PHO’s reminder: Vaccine won’t give full immunity

By March 28, 2021Inside News, News

THE Provincial Health Office (PHO) continues to remind all residents to continuously comply with the minimum health standards despite the availability of vaccines amid the rising cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in the country.

PHO chief Dr. Anna de Guzman pointed out in a radio interview last week that although the country has started its vaccination program against COVID-19, the vaccines do not give full immunity but these help provide added protection against the virus.

De Guzman said no vaccine to this guarantees full immunization to persons who were inoculated, that they would never acquire the targeted diseases or infect other people.

“The objective of the vaccination program is to give additional protection to your body to fight the virus but it does not guarantee you not to acquire nor transmit the virus,” she said.

She said everyone must continue to properly wear face masks, face shields, and religiously observe physical distancing, as well as frequent hand washing and coughing etiquette. (Jerick Pasiliao)
