Basilan General Hospital’s health workers and personnel, spearheaded by Dr. SITTI NURUSSAMSI CASALIN-AMILASAN, MPH, Medical Center Chief I, were the primary recipients of COVID-19 vaccine. This means that the island of Basilan has more healthy and COVID-resilient doctors, nurses, midwives and nursing attendants who will continue providing quality health care in the midst of the COVID Pandemic and who will contribute to the herd immunity that the world needs to achieve to be immune to the virus.
