Mayor Toby Tiangco Monday received his first dose of vaccine against Coronavirus Disease 2019.

Tiangco was among 260 persons with comorbidities in Navotas who got jabbed with CoronaVac at San Jose Academy.

Another 260 vaccinees also received the same vaccine at Tumana Health Center.

"Certified NavoBakunado na rin po tayo! Sa lahat po ng mga residente at manggagawa sa ating lungsod, magpa-rehistro na sa ating NavoBakuna COVID-19 vaccination program. 3,618 na po ang nabakunahan sa ating lungsod na mga frontliners, senior at may comorbidity," the mayor said.

"Susunod na po rito ang ating mga economic essential workers. Malaki po ang maitutulong ng pagpapabakuna para matapos na ang pandemya, at mapaangat na natin ang ating buhay at kabuhayan," he added.

Last week, after the national government confirmed that mayors in high-risk areas are allowed to get COVID-19 vaccine, Tiangco sought medical clearance from his asthma doctor.

His doctor advised him to stop taking one of his four maintenance medicines for asthma for a week. If his asthma does not worsen, then he could get vaccinated on the seventh day. 

Tiangco arrived at the vaccination venue around 11:30 a.m. and proceeded to the registration area. His blood pressure was 130/70 during screening and he was cleared for vaccination.

He stayed at the observation area for 30 minutes and was allowed to leave afterwards.  Tiangco reported no adverse reactions.
