3,000 lang? Taytay Mayor Joric Gacula disappointed over vaccine allocation

Aug 7, 2021 @ 10:17

Taytay Mayor Joric Gacula disappointed that all his pleading for vaccines from the national government only resulted in the allocation of 3,000 doses.

In a Facebook post, Gacula said he is aware that the country has a limited supply of vaccines.

But he said 3,000 was just too few for Taytay’s population.

He said that based on the 2020 census, Taytay has the second biggest population among municipalities in the country.

He appealed to the Department of Health for additional doses.

Taytay is ready to administer these, and has the storage facilities, vaccination sites, and health workers he said.

Taytay is prepared, but is the DOH ready to listen?

“Sa tagal-tagal nating pakikiusap, 3,000 doses lamang ng Sinovac ang matatanggap ng Taytay mula sa DOH.

Alam nating lahat na mayroong kakulangan at kabagalan sa pagdating ng supply ng bakuna. Ngunit kung iisipin nating mabuti, hindi sasapat sa dami ng mamamayan ng Taytay ang kakarampot na bilang ng bakunang dumarating.

Base sa 2020 Census Report ng Philippine Statistics Authority, pangalawa ang Taytay sa pinakamalalaking munisipalidad sa buong Pilipinas (batay sa populasyon).

Rodriguez (Montalban) – 443,954

Taytay – 386,451

Cainta – 376,933

Nananawagan kaming dagdagan ng DOH ang bakunang inilalaan para sa ating bayan. Handa po kami. Nakahanda ang aming storage facilities, mga vaccination centers, at lahat ng healthcare workers para sa pagbabakuna.

Para po sa kaalaman ng lahat, at para na rin maging transparent sa natanggap nating update mula sa Provincial Director ng DOH. Narito ang allocation ng bakuna para sa bawat bayan ng Rizal:

2,000 doses: ANGONO

1,700 doses: BARAS

3,000 doses: BINANGONAN

11.000 doses CAINTA

1,200 doses: CARDONA

1,200 doses: JALAJALA

1,700 doses: MORONG

1,200 doses: PILILLA

11,400 doses: RODRIGUEZ (MONTALBAN)

3,000 doses: SAN MATEO

2,200 doses: TANAY

3,000 doses: TAYTAY

1,200 doses: TERESA

Muli, hinihiling naming marinig ang hinaing ng bawat Taytayeño, DAGDAGAN ANG BAKUNA,” Gacula posted.
