VACCINATION against the coronavirus has started to regain momentum in Panglao, the main tourism island of Bohol which was among the provinces hit hardest by typhoon Odette, internationally known as Rai, in mid-December. 

The Panglao municipal government is holding daily inoculation activities this week starting Tuesday and called on those who are still unvaccinated as well as those who missed their scheduled second dose. 

The vaccination is being held at the Panglao Cultural Center except Thursday when the venue would be at the Rural Health Unit.

These buildings were among the government facilities that were reconnected to power service on Jan. 6 since typhoon Odette, which made its 5th of nine landfalls in Bohol on Dec. 16, left the entire province without electricity. 

The vaccination drive resumed on Jan. 6 at the cultural center for booster shots.

Bohol was among the first tourism destinations to lift the negative coronavirus test result requirement for fully-vaccinated visitors in late October. It was also among the first provinces to vaccinate practically 100% of its tourism sector workers. — MSJ
