The City of Parañaque has awarded Watsons pharmacists for helping create a safer and healthier community for its customers through the Resbakuna sa Botika program, a partnership between the Department of Health, local government units, and privately-owned pharmacies and drugstores.

Watsons is the only pharmacy to receive recognition from the City of Paranaque for Resbakuna sa Botika. The award was given on September 12 during the flag raising ceremony at Parañaque City Hall. Parañaque City Mayor Eric L. Olivarez and City health officer Olga Virtusio handed the recognition awards to Watsons pharmacists Regina Ramoso of Watsons Bicutan branch and Wendylyn Romualdez and Katrina Deduro of Watsons Sucat branch.

The Resbakuna sa Botika program was first rolled out in selected clinics and pharmacies in Metro Manila in January. The program was later on expanded to other areas nationwide as part of the national government’s efforts to further strengthen the national vaccination program.
