Mayor Lacuna-Pangan ans Department of Health Officer-in-Charge Maria Rosario Vergeire simultaneously vaccinate Supreme Court employees after their flag ceremony at the Supreme Court Quadrangle.

Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo extended his appreciation to the national and local government in their efforts to vaccinate the eligible population.

“Without the help and the support of our national government and local government, we could not have made it this far,” Chief Justice Gesmundo said.

“With the help of the national and local government, we have extended our vaccination and booster drives to not just our employees alone, but to their families and household members as well,” he added.

DOH OIC Vergeire also acknowledged the active participation of the Manila LGU in the vaccination efforts of not only those inside Manila, but also the nearby cities and municipalities.

“Salamat po Mayor sa paninigurong protektado hindi lamang po bawat Manilenyo, kun’di lahat po ng karatig-pook and especially yung mga opisina na umaasa sa ating gobyerno,” Vergeire said.

The Manila LGU has provided vaccines and vaccinators to the public and private sectors within Manila since the availability of vaccines, with the Supreme Court justices, employees and their families as one of the beneficiaries of the said efforts.
