Vince Dizon, 4 hospital personnel receive COVID-19 vaccine in Caloocan

Testing czar Vince Dizon and four medical personnel were the first to receive COVID-19 vaccine at Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital, formerly Tala Sanitarium, in Caloocan City Monday.

Dr. Alfonso Victorino Famaran, DJNRMH, medical center chief, was the first to get inoculated with CoronaVac. He was followed by the hospital’s nursing service chief Samuel Sumilang.

Dizon followed and then two more nurses. A report by PTV-4 stated that Dizon’s blood pressure slightly went up so he rest a little bit before the inoculation.
