MANILA, Philippines — The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) may issue an order asking some local governments to explain why they have been delayed in submitting their vaccination data to the national government’s database, according to Undersecretary Jonathan Malaya.

Some 30 percent of local governments have not been updating their records at the Vaccination Operations Reporting System regularly as required, Malaya noted, resulting in 10 million line entry gaps.

“It’s possible that the DILG would issue show cause orders against these [local government units that] have yet to submit updated data up to now,” Malaya said at the Laging Handa briefing.

Interior Security Eduardo Año earlier said the delay in the data submission underscored the need for each local government to have a senior data officer who would monitor compliance with the daily reporting requirement.

Meanwhile, Malaya said the DILG had directed the Philippine National Police and the Bureau of Fire Protection, especially their medical personnel, to help local governments to ramp up their vaccination drives.

He also said the DILG assessed the performance of local governments daily.

“The people can be assured that if we see any negligence on the part of local government units, we would see to it that they would be held accountable,” he said.
