MANILA – The Department of Health (DOH) stated on Thursday that whether or not a person is vaccinated against Covid-19 will not have a consequence on employment or cash assistance in regions where community quarantines are in effect.

Vaccination will also continue even if there is an enhanced community quarantine in place, such as in the National Capital Region from Aug. 6 to 20.

Huwag po tayong maniwala sa fake news na ‘pag hindi nabakunahan walang ayuda o hindi papapasukin sa trabaho. Iwasan po nating magpakalat ng mga fake news gaya ng mga ito na nagdudulot ng kalituhan sa ating mga kababayan (Let’s not believe fake news that vaccination status is needed for employment or receiving cash aid from the government. Avoid spreading fake news as it brings confusion to our countrymen),” the DOH said in a statement.

According to the Department of Health, the most important thing to remember is to follow basic health precautions to avoid contracting or spreading Covid-19.

Suotin ang face mask at face shield nang maayos, mag-physical distancing at magdala ng alcohol at sariling ballpen kapag tayo ay magpapabakuna nang ayon sa schedule (Wear face masks and face shields properly, observe physical distancing, bring alcohol and your own ballpen when going to your vaccination schedule),” the DOH said.

The DOH also encouraged local governments to undertake registration in order to better manage vaccination facilities and prevent inoculation efforts from becoming Delta variant super spreader events.
