Leo Martinez: “Fully vaccinated na ang Lolo Badong n’yo!”
Veteran actor Leo Martinez recently took to social media as he shared that he’s fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and urged the public to get vaccinated as well.
Leo, who was known as “Lolo Badong” in GMA Network’s rom-com series “Owe My Love”, happily shared on his Instagram account last Friday that he’s fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
However, he didn’t disclose what COVID-19 vaccine brand he received since he blurred out his vaccination card in his Instagram post.
The actor also thanked Marikina Mayor Marcelino Teodoro and Marikina City government for a fast and smooth vaccination process. He also wished that more people would be inoculated against the coronavirus disease.
“Maraming salamat kay Mayor Marcy Teodoro at sa Marikina City para sa napaka bilis at maayos na proseso! Dumating kami ng 8am at natapos ng 8:30am. Ang dasal ko ay ma-vaccinate na tayong lahat soon para pwede na tayo magkita-kita!” Leo said in his Instagram post.
Meanwhile, Inquirer reported on Thursday that Marikina City government was hoping to get more Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine doses as the national government cited the city as an “ideal vaccination site” because of the orderly process of storing and administering the vaccine vials.
In a statement on Thursday, Marikina Mayor Marcelino Teodoro said that they’re wishing to receive more Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine doses now that the National Vaccination Operation Center and the Department of Health (DOH) have touted the city’s system as a model for vaccinations.
Teodoro also reminded his constituents that while they appreciated the growing confidence on the COVID-19 vaccines, residents must still pre-register with Marikina’s City Health Office so that they would be listed among COVID-19 vaccine recipients.
“Pre-registration ang gagawin natin, walang walk-in para sa Pfizer dahil nakita naman natin, ang pag administer nito ay per batch at may Tamang temperatura dapat. Kaya ang mangyayari hindi tayo mag-eentertain ng walk-in kundi lahat ng gustong makatanggap ng bakunang Pfizer ay kailangan mag pre-register at kung talagang preference niya ito Merong maayos na queuing at may maayos na registration na dapat masunod,” Teodoro said.
