MANILA, Philippines — The Office of the Vice President (OVP) will bring its COVID-19 vaccine express to Catanduanes on Wednesday,  December 1.

The vaccination initiative in Catanduanes coincides with the national government’s three-day national vaccination drive from November 29 to December 1.

“Kasi isa sa pinakahuli talaga na nabigyan ‘yung Bicol region. Mabagal ‘yung pagdala sa ‘min. Ngayon pa lang nagca-catch up. Pero nung mga naunang buwan, ang bagal talaga ng pagpadala,” she added.

(One of the last areas that received COVID-19 vaccines was the Bicol region. The deployment of vaccines  is slow. We’re catching up just now. But, during the earlier months, the delivery was slow.)

“Medyo mataas ‘yung kaso sa kanila. As of last week, nung nag-request sila sa ‘tin, Alert Level 4 sila. So, nagre-request sila para mapabilis ‘yung pag-dispense ng bakuna,” she noted.

(The number of cases in Catanduanes is quite high. As of last week, when they requested us, they were under Alert Level 4. So, they made the request to expedite the dispensing of vaccines.)

The vaccine express is the OVP’s initiative, in partnership with local government units, wherein Robredo’s team would provide vaccinators to hasten the administration of vaccines.
