Maraming salamat to everyone who attended the St. Padre Pio Vaccine Booster Event on December 17, 2021. The IDPH clinic vaccinated over 70 community members and gave 200+ safety kits during Simbang Gabi!
Unfortunately, one attendee who got a booster at the event on 12/17/21 was tested for COVID-19 on 12/18/21 and was COVID-19 positive. The attendee had a mild cough and no other symptoms. They did not attend the Simbang Gabi following the vaccination event. The only close contacts at the event (>15 minutes within 6 feet) was with the vaccination nurse and another parishioner who did not attend mass.
