In La Union, 10 Security Guards Get COVID-19 Vaccine on Labor Day


A total of 10 security officers in La Union were vaccinated against COVID-19, in a symbolic vaccination ceremony to mark the 2021 Labor Day celebration today, May 1, 2021, at the City Health Office, City of San Fernando, La Union. 
Through DOLE Sec. Silvestre “Bebot” Bello III, the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF EID) has approved the special vaccination schedule of 5,000 minimum wage earners and Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) all over the country only on May 1, to symbolize the Duterte Administration’s steadfast commitment to protect the welfare of the Filipino workforce. 
DOLE RO1 vetted security guards to take part in the symbolic vaccination. “Our security officers are among the most hardworking sectors in the labor force. Just like our medical frontliners and healthcare workers, they spend no holiday and render extended work hours just to ensure the security of offices and workplaces,” Regional Director Evelyn R. Ramos said. 
Among the security officers vaccinated was Bartolome Gamboa, 44, who has been in the profession for 21 years now. “Napakahalaga pong mabakunahan kaming mga sekyu dahil sa trabaho namin na kung saan iba-ibang tao ang nakakasalamuha namin araw-araw,” he said, as he expressed his thanks to DOLE for choosing him to be one of the 10 symbolic vaccinees. 
The other security officers were Sonny Macanas, Mark Bryan Nevado, Garry Ancheta, Edil Jones Cabansag, Rodante Mon, Alfrea Marie Pimentel, Lea Lopez, Jeffrey Ramillo, and Ronald Aquino. They belong to various security services contracting agency in La Union. END/Justin Paul Marbella
