Verify information and trust only facts from credible sources, says Gov. Solon

ALABEL, Sarangani (November 2, 2021) – Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon points out the need for the province’s constituents to verify first the information and to only trust facts from credible news sources. He raised this as Dr. Arvin Alejandro, provincial health officer, presented Sarangani’s Covid-19 vaccination average daily accomplishment in a consultative meeting on October 26 at the Capitol gym. In Alejandro’s report, he disclosed that “based on the target number natin to be accomplished until December this year, as of today (October 26) hindi pa umaabot ng 50% ang daily target natin.” According to him, one of the possible causes of the low vaccination turnout is the false information about the effects of the vaccines which caused hesitation among the public to get vaccinated. This problem was also raised by the mayors who were also present during the meeting. Moreover, the creation of mega vaccine sites for Sarangans and assigning additional teams to conduct the vaccination drive at the barangay level were highlighted during the discussion.
