CABANATUAN CITY – The Our Lady of Fatima University (OLFU) in this city is strongly backing the government’s intensified vaccination program for students as part of efforts by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to promote a safe back-to-school program nationwide amid the pandemic.

“Napakahalaga at napakagandang programa ng pamahalaan ang pagbibigay ng libreng bakuna sa mga mamamayan partikular sa mga estudyante sa kolehiyo, pati na sa kabataang nasa edad 12 hanggang 17 taong gulang na nakakatulong sa pagkakaroon ng karagdagang proteksyon laban sa COVID-19,” said OLFU-Cabanatuan campus administrator Roel Trinidad.

According to initial records, at least 86 percent of OLFU students have already been vaccinated, he said.

On Nov. 15, Trinidad said the OLFU-Cabanatuan officially started its first limited face-to-face classes comprised of 4th year-graduating students from the College of Medical Laboratory Science (CMLS).

This after the CHED approved the university’s application to hold F2F for its College of Nursing and CMLS.

It was learned that the OLFU was the first among the schools and universities in Nueva Ecija which were granted certificates of authority by the CHED to hold limited F2F classes since the pandemic started last year.
