She said the local government was supposed to start inoculating senior citizens on Thursday but will instead wait for the Department of Health (DOH) to release guidelines on it.

“Tingin ko dadami’t dadami pa ang magpapabakuna lalo na kapag ang seniors ay papayagan na magpabakuna,” she said in a Laging Handa public briefing.
