Deployment of vaccines should be faster than the spread of COVID-19 infection.
This was the remark of Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso as more medical frontliners, elderly and persons with comorbidities are jabbed with COVID-19 vaccines in Manila.
Upon arrival in the country’s ports of entry, COVID-19 vaccines should be deployed immediately instead of keeping them in storage, Domagoso said.
“Tayo po dapat, vaccination is faster than infection. If we want to achieve herd immunity, magandang gawin ‘yan as soon as possible,” Domagoso told DZRH.
“Ang aming lungsod nakapaghanda naman. Nakakatanggap namin kami ng bakuna, syempre panaka-naka,” the Mayor added.
As of Saturday, about 182,130 AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Sinovac, and Sputnik V vaccines have already been deployed in the nation’s capital (FMO/MPIO)
