Vaccination campaign for Indigenous Peoples
The newly designated DILG R3 Regional Director, Karl Caesar Rimando conducted a courtesy visit to NCIP R3 Regional Director Atty. Roland P. Calde. RD Rimando discussed with RD Calde that vaccination status of Indigenous Peoples from the provinces of Zambales and Aurora are relatively low. RD Calde stated the continuous efforts of both NCIP Provincial Offices and LGUs to push the vaccination campaign for Indigenous Peoples. Somehow, IPs from those areas are hesitant to be vaccinated. Continuous Covid-19 IEC campaigns were made by NCIP R3 in coordination with DOH and LGUs so they can maximize the vaccination rollout intended for the Indigenous Peoples. NCIP R3 and DILG R3 will continue to establish strong coordination for the welfare of ICCs/IPs. As a token of appreciation, RD Calde gave copies of 3 CTBs of Project EPANAW.
