Ibinahagi ni Vaccine Czar Carlito Galvez, Jr. na magkakaroon ng symbolic vaccine rollout para sa A4 priority group na gaganapin ngayong Hunyo 7.
“Meron kaming tatawagin na rollout or symbolic rollout this coming June 7. It will be attended by high officials, the secretaries,” pahayag ni Sec. Galvez.
Magkakaroon din umano ng pagdiriwang sa ibang lokal na pamahalaan upang gunitain ang pagpapabakuna ng kanilang mga lokal na opisyal at economic frontliners.
“Ito talaga yung inaantay ng LGUs considering that we have to protect our economic and government workers. Nakikita na ito ay humigit kumulang 12 million population and they are rearing and very eager to be vaccinated,” pahayag ni Sec. Galvez.
Sa kabila ng gaganapin na symbolic vaccine rollout, nilinaw ni Sec. Galvez na sisimulan ang pagbabakuna ng A4 priority group pagdating ng inaasahang bakuna mula sa COVAX facility.
“Ang pinaka-rollout talaga sa economic frontliners at government workers ay ‘pag dumating na ang main bulk from COVAX, ‘yung Pfizer at ‘yung almost two million na Sinovac. So more or less meron tayong 5 million this June 15. Nakikita natin na medyo okay na ang ating supply this mid of June,” paglilinaw ni Sec. Galvez.
Sa panahong magsimula na ang rollout, ibabase umano sa edad ang prayoridad ng pagbabakuna.
“Nu’ng nagkaroon kami ng [Inter-Agency Task Force] meeting, napagkasunduan na dalawa (ang classification sa A4) 40 and up tapos 39 and below,” ani Sec. Galvez.
Maaari rin umanong gamitin ng mga lokal na pamahalaan ang prioritization policy na ito ng gobyerno sa pagbabakuna ng kanilang nasasakupan.
