ANGELES CITY––After inoculating persons deprived of liberty at the district jail, the city government deployed a team on Tuesday, Oct. 26, to vaccinate against COVID-19 at least 260 persons detained in six police stations in this city.

In a statement, the city government said since detainees are staying in closed spaces, vaccination against the viral disease is necessary.
