NCAA keeps fingers crossed on vax

    142

    ALTHOUGH the numbers are not encouraging, the NCAA is not losing hope it would get the approval of the parents of its athletes when it comes to its COVID-19 inoculation plan.

    Things can change if and when the country’s vaccination program begins, according to a highly-reliable Malaya-Business Insight source.

    “Sa informal survey, mababa (positive responses). By Thursday, we will collect all the data.

    Walang sumasampa sa 50 percent,” the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said.

    “Siguro kapag nagsimula na and mayroon ng mga nabakunahan, magbabago iyan. Nakikiramdam sila.”

    The source said the country’s oldest collegiate will secure doses of the vaccine through the help of its broadcast partner GMA 7, but will have to adopt a wait-and-see approach before proceeding with the plan.

    “Iyon ang isang possibility talaga. Actually, kukunin na sana namin iyong mga order na vaccine. Ang problema, iyong acceptability. Baka mamaya orderin namin tapos pagdating dito wala namang magpapabakuna,” the source said.

    “Tinutulungan kami ng GMA, sila ang kukuha para sa amin kaya lang huwag muna.

    Siguraduhin muna natin na magpapabakuna iyong mga bata kasi baka mamaya masayang.”
