In a bid to increase vaccine willingness and celebrate COVID-19 vaccination in the country, the Department of Health (DOH), in collaboration with the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation (PAGCOR) and the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF) has launched the Bakunado Panalo raffle. The said raffle provides cash prizes to over 100 Filipinos, with the monthly draws happening in the months of October and November, and the grand draw during December.
The October draw provides a cash prize of Php5,000 each to 50 winners. Upon validation of required documents, the DOH is proud to announce the list of winners.
Some winners have shared their sentiments on the importance of getting vaccinated. Jessiel Garcia, one of the lucky winners who got vaccinated in Davao City, shares via text message: “Pabakuna na po kayo para sa safety po at lalo na sa ating pamilya. Ito po ay isa karangalan na mabakuna tayo ng libre.”
Senior citizens have also won the raffle. Rosilla Pascual, 68, from Navotas City shares how the raffle is of help to her: “Napakalaking tulong po ito bilang suporta sa pambili ng gamot para sa aking maintenance. Inaanyayahan ko po ang lahat na magpabakuna bilang pagsuporta sa ating gobyerno at proteksyon sa ating sarili at minamahal.”
The winners have been individually contacted to facilitate the process of claiming their cash prizes, which will be done in the succeeding weeks.
The validation of November winners is underway, and the results are expected to be released early December.
