Philippine Fisheries Development Authority – Navotas Fish Port Complex (PFDA-NFPC), together with the Navotas City Health Office, participated in the three-day “Bayanihan, Bakunahan” National COVID-19 Vaccination Days to inoculate port workers and residents within the port’s vicinity, held at the port's Motorpool Area on November 29 to December 1, 2021.
During the vaccination days, 319 individuals received their second dose of COVID-19 vaccine, while 150 individuals received their first jab of the vaccine.
As per Proclamation No. 1253, all PFDA-NFPC employees and workers who received their vaccine during the period will not be considered absent from their work, provided that they present proof of vaccination.
This joint activity by the PFDA-NFPC and Navotas-LGU is another step towards herd immunity inside the fish port against the COVID-19 virus.
On top of the three-day vaccination drive, a total of 30 individuals have received their COVID-19 booster shots. Fully vaccinated individuals from the A1 to A3 categories are qualified to receive boosters after health officials authorized the rollout of the vaccine starting December 1.
