Presidential Communication Operations Office Secretary Martin Andanar and Undersecretary and Philippine Information Agency Director General Ramon Cualoping III shared the plans and strategy national rollout of the COVID-19 vaccination program in Thursday night’s conference with Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo and other local officials.
Both Andanar and Cualoping met with Mayor Remollo, Councilor Lilani Ramon, Liga ng mga Barangay President Dionie Amores, SK President Renz Macion and the Punong Barangays to update the assembled officials of the national government’s COVID response, including a message from Senator Bong Go, Chairperson of the Committee on Health and Demographics.
Cualoping urges Mayor Remollo and other local officials to help in the massive information drive to refute fake news and disinformation about the COVID-19 vaccination program that is expected to begin in earnest on March.
It is essential to disseminate the fact that the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte has a plan and protocol on the acquisition of the COVID-19 vaccines, the logistics and distribution scheme, training of health workers, who will administer the vaccines and post assessment.
Immunizing the overwhelming majority of the Filipinos is part of the national COVID recovery plan so that the economy can fully reopen.
