RESBAKUNA: COVID-19 Vaccination in TGH

New hope glimmer among the Talon General Hospital employees as they receive their first doses of AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine last March 2021.

With God’s grace, TGH is among the hospitals in Tarlac City that received vaccines from the international COVAX Facility. The rollout of vaccine is a huge step in beating the pandemic and is much-awaited by the medical frontliners. The TGH Vaccination Team, which is led by the hospital’s chief nurse Ms. Elynor Maquidang, with advisers Dr. Raymond Talon, Dr. Kevin Talon, and Hospital Administrator Mr. Enrico Talon, has worked hard side-by-side with the Regional and Provincial DOH,  and Tarlac City Government for its success.

Orientation & Myth Busters

The TGH Vaccination Team kicked off the drive through an orientation by the hospital’s Infection Control Officer, Mr. Julius Montojo which was conducted before the vaccination day itself. He was able to reiterate the DOH guidelines and explain the vaccination process to the Hospital staff. The orientation also paved way in correcting myths and misinformation. Mr. Montojo’s discussion included the development of vaccines, research findings, and what to expect after receiving the first dose. The staff members were given opportunity to ask questions and advice which helped ease their minds before deciding to be inoculated.

Setting an Example and Doing our Part

To set an example and give encouragement to the rest of the TGH employees, the management, doctors, and department heads volunteered to receive the vaccines first. The hospital is grateful that the rest of its employees took the initiative to get vaccinated themselves soon after the first batch.

Get Protection

While waiting for the vaccine rollout for the general public, TGH encourages everyone to learn more about the vaccines - how it can protect you, your loved ones, and the community. Ask advice from medical professionals and read from credible sources like the DOH and WHO official websites. The public is strongly urged to get vaccinated for our community to be finally be free from the horrors brought by COVID-19.
