A centenarian from Barangay Bolaoit, Malasiqui, Pangasinan is the oldest recipient of Covid-19 booster shot in the town of Malasiqui in the province of Pangasinan during the fourth National Vaccination Days held from March 10-12, 2022.

The Covid vaccination team led by DOH-Ilocos Region and members of the Rural Health Unit of Malasiqui visited Claudio M. Miranda in his home to deliver his booster vax to complete his immunization against the Covid virus.

Miranda turned 100 last November 1, 2021. He received his first and second dose of Sinovac vaccine on June 2020 and July 2021, respectively.

He encouraged all senior citizens to get vaccinated and be protected against the dreaded Covid-19 virus.

“Sana po lahat ay mabakunahan nyo para lahat kaming matatanda na ay maproteksiyonan at humaba pa ang mga buhay at mabuhay ng malusog at malayo sa sakit,” Miranda said.
