TV host Iya Villania was excited to get herself vaccinated against COVID-19, and knowing its importance, she encourages the public to be vaccinated as well.
Villania scored on the importance of vaccines as per her Instagram post yesterday, June 7, where she shared some photos of herself while being given a shot of the vaccine.
“Never been so excited about getting vaccinated before. Drew and I were ecstatic to be part of the opening of the A4 category vaccination program! Very timely for me now that work is starting to take me outside of my home,” she said.
“This is it guys! If you are that essential worker in your home that needs to leave the house to provide, now is your chance to get protected! Do it for yourself, your family and for the nation,” she added. “Each person vaccinated is a step closer to us achieving herd immunity and a chance to get our old norm back.”
Villania also spoke in behalf of children who she feels also need to go outdoors. She explained that it can only be safe for them if there is already herd immunity.
“They said that we need 70% of our population vaccinated to be able to say that the 30% who aren’t yet vaccinated are also protected. We can get there if you do your part and get that shot,” she said.
She said there’s no need to worry about getting vaccinated because “all vaccinations being administered here are safe, effective and WHO approved.”
“Let’s not be choosy,” she stressed. “We were more than happy to get Sinovac. We can achieve herd immunity only if you too get that shot… no matter which brand it is. The sooner, the better.”
Villania is asking the public to register in their local government units for a schedule of vaccination. She also asked them not to walk away when their preferred vaccine is not the one which will be given to them.
“Let’s not waste what is already of limited supply,” she asked. “We can do this, but we can only do it together.” JB
