Sta. Rosa City govt receives three awards for COVID-19 vaccination drive
Sta. Rosa City is turning out to be a role model when it comes to COVID-19 vaccination.
The Sta. Rosa City government received three trophies during the Calabarzon Golden Jab Awards held on May 9.
In a Facebook post, the city government said its first award was for administering close to 39,000 doses during the first national vaccination drive, which was more than the target set by the Department of Health.
“Matatandaang pinuri pa ng national government si Mayor Arlene B. Arcillas at ang Lungsod ng Santa Rosa noong Bayanihan Bakunahan 1 Press Briefing dahil matagumpay nitong nalampasan ang target na ibinigay ng DOH,” it said on Facebook.
The second award was for administering more than 47,000 doses during the second national vaccination drive.
This was the highest number for a local government in Laguna and second highest in the Calabarzon region.
Sta. Rosa’s third trophy was for being a local government with the best practices in the mass vaccination campaign.
“Dahil sa pakikipagtulungan ni Mayor Arlene B. Arcillas sa mga pribadong kumpanya ay nagkaroon ng dagdag na vaccination centers sa lungsod noong NVD 1 & 2 na naging rason ng mataas na vaccination rate sa lungsod. Dagdag pa rito, nagkaroon din ng libreng tranportasyon papunta sa vaccination centers, libreng snacks, at community vaccination sa mga barangay,” the local government said.
