The Philippine Embassy in Bahrain assisted in the inoculation of 367 additional undocumented overseas Filipinos in Bahrain.
They received their second dose of the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine on 31 July at Sitra Mall, bringing the total number to 518.
The recipients were part of the “Libreng Bakuna Para kay Juan at Juana” programme. In addition to protection against COVID-19, the programme also aims to provide undocumented Filipinos a fighting chance to find employment in the Kingdom.
These OFWs are now able to register in the BeAware app and avail all features including an electronic vaccination certificate (“green shield”).
The Embassy advises those who were vaccinated during the first and second batch of the vaccination program but were not able to get their second dose last Saturday, to proceed to Al Hoora Health Centre in Manama to complete their required vaccine dosage.
