Parañaque City is allocating P250 million for its vaccination program against coronavirus disease 2019, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

Mayor Edwin Olivarez said the city government will prioritize the frontliners, senior citizens, and the vulnerable sector.

Olivarez said the P200 million will be sourced from the 2021 general fund while the remaining P50 million will come from the budget of the local school board.

Olivarez, who is also the chairman of the Metro Manila Council, said most mayors had also earmarked funds for the procurement of COVID-19 vaccine next year.

“We are only waiting for guidelines from the DOH (Department of Health) and FDA (Food and Drug Administration) so we can purchase directly to the authorized pharmaceutical companies,” Olivarez said.

The city has logged 8,049 coronavirus cases of which 206 have died based on the report of the City Health Office.

A total of 7,742 patients have recovered from the disease while 101 are still sick with the virus.

Amid the threat of a coronavirus variant that emerged in the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Europe and now spreading to other countries, which experts said is more contagious, Olivarez already came out with a memorandum order and told village chiefs to be vigilant.

“I ordered our village chiefs to strictly monitor all ‘balikbayans’ in their area of jurisdiction specifically those coming from UK, Europe, or South Africa and if they have any findings, I told them to immediately coordinate with the City Health Office for proper and appropriate health intervention and management,” Olivarez said.
