    VP Leni calls on Filipinos to get vaccinated as Omicron variant continues its spread

    VP Leni calls on Filipinos to get vaccinated as Omicron variant continues its spread

    Presidential aspirant Vice President Leni Robredo on Wednesday, January 19, called on Filipinos to get vaccinated as COVID-19 cases continue to escalate in the country, driven by the highly transmissible Omicron variant.

    Robredo made a Facebook Live broadcast from Magarao, Camarines Sur, where she was observing the Office of the Vice President’s (OVP) Vaccine Express.

    “‘Yung mga nanood po sa atin ngayon, hinihikayat lang po natin na magpabakuna na po tayo… Tapos ‘yung mga anak niyo po na qualified na, pabakunahan na po natin para hindi tayo masyado nag-alala, lalo pa po kasi grabe ang transmissibility nitong bagong variant na ‘to, ‘yung Omicron. At least protected tayo sa mas severe na symptoms,” she said.

    At a time when the government is cracking down on the unvaccinated, Robredo reiterated her stand against strong arm tactics to convince people to get their shots.

    “‘Yung first day po ng Vax Express a few days ago, sa barangay siya talaga binaba. Ang dami pang nagpapabakuna. So, ito po ‘yung sinasabi ko na pag accessible sa tao, mas marami talaga ‘yung na-eengganyo magpabakuna,” she said.

    Robredo has consistently highlighted her Vaccine Express program as an example of how vaccination programs can reach out to people reluctant to get their shots against COVID-19.

    The Vaccine Express program is a volunteer driven OVP initiative that offers free COVID-19 vaccination and helps local government units who have vaccine supplies but lack qualified personnel to administer them to the public.
    It also gives incentives such as bags of rice, relief packages, and health kits to encourage people to get vaccinated.
    Aside from its vaccination program, OVP also has the teleconsulation program, Bayanihan E-Konsulta, and its free antigen testing Swab Cab project as part of its response to the COVID-19 pandemic. [End]
