The Army’s 303rd Infantry Brigade reported yesterday that 98 percent of its personnel assigned in Negros Occidental have been vaccinated.
Brig. Gen. Inocencio Pasaporte, 303rd IB commander, said that 99 percent of 303IB personnel stationed at Camp Gerona in Murcia, and 79th Infantry Battalion soldiers is fully vaccinated, while the figure is 95 percent for the 62nd Infantry Battalion troopers since the inoculation roll out started early this year.
Pasaporte is supervising two Army battalions in Negros Occidental.
He said that the 303rd Infantry Brigade remains ready to serve Negrenses in these challenging times, stressing that availability of vaccines is a welcome development for them to carry out their duties.
Our troops will make good use of this opportunity to confidently and carefully bestow our duties as we jointly seek an end to this pandemic,” Pasaporte said.
He also thanked the provincial government of Negros Occidental and other local government units to have Army soldiers be among the first to receive COVID-19 vaccines.*
