More than 26,000 policemen, who previously said no to Corona Virus Disease (COVID-19) vaccines, have changed their mind and now agreed to get inoculated, a ranking police official said on Tuesday, Feb. 16.
his, as the Administrative Support for COVID-19 Task Force (ASCOTF) of the Philippine National Police (PNP) has stepped up its information drive to convince all its personnel to avail of the government’s vaccination against the coronavirus infection.
Lt. Gen. Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar, Deputy Chief for Administration and concurrent PNP-ASCOTF commander, said the aggressive information drive is being done through an application exclusive for all the PNP personnel.
Through PNP CODA (COVID-19 Data), Eleazar said videos and fact sheets from the Department of Health and other scientists about the benefits of vaccination are regularly posted to educate both the uniformed and civilian personnel on how the vaccine works and its benefits amid the continuous threat of infection from the deadly virus.
“Some of our personnel are really hesitant to avail of the COVID-19 vaccine and we attribute it to the deluge of information that they would read or see especially in the social media. But as our health experts always say, vaccination far outweighs the potential risks and claims of danger,” said Eleazar.
“So what we do now is to persuade them or convince them to be vaccinated. But we would like to clarify that we are not forcing them, we are just trying to explain everything to them,” he added.
Eleazar said they expect more policemen to avail of the COVID-19 vaccines as the PNP has expanded the information dissemination on the vaccination using other platforms such as direct talks with PNP personnel.
Given the influx of access traffic brought about by the simultaneous NATIONWIDE VACCINATION and the additional module of the SELF-ASSESSMENT, the PNPCODA is experiencing access traffic. Given the priority for the SWAB TESTING in CRAME, PRO7 and PRO11 and the NATIONAWIDE VACCINATION ROLL-OUT, the PNPCODA team is exhausting all efforts to make appropriate adjustment to accommodate all with the limited resources allocated to the system.
Please bear with us while we are making the necessary adjustment and appropriate recommendation to make changes in the directives and instruction of DPRM/TCDS in the use of the SELF-ASSESSMENT as needed during this time.
In this regard, the daily SELF-ASSESSMENT will be available during these schedules 12am-6am, 12nn-3pm and 8pm-10pm.
