Taking a vax jab makes one feels relaxed - Gerona

By Jason B. Neola


Receiving a Covid-19 vaccine shot can help make vaccinees feel confident and a lot safer from the virus while still constantly observing the appropriate health and safety protocols.


This was stressed by Danilo Gerona, a History professor of the Partido State University, who received his first dose of Sinovac vaccine last May 6 at the Naga City Vaccination Operations Center in the Jesse M. Robredo Coliseum. The second dose will be administered by city health authorities after four weeks.


Gerona said he felt a sigh of relief after having been vaccinated. “In this time of pandemic, almost every one of us are alarmed of being infected with the dreaded SARS-CoV-2, which causes Covid-19,” he said.


Like any other vaccinee, Gerona felt no adverse reaction after taking the vaccine. The professor was among the third batch of vaccinees whose inoculation was administered by the medical healthcare workers of the city government of Naga. The first was conducted at the Bicol Medical Center with the LGU’s medical frontliners as vaccine recipients while the second was held at the Jesse M. Robredo Coliseum.


Meanwhile, the city government has started the distribution of more than 200 Covid-19 Care Kits to households whose members are in home quarantine or under house lockdown.


Mayor Nelson Legacion said the kits are being delivered to houses along with the food packs and other assistance being extended to Covid-19 infected residents.


Each kit contained vitamins, disinfectants (alcohol), face masks, digital thermometer, and pulse oximeter, which measures how much oxygen is in the blood.
