The Philippines has been in a state of calamity for almost two years now. Several lockdowns and restrictions were made to contain the COVID-19 virus. People are advised to stay at home may it be in their luxury homes or simple houses. No one could go out for quite some time. Different types of quarantines were implemented a month after the other to identify the best strategy that will be beneficial to many. Due to these numerous lockdowns, quarantines, and restrictions, the Philippines even made it to the international headline of being a nation with one of the longest lockdowns.

Many countries are experiencing Covid-19 differently. We all have different immune system responses. We don’t have to be tested positive. This article talks about the pandemic in the Philippines and how we can stop this communicable disease.
The Philippines in the Pandemic
Everyone was troubled because of this unforeseen dilemma. No one’s ready to be facing this kind of problem. The big and the small people were challenged and distressed. Companies, businesses, and establishments were affected, affecting all its employees and people. Some companies closed, and some needed to lay off employees to survive in the middle of the pandemic. Some families struggled a lot because the provider lost his job. These are just a few of what the pandemic has caused to people. This is just the economic side. Sickness and death are still not counted in this, but you see how damaging this was to the life of many.
In the early pandemic, people are prohibited to go out. And if one will go out, facemask, face shield, and social distancing are already part of the game. You couldn’t recognize people right away, and the worst part is you cannot mingle, give hugs and kisses to the people you love most. Everything was online and face-to-face is taboo. Everyone got bored, and some reached their bottom and were caught with depression. The pandemic is a whole lot of challenges that touched and disturb the very core of every human.
The government on the other side was focused on how to limit these kinds of harm. Webinars about well-being, provision of necessities, strict guidelines for outdoor activities, and strategic ways of vaccination rollout were implemented. But these are all not enough because people have their beliefs and their rights whether to get vaccinated or not. Some comply, and some have their stand.
Vaccination and its Importance to the Nation

The Department of Health calls the attention of people to share in the responsibility of vaccination, but since it’s not required, people have the free will and their choice to respond in a way that will be most peaceful for them. With the government’s power, recently, October 30 to December 1st were declared Vaccination Day to accommodate workers to have their vaccines and to fasten the vaccination rollout.
Vaccination is important. It doesn’t just keep a person protected and healthy, but it also prevents the people around you from being sick especially the most vulnerable ones- the children, the elders, and the ones who are already sick.
Vaccination doesn’t just work against disease or death; it helps save lives especially today when a lot of lives are already gone.
Vaccines also work for the benefit of the economy. The government has been encouraging people to get their vaccines done to help in the revival of the economy. As soon as the nation reached its immunization goal, the economy has a greater chance to bounce back.
As of December 8, 2021, according to Statistica Research Department around 39.56 million people were already vaccinated in the Philippines including those who received first dose vaccines only. Roughly 54.03 million people are just waiting for their second dose while 0.64 thousand already had their booster shot.
COVID-19 vaccination in the Philippines started March 2021 and the goal is to reach 58 million people by the end of the year.
Fruits of Being Fully Vaccinated
Apart from being a healthier person, you are being protected from a more serious effect of the COVID-19 virus as you allow yourself to take two jabs of COVID-19 vaccines. You are not just protecting yourself, but you are protecting the people around you, your family, and the most vulnerable ones.
Since vaccinations aren’t mandatory, the government, different companies, and several business establishments give extra merit or favors to those people who will cooperate to speed up the vaccine rollout. In this way, citizens will be more enthusiastic and proactive in having their vaccines. Everyone is being creative in their ways to support the government’s drive towards herd immunity.
To be more fully convinced to be fully vaccinated, here are some advantages or favors you can receive from being fully vaccinated:
1. Online Shopping Vouchers and Free Shipping

Starting to get bored staying in your house and lot? You don’t have to prolong your boredom. Your vaccine cards will act as your identification cards as you enter malls or other establishments.

It is not discrimination, but it is the company’s right to prioritize the protection of their customers and their people. Most of the malls and business establishments now look for vaccination cards to see if a person who will enter their vicinity is fully vaccinated.
5. Fashion Brands Gives Discounts to Fully Vaccinated Customers

Prevent a Covid positive test result
Continue to stay at home especially if things aren’t urgent and important. Still, avoid crowded places, and if interested to meet up with family and friends, stay in open areas. Limit physical touch and continue social distancing. When feeling sick or with symptoms, just stay at home and don’t pretend like it’s just normal coughs or colds. Better be mindful and careful than sorry. Continue to use facemask as you talk to people. Stay healthy by eating nutritious food and adding vitamins to your intake. Exercise and do some stretching if possible. Take enough rest and always stay hydrated.
These are simple steps to making yourself healthier and more protected. In this time and season, it is better to be healthy than anything in this world.
