A House of Representatives' panel has approved a resolution urging the government to prioritize national athletes participating in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics and Southeast Asian (SEA) Games in the Covid-19 vaccination program, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

The House Committee on Youth and Sports Development approved House Resolution 1507, which seeks to classify national athletes as front-liners to prioritize their vaccination against Covid-19.

Deputy Speaker Michael Romero, the author of the resolution, said prioritizing their vaccination in the soonest possible time would ensure that they will be allowed to participate in the qualifying stages.
