Aid assured for Pasay folk who get sick from COVID vaccine

ALTHOUGH confident on the efficacy of the vaccines against COVID-19 virus, Pasay City Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano allotted an indemnification fund of P30,000 for every resident who might incur sickness arising from the immunization drive.

Mayor Emi also clarified that the city government has long been helping and indemnifying their residents, who might suffer unwanted injuries arising from the local government’s various health and immunization campaigns.

Matagal na po nating ginagawa ito sa ating lungsod na bigyan ng karampatang tulong ang ating mga residente. Panahon pa po ni Mayor Toni Calixto sa ilalim ng ating “Take Care, I Care” program kung saan nagbibigay tayo ng tulong sa mga maapektuhan ng programa,” she said.

The Pasay local chief executive added that they even improved the financial assistance relative to the COVID-19 vaccine campaign by raising the amount from P25 thousand to P30 thousand.

Lahat po ng magkakasakit dahil sa bakuna ay makakatanggap ng medical assistance na itinaas na po natin sa P30 thousand mula sa P25 thousand at magagamit sa lahat ng mga public at private hospitals dito sa lungsod,” Mayor Calixto-Rubiano said, adding:

Pero umaasa po ako na wala namang magkakasakit dahil sa bakuna dahil buo ang tiwala ko na dumaan ang mga ito sa masusing pag-aaral at mahigpit na pamantayan bago maaprubahan ng ating Food and Drug Administration.
