Earlier this morning of Friday, March 5, 2021, a Ceremonial Vaccination Program was held at the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center (BGHMC) with Medical Center Chief II, Dr. Ricardo B. Ruñez and volunteer rank and file employees of BGHMC as the first recipients of the vaccine against COVID-19 in the Cordillera.
“Today is a memorable day. It’s part of the commitment of BGH to the community, showing that vaccination is safe. So, sabi ko nga, if we do not do this, then how can we instill confidence in the community for this vaccination… Hopefully, with this, we can convince much of the community, most especially for Baguio, to have the vaccination,” said Dr. Ricardo B. Ruñez.
Dr. Ruñez was the very first person to have received the vaccine during the vaccination program.
On an announcement posted by the BGHMC on its official Facebook page on Thursday, March 4, 2021, has revealed that its Management and Medical Experts will lead the more than two thousand and seven hundred (2,700) health workforce of the hospital in the COVID-19 Vaccination Deployment Program.
