Today’s segment of USWAG, Pinas! Special Edition highlights the vaccination rollout of the Philippine National Police (PNP) in the Caraga Region, which had been placed under close watch following the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Delta Variant scare after Filipino seafarers traveling from Indonesia disembarked at the Butuan City Port without undergoing proper safety protocols before heading to Albay.

The episode also features the mitigating steps being implemented by the Police Regional Office (PRO) 13 to minimize the spread of COVID-19 among PNP personnel, such as the ‘No Vaccine, No Entry Policy’, and the inauguration of COVID-19 facility by PNP Chief Police General Guillermo Lorenzo Eleazar during his Command Visit at Camp Rafael C. Rodriguez in Butuan City.

Derived from the Bisayan term ‘uswag’ which means progress, this special edition of the social media program aims to inform viewers about the ongoing mass immunization in different communities across the nation, the tireless efforts of healthcare workers and medical frontliners in battling the public health crisis, and interviews from inoculated Filipinos and medical experts on the benefits of getting the jab to further boost vaccine confidence amongst the people.

USWAG, Pinas! Special Edition is a flagship program of the Presidential Broadcast Staff – Radio Television Malacañang (RTVM).
