The candidates of Binibining Pilipinas 2021 are now joining the chorus of celebrities, influencers, and notable personalities encouraging the public to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
“The only way to end this pandemic is by having all of us vaccinated,” Irene Jose, Binibining Pilipinas Executive committee member said. “Our candidates choose to use their platform to buoy the public’s confidence in available vaccines. So, we encourage everyone to get their shot. Being vaccinated doesn’t only protect you, it protects everyone important to you!”
The 34 candidates of this year’s pageant are expressing their support for COVID-19 vaccines to help convince the public about the availability, safety, and efficacy of COVID-19 vaccines that are being distributed by local governments across the country.
“We deeply appreciate this effort of Binibining Pilipinas to encourage the public to get vaccinated. The support of these 34 beautiful and intelligent women is a boon for our drive to have more people protected from this dreaded disease,” Diane Romero, JAAF Executive Director said.
Vaccination at the Smart Araneta Coliseum
As the candidates of Binibining Pilipinas help in the effort to shore up vaccine confidence, the vaccination drive of the Quezon City Local government in the Smart Araneta Coliseum continues.
On July 3, vaccination teams will administer the first dose of the vaccine for eligible individuals. And this coming August 7 to 15, second dose vaccinations under the A1 (medical frontliners), A2 (senior citizens), and A3 (people with comorbidities) categories will take place at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.
“We look forward to serving even more people who are interested in getting vaccinated. The Smart Araneta Coliseum continues to serve as a mega vaccination center that is capable of administering around 5,000 doses per day. And we are committed to continuing helping out our country as we continue to wage this fight against COVID-19,” Romero said.
The vaccination at Smart Araneta Coliseum is made possible by the Araneta Group, through the arrangements of the JAAF.
Meanwhile, to further increase interest in getting inoculated, several Araneta City establishments are rolling out discounts, promos, and special offers to people who can present a filled-out vaccination card. Among those who have special treats for vaccinated individuals are Banapple, Seafood Island, Burger King, Goldilocks, and many others.
