“Nasa stage po kami ng online registration, ngayon po ang nagpapa-register ay wala pang isang libo. Ang tao po ay choosy din, sila ay namimili, tinatanong kung anong klaseng bakuna ang ating ibibigay, eto po ay masusi naming pinag-aaralan (We are currently in the online registration stage, but we only have less than a thousand registrants. People are choosy, they are asking what kind of vaccine they will receive, so we are carefully studying it),” the mayor said.

“We have to embark a massive education campaign para maunawaan talaga ng mga tao yung bakuna dahil [sa] kanilang fear (so they could understand what the vaccines are for),” he added.

Ponce assured that the local government will prioritize the vaccination of medical frontliners once the vaccines have arrived in Pateros.
