The mayor also assures residents that the vaccine the city government will buy is proven safe and has undergone rigorous tests done by medical experts and other governments all over the world.

Zamora said that the city is also already in talks with the national government and pharmaceutical companies in procuring the vaccine and will be signing a tripartite agreement with the national government and chosen pharmaceutical company.

“Pipiliin natin yung bakuna na mataas ang efficiency, reputasyon at acceptance sa tao at pasok sa local at international standards para hindi matakot ang ating mga mamayan at maging mataas ang porsyento ng mga gustong magpabakuna (We are going to choose the vaccine with high efficiency, reputation, and acceptance. It must also be included in the local and international standards so that residents will not be scared and we could get a higher percentage of those willing to be vaccinated), Zamora said.     

The mayor said that the city government will prioritize health workers and frontliners to get the vaccines and residents who voluntarily signed up will be included in the next phase.
