The governor was brought to MCDC last June 3.

According to the press release posted on the provincial government’s website, Cagas received last May 16 his first dose of CoronaVac, the anti-COVID-19 vaccine developed by Chinese firm Sinovac, at his residence.

It added the governor qualified as recipient of the vaccine because he was part of the vulnerable sector, particularly A2 or senior citizens.
