Binay wants essential workers included in vaccine priority list
Former Vice President Jejomar Binay wants essential workers included in the A1 priority list for vaccination after the IATF allowed governors and mayors to join the list.
"Kung na-reclassify ng IATF ang local officials para mabakunahan na agad sila, dapat isabay na ang vendors, grocery workers, delivery riders, media at iba pang economic frontliners na nasa A4 category. Importante rin ang ginagawala nila. They hold the solution to jumpstarting the economy," Binay said in a statement.
Binay also raised concern that the COVAX Facility led by the World Health Organization (WHO) may not approve the proposal of IATF to include local officials in the A1 category which used to be reserved only for healthcare workers.
"Ang dahilan ng gobyerno ay hindi papayagan ng COVAX Facility na unahin ang economic frontliners. Yung bang pag-reclassify sa local executives para mauna silang bakunahan, approved ng COVAX? Nagtatanong lang po," Binay said.
