GALVEZ: Vaccine acceptance is ‘growing’

National Task Force against COVID-19 (NTF) Chief Implementer and Vaccine Czar Carlito Galvez Jr. said on Thursday (May 13) that the public’s acceptance of the COVID-19 vaccines is “growing.”

Secretary Galvez stated in President Duterte’s Talk to the People that many local government units (LGUs) called him and Senator Bong Go to ask for additional vaccines.

“Ibig sabihin talaga ‘yong mga LGUs talagang kinakapos na sila ng vaccine dahil marami na pong gustong magpa-vaccine…at saka ‘yong mga ‘yong tinatawag natin ‘yong mga economic frontliners at saka mga government workers.”

Galvez said that the LGUs and the private sector are “committed to have a better Christmas this year.” He added that that is their “overall objective.”

“Ang national objective natin is pagdating ng Christmas this year ay maganda na po ang ating sitwasyon. Para na po tayong Israel at saka para na po tayo ‘yong nangyayari sa Indonesia, at saka sa China,” he shared.

Meanwhile, Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo Año assured that the LGUs will be prepared for the rollout of the vaccines especially in the NCR Plus.

“Pero meanwhile po, ang pinakaimportante ay kung paano natin maidudugtong o mapapatawid natin bago dumating mga bakuna na ‘to na hindi na taas ‘yong numero ng ating mga COVID cases at diyan po papasok ang DILG, ang LGUs, ang Philippine National Police. At katulad po ng sabi ninyo, ang mga local chief executives, barangay captain, ang siyang magiging accountable at responsible.”
