumanda at bumuti ang kalagayan ng mga residente kaya dinadala ng pamahalaan ang Abig Pangasinan sa buong probinsya, kabilang na ang bayan ninyo,” said Second District Board Member Nestor Reyes.

BM Reyes added that the Abig Pangasinan targets to visit all the towns and cities of the province to provide free medical and livelihood services to its people in the middle of the pandemic.

The board member also urged Pangasinenses to support and participate in the vaccination activities of their respective local government units to achieve herd immunity in the province.

“Magpabakuna po tayo. Wala po tayong dapat ikatakot dahil normal lang sa isang bakuna ang magkaroon ng side effects. Hindi natin mahahabol ang herd immunity kung mas marami ang hindi pa nababakunahan kaysa sa mga nabakunahan,” said BM Reyes.

Fourth District Board Member and the Sangguniang Panlalawigan Committee Head on Health and Education Jeremy Agerico Rosario encouraged the residents to get vaccinated with COVID-19 Vaccines to protect themselves against COVID-19.

“Ang bakuna po ay karagdagang proteksyon po natin laban sa kalaban na hindi natin nakikita ang COVID-19. Iyong facemask, face shield at social distancing ay malaki nang tulong sa pag-iwas sa COVID-19, pero kung nabakunahan po tayo mas lalo tayong maproprotektahan,” said BM Rosario.

BM Rosario also added, “Kapag dumating ang pagkakataon na pwede na kayong magpabakuna, i-grab po natin ang oportunidad na iyon dahil libre po ito.”

About 445.5 kilos of plastic wastes were collected by the Kalinisan Karaban from the Barangay Lobong and its neighboring barangays. The plastic waste collected were exchanged for goods such as grocery items, rice and cellphone load for Php 20.00 per kilogram.
