‘Tabak’ troopers receive Covid-19 vaccine booster shots

AT LEAST 113 individuals have received their coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) vaccine booster shots at Camp Cesar Sang-an Station Hospital (CCSSH), the medical facility of the Army’s 1st Infantry “Tabak” Division (ID).

This, as the CCSSH headed by Lieutenant Colonel Jussel Parlan has started administering Covid-19 vaccine boosters Monday, December 27, to fortify the protection of the 1ID personnel against Covid-19.

Sixty-five of the 113 recipients received their vaccine booster on Monday, December 27, and the remaining 48 on Tuesday, December 28. The administration of the vaccine booster ends Thursday, December 30.

Captain Mary Jephte Mañebog, 1ID information officer, said in a phone interview that the recipients of the vaccine booster include military officers, enlisted personnel and dependents, as well as civilian employees of the command.

Mañebog said they received AstraZeneca vaccine booster administered by the CCSSH personnel.

She added that those given the vaccine booster shot are vaccinees who received the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccines six months ago.

A study shows that getting a vaccine booster would effectively fight against Omicron, a coronavirus variant initially discovered in South Africa.

To date, the 1ID, which is based in Labangan, Zamboanga del Sur, remains Covid-free. (SunStar Zamboanga)
