LAPU-LAPU CITY, Philippines- Lapu-Lapu City Mayor Junard “Ahong” Chan expressed his willingness to get immunized with the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccine.

Chan said this to encourage Oponganons to participate in the COVID-19 vaccination, especially that some are afraid of the vaccine’s so-called adverse effects.

Chan, however, said that he would prefer to be administered with the Sinovac, instead of other brands of the vaccine such as Pfizer BioNtech, which is expected to arrive in the region anytime soon.

“Seguro ako, together with Dr. Loreche from the DOH, dungan mi nga magpa-vaccine,” Chan said.

Earlier, the Department of Health (DOH)-7 said that the vaccine might already arrive starting tomorrow, February 12, 2021, until February 15, 2021.

Chan also said that the city is planning to distribute leaflets, which contain information about the vaccine to educate the public.

During their simulation this morning, Chan said that they are targeting to immunize 330 persons per day.

As of the moment, Chan said that they have already identified around 1,300 healthcare workers from public and private hospitals, which will be given priority in the COVID-19 vaccination program.

Aside from them, Chan said they will also prioritize several sectors such as Public Utility Vehicle (PUV) drivers and public market vendors.

The city government will also start to profile those who will be prioritized in the vaccination program, by registering them online or by filling-up registration forms. /rcg
