MANILA – Some 200 medical front liners will be the first to be vaccinated against Covid-19 on Tuesday (March 2), as Manila began rolling out its vaccination drive a day after officials delivered 3,000 doses of Sinovac vaccines.
Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso receive the doses of vaccines at the Sta. Ana Hospital storage facility. The vaccines can cover 1,500 people receiving two doses.
Domagoso said Covid-19 vaccination will remain voluntary and not mandatory. Those who consent to receive the vaccine will be accommodated “while supplies last”.
“I recommend that they grab the opportunity to get the vaccines which we have long been waiting for,” the mayor said in Filipino. CAM/Expat Media
