Cities in NCR to start vaccination simultaneously
The vaccination programs of all cities in Metro Manila will be launched simultaneously, the chairman of the Metro Manila Council (MMC) said in a report by GMA News.
According to Joseph Morong’s “24 Oras” report, each city in the capital region will vaccinate 30% of its population, with frontline workers, the elderly, and members of the vulnerable sector as the priority.
"Sa Metro Manila po simultaneous po 'yan, wala pong mauuna. Simultaneous pong i-i-implement ang ating vaccination program. Kaya nga po ang lahat ng LGUs sa Metro Manila, naghahanda na po lahat ng aming vaccinator,” MMC chairman and Parañaque City Mayor Edwin Olivarez said.
“Pati po ‘yung ating logistics pati kung saan po magkakaroon ng vaccination center ay inihahanda na po ‘yan ng ating LGU,” he added.
Olivarez also said vaccinators will go house-to-house to inoculate the elderly who are not allowed to leave their homes amid the pandemic.
Vaccine czar Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr. earlier said the Philippines would begin COVID-19 vaccinations next month.
Metro Manila and Calabarzon are among the priority areas for vaccination due to their high number of COVID-19 cases.
Earlier this month, however, a survey found that only 25% of residents in the capital region were willing to get inoculated against COVID-19.
